Family Builds Tiny House Village Where All 4 Members Have Their Own Home -


Tiny-houses are popping up everywhere, but have you ever seen  village tiny houses before? In 2015, Keli & Ryan Brinks decided to buy 21 acres land in London, Ky., and put six small structures on the property. Now Keli and Ryan live in one small house, their 18-year-old daughter Lennox lives in another and their 16-year-old son Brodey lives in another.

Keli and Ryan bought the land for $57,000, and the six tiny houses on the property cost just $20,000.
“We chose London, Kentucky because of lack of housing restrictions & because there was an abundance of cheap landthan  areas of Tennessee that are closer to  family but more expensive and restricted,” Keli explained. 

At 280 square feet, it's the largest tiny home on the property. It includes a living room, a kitchen, a bathroom and a bedroom on the mezzanine.

The neighboring small house has two bathrooms side by side for each of the two children.

It also has a guest bedroom for additional sleeping space.

Next to the bathrooms is "the pool house", where the family gathers to play games or just relax. The rear of the pool house opens onto the above ground pool and family terrace.

Next door is Brodey's little house, which has a porch, downstairs living room, and loft bedroom.

Nextly to Brodey's Cottage is Lennox's Cottage.

Lennox does not currently live in her tiny house full time as she is a student, but she does spend time there on the weekends!
In addition to the five small house structures, there is also a super small sixth structure used as office space, as well as a chicken coop, barn, and goat. The family has made the leap from traditional living to their small home community in order to live more sustainably, and it appears they are doing a great job. The family pays $200 a month in utilities and produces virtually no waste due to their "refuse, reduce, reuse, recycle" mantra.

I don't know if I could ever give up my home, but the Brinks family is definitely advocating for a tiny home and a country life! Many thanks to Insider for first covering the Brinks family and their unique lifestyle.
