This Family Built A Tiny Private Village Where Every Kid Has Their Own Home And Revealed How They Look On The Inside

Published 2 months ago

Many teenagers want to move out of our parents’ homes as quickly as possible – they want to be able to bring friends whenever they like, have their own privacy and leave dirty clothes on the floor for however long they want. Knowing this, the Brink family came up with a clever solution – they built separate tiny homes for each of their children and a spacious cabin for themselves, forming a tiny private family village. There are currently a total of 6 little homes on the family’s property but mom Keli Brink said the initial plan was a whole lot different. In an interview with Insider, the woman said her husband wanted all of them to live in a single cabin but she wanted them to have their privacy. And so the idea for separate little cabins was born.

In an interview with Bored Panda, Stephanie McQueen, the content manager of the Tiny House Community resource center, said that one of the pros of living in a tiny house is the benefits of the environment – she says that people living in tiny homes tend to spend more time outdoors. “This naturally increases overall health and happiness when you’re in nature and absorbing vitamin D on a regular basis,” said the woman. However, she pointed out that there are some cons too, like the lack of indoor entertainment space. “Having family or friends over for holidays or dinner parties probably aren’t the most comfortable, especially if you live in climates where outdoor entertainment is not a viable option during the winter months. While we’re all still working on local zoning laws with our governments, tiny houses are still a gray area and some cities refuse to allow them,” added Stephanie.

Stephanie said that tiny houses are a great way to reduce your carbon footprint and improve your health. “While it is a very eco-friendly way to live compared to a standard house, it also offers huge benefits in other aspects as well. Many houses use a fraction of energy compared to average homes, plus many are setup for solar power.”

“Taking the plunge into tiny living isn’t for everyone,” warned Stephanie. “If you’re considering it, start by working on your current home. A tiny lifestyle can be achieved by anyone, no matter the size of your house. Get rid of excess things, reduce the amount of space you use in your house, learn to be intentional when shopping, and start the mindset shift. It may sound complicated, but it’s really not. If tiny living is for you, these transitions will be smooth and logical.”

“It seems much worse than it is. I just put a coat on if it’s cold or raining. I’ll just bundle up and run over there,” said Lennox about using the outside bathroom

The family even has a private barn and farm animals

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!
