Destiny Dweller!

Destiny Dweller!

I have lived in my 160 sq. ft. tiny house in NY for about 8 months now and have loved every second of it! Fully equipped with a living area, dining room table, deep closet, kitchen, full bathroom, and two lofts, this house is the perfect fit for me active and carefree lifestyle.

The unique thing about my tiny is that it has the capabilities of being completely off the grid. This means that I can park my THOW anywhere I’d like: on the beach, in a rain forest, on top of a mountain… anywhere!

Some off-grid features include a wood burning stove, compostable toilet, rain water collection system, and solar panels. I love being able to bring my home with my wherever I go! Get a sneak peak of my house and my lifestyle at my blog at destinydweller.com


Come see Ashlee Fazio’s Destiny Dweller and over 10 other tiny homes for yourself on September 23 & 24, 2017 in Stoughton, MA during the 3rd Annual BIG Tiny House Festival!

How to Buy Gifts for a Tiny House Dweller

In my family, we always ask each other for gift suggestions, but this year there’s been an extra emphasis.

The Beauty of Building Your Own Home

The Beauty of Building Your Own Home

I was working the Boston Tumbleweed Tiny House Workshop this weekend and as always I found it encouraging to be in a room of 60+ people who are all interested in carefully crafting their lives. While I listened to the attendees talk about their plans and dreams, the normal tiny house aspirations came up: economic freedom, environmentalContinue Reading

Just Roll With It: Behind the Tiny House

Just Roll With It: Behind the Tiny House

Building my own house is not a dream that I’ve harbored since my childhood like some of my tiny house fellows. Instead, I came to it through a series of economic and logistic considerations. After much budget-crunching and soul-searching, I realized that building my own tiny house was a way to start my life atContinue Reading
