Megan Lockhart doesn’t try to hide the things that are struggles for her and her family and she’s also great about advocating for the benefits of tiny living.

Megan talks about the pros and cons, trials and tribulations, and the immense benefit Megan feels she and her family get from the tiny house lifestyle.

Megan shares how her builder forgot to install the furnace in her tiny house and how it wreaked havoc in their first winter!

Inspired by her belief that living tiny doesn’t have to mean living small.

Megan sold everything in 2021 and now resides in a tiny home with her partner Neil, 11-year-old daughter, 8-year-old son & two dogs.

Megan lives a much simpler life and runs her business full-time from the tiny house on the side of a mountain. Megan lives on 40 acres in Golden British Columbia.

Megan has been featured on reputable shows like The Insider, Go Solo, Dwell, and Tiny House Ideas among others. She’s passionate about showing others that they can make HUGE changes – including leaving the expectations of mainstream suburban life.
