“Our Golden tiny house is currently located in my tiny hometown of Golden, Texas. It’s located about 80 miles east of Dallas. I was raised here, and my husband and I moved back from the city about 1 1/2 months ago into our custom built tiny home on wheels. Finding a place to park a THOW can be trickier in the city, so we were very fortunate to be able to temporarily move it to family property in the country.

At Home with Kelly Sutton via A Beautiful Mess“We chose to go tiny for several reasons; the major ones being the desire for mobility, financial independence and environmental neutrality. Like most people our age, we’d been sinking thousands of dollars into renting, and we wanted something to call our own that allowed the freedom to move. We had acquired so much stuff over the years, we both started to feel the weight and burden of it. A tiny house seemed perfect for us if we were able to fully customize it to our liking, and our builders at American Tiny House ended up being a great choice. My husband, Canaan, is studying to be an environmental biologist, so the idea of decreasing our carbon footprint was really exciting to us both. Aside from all that, we just really liked the idea of living with less and focusing more on experiences and people rather than things.

“My husband’s book collection is one of our favorite things in the house. I think they’re beautiful and add a certain coziness to the space. Most people expected we would put them all in storage when we moved in, but we found a way to make them all fit nicely.

“After almost 2 months here, we are loving our home. We’ve really made it our own, and it feels like we’ve lived here for years. If you’re thinking about going tiny, just go for it!”

  • Thanks for sharing your house wow what a wonderful house it looks so beautiful and pleasant.

  • where is the sink in your kitchen from? We are about to renovate our home and this is exactly what we are looking for.

  • Love everything about this. Where did you get the horse shoe? thanks

  • Hi Kelly! Did you still end up leaving some furniture or items in storage or were you able to incorporate everything you wanted to keep into the new space? Thank you!

  • This tiny house is beautiful! Probably the first that I’ve seen that looks big enough to deal with haha. Though it would be rough to not be able to entertain very often – I suppose you have to be open to outdoor eating!

    Julia –

  • I find tiny homes to be so intriguing. I would love to try it one day but I don’t know if I could actually go through with it.

  • I’m obsessed with the tiny house movement! So cool to see this. Thanks for sharing.


  • Thanks for sharing your home. I went to the Tiny Home Expo at the St Johns Fairgrounds last month. I am working towards going tiny. I live in SO FL and do not have a place to put my home! 🙁 I hope this movement takes hold down here. For now I am cleaning out and getting rid of years of STUFF! I love your floors. My only hesitation is the loft….I think I want a Murphy bed….thoughts?

  • I love how tiny but amazing your house is! The idea of people vs possessions is great as well!

  • The embroidery above the stove ? I have to try and recreate this! Agh where oh where to start?!

  • Such a beautiful home! Anyone who will live in this place will sure to enjoy staying inside it. And the outdoor place is such a beauty as well.

  • Your house is so beautiful!! Thank you for sharing!

    What is that wonderful color you used on the bathroom walls?

  • This Is the cutest home I have ever seen! I love how all the space is really used!

  • What a beautiful place! I’m in love with this stunning kitchen!

  • We entertain all the time!! It holds more people inside than you’d think. Plus we made our outside area really fun and inviting for warmer days. We’re hosting our annual Christmas party soon and expect 30+ people to come hang. Basically what I’m saying is you don’t have to give up entertaining. 🙂 thanks!!

  • I’d love to learn the paint color in the bathroom, if you wouldn’t mind sharing it! Thanks! What a beautiful, serene space!

  • This is incredible and feels a lot bigger than many of the tiny homes I’ve seen before. What is the square footage??

  • I’ve been obsessed with HGTV’s “House Hunters Tiny House”show this year. This house is so adorable and makes me want to purchase a tiny house myself. I love the back patio area.

  • Your home is absolutely beautiful! Do you have people over often? That is one of my hold-ups with tiny homes. I love to entertain!

  • What an incredibly cool space! i live in 900 sq ft so this is certainly inspiring <3

  • The little record station is my favorite detail! You really used every inch.
    Thank you so much for sharing with us.
