Off-Grid Tiny House in the North Carolina Mountains

Off-Grid Tiny House in the North Carolina Mountains

Laura and Matt built their tiny home on a mountain property in North Carolina. They used Tumbleweed tiny house plans but modified the design to fit on a foundation. Lugging their tools and materials up the hill, the construction of their tiny dream cabin was a tiring process. This tiny home was most definitely built with love!

Laura and Matt’s tiny home is completely off-grid. They draw power from their solar system and bring drinking water in by hand. The home is heated with a propane heater in the winter. Laura and Matt share the space with their cat, Piglet, and enjoy the solitude of their mountain surroundings.

Laura has written a book on tiny living and maintains an informational blog on the subject. She also speaks about her experience at events, such as the Tiny House Conference.

I spent just over a year building this tiny home for my family, while also working a full time job. Before starting this I had no experience in building, electrics or plumbing & learnt everything needed from YouTube.

Tiny Home, Big Life — An Experiment in Simple Living | Erin & Dondi Harner

Tiny Home, Big Life — An Experiment in Simple Living | Erin & Dondi Harner

This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Tiny home, big life. How two twenty-somethings radically rearranged their priorities, downsized their stuff, built tiny, and live big. A happy life is a rich compilation of experiences, not stuff. Living simply gives you more time, more money, and more freedom to do what you love. Life is a compilation of experiences, not just stuff. Making the conscious decision to do things differently is both challenging and incredibly fulfilling. Dare to be different.

Erin and Dondi Harner are twenty-something professionals with a passion for living healthy, sustainable lives. Dondi is a civil engineer who works in Old Town Fort Collins, Colorado. As an engineer he is actively involved in sustainable site design for commercial and educational buildings. Growing up in Ithaca, New York, Dondi worked side-by-side with his father on many different construction and carpentry projects. This led to Dondi’s passion for alternative energy and sustainable building practices.

Erin is a nutritionist, business owner, speaker, nutrition blogger, healthy recipe creator, and published author. She works with clients nationwide to help them create optimal health through real food nutrition.

In 2012, Dondi and Erin decided to take on an experiment in simple living by building a tiny home and living a bigger life. They were disenchanted with the notion that buying more stuff would make them happy. They wanted to know if, in fact, living with less would make them happier. So, they designed and built a 181 square-foot tiny home powered by the sun. They live in their tiny home ‘Soleil’ full time and are (still) happily married. Their next project is a tiny home retreat to give others the opportunity to experience living in a tiny home for a day, week, or year.

Erin has published a book:
“Real Food, Real Simple: A Personalized Plan for More Energy, Less Stress, and Healthy Meals in Minutes” by Erin Harner

About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
