It’s Not The Size Of Your House

 It’s not the size of your house, it’s how you live your life.

All of us in the Tiny House Community are familiar with and in some way intrigued by the idea that we don’t need a big house or a fancy car to be happy. It’s not about the house.

Minimaliste Tiny House

Sequoia exterior

by Philippe Beaudoin

Minimaliste is a startup company, we are working with a 3D artist and the Sequoia is a result of six months of design. I started the Facebook page a couple of months ago and it helped me to find some serious investors.

These tiny houses are fully equipped and designed so that a group of 2 to 4 people can live there. In addition, they have the added bonus of being mobile, that is to say, they can be towed by a conventional truck such as a Ford F-150 or F-250. Main or second home, cottage, studio, office, hunting camp … Minimaliste’s creativity has no limits. In addition, the company offers a travel and delivery service so that customers need not own a truck if they are interested in our products. Continue reading
