Tiny Houses are a big thing in the city of St Pete, but technically it’s not legal to build one. You have to get special approval from the city, and even that’s not a certainty. But Jaleesa and Joni are two women determined to build their own tiny house and live small and more self sufficiently in the city. Tiny houses offer a low cost home for people without the burden of a huge mortgage, which can make a big difference in the lives of two single mothers. They gave me a little tour of their land and showed me the design an architect has drawn up for them.
You can help them raise funds to make their tiny house a reality by visiting their facebook page and contacting them to contribute.
