“I guess boats were the first tiny houses”, our onboard-guest came to the same conclusions as we did when we bought Kahu some months ago. Ever since we moved to the 8 meter we call home, we are referring to our Raven26 as a tiny house. Not a far-fetched referral, at least size wise: Even though there is no set definition as to what constitutes a tiny house, a structure under 500 square feet (46 m2) is generally accepted to be a tiny home. Our sailing vessel fits right in there.
But Kahu is not just an ordinary tiny house.
“Whenever people say `wow, that is a small space!`, we tell them `yes, the house is small but the backyard is AMAZING!´”, I could not have said it better than my friend Jen from Hawaii. Our big blue backyard is truly mindblowing and I wouldn´t change it for a million Dollars.
Our vast playground is not the only reason though, why we made this choice in the first place. A choice, we haven´t regretted until now.
