Dee Williams, an Olympia, Washington-based woman, lives in a tiny mobile home with only 305 possessions. She built the 84-square-foot home on her own after being diagnosed with a potentially fatal heart condition at the age of 40. She wanted to downsize her life to make it less stressful so she converted a metal truck trailer into a furnished abode with wooden exterior. It even is equipped with a single burner for cooking, a shower, a sink and a loft-like bedroom.
It's currently situated in her friend's backyard and is solar powered. The self-project inspired her to start a company that teaches and encourages others to
do the same called 'Portland Alternative Dwellings.' It is “a company that provides resources for building tiny houses to the D.I.Y. crowd.”
This Tiny Mobile Home was Made by Dee Williams and is 84-Square-Feet
