Grandparent Getaway: Retired Couple Sets Up Tiny Home to Be Closer to Grandkids

ad 6:

Their new home is much bigger than their old 3,000-square-foot house, which had a lot of stuff in it.

Meet Ty and Bonny. One day, they decided to move into a small but comfy tiny house.

Their two kids are all grown up now and have families of their own.


They have 7 grandkids right now.

Their daughter lives in Kentucky, which is a ten-hour drive away. The son lives just a half-mile away, so if they want to visit, they can use the couple’s RV.

The pre-owned tiny house belongs to Liberation Tiny Homes. It’s in Elizabethtown, Pennsylvania, at the Tiny Estate Village.



They named their house “Journey.”

The couple can relax and enjoy a beautiful view from their house, which overlooks a pond.

Before they bought it, the house was used as a rental and was listed on Airbnb for about two years.



Bonny and Ty are really happy with their decision to have a space that’s 28 by 8 and a half feet.

Now, let’s see what it’s like inside.

The inside has a farmhouse style that they love because it feels like a farm.

They can both relax inside with two chairs in the living area.

Their dining side table is right next to the living area. There’s a bench that can be tucked under the side table, saving space by being attached to the wall.



Ty is good at woodworking.

So, he used his skills to make the bench and other things in the house.

On the other side of the table, there’s a small bar and office combined. On top are drinks, and at the bottom is a printer.



They both love boating.

Because of this, they agreed on how things should look and decided to keep their shoes in bins in the tiny house.

Now, let’s talk about the kitchen and storage. They keep their dresser and extra things in the storage area, which is also part of the stairs going up to the loft above their bedroom.

The kitchen has a lot of storage space, organized to fit all their needs. They also have a small air fryer and a gas burner, just in case they need them.



The bathroom at the end has sliding doors to save space. In there, you’ll find a small sink, a shower, and a toilet.

Don’t forget the sleeping loft! It’s right above the bathroom and kitchen.

In the loft, there’s a nice queen-size bed with handy remote controls for the lights. There are windows on both sides for a nice breeze.

It’s all very charming and lovely.



Eventually, they grew accustomed to its size. Ty was six foot and found it difficult to get used to a loft with low ceilings.

They are now, however, content with the quiet of their tiny home.

In summary, the Tiny Estates allow them to live in a compact area while maintaining a high standard of living.
