Ron and Sue of Millersburg, Ohio are no strangers to the tiny house movement, they’ve been at it for nearly three decades now.

This is their latest tiny home, built by the couple in 2001.

Today they help couples start their first tiny house, sharing what they’ve learned on their blog. Their motto, “Live small to have it all! Live rich with just what you need!”

They constructed it all by hand over the course of six years.

The couple considers their move toward “rational habitation” to be a series of lifelong learning steps.

They insist that you should “live in a place that you feel is home, not just a house.”

For them, their tiny house doesn’t have that hyper-minimal, sleek look that we see so often.

Rather, it celebrates the clutter and color of life.

“Don’t get rid of the things that make you want to come home,” they advise.

“If you truly love an item, and it fits somewhere in your space, don’t feel you have to get rid of it.”

The result has a casual bohemian vibe.
