Peter Downsized for a Debt Free Tiny Retirement

Peter Matheson lives in a tiny house on wheels in Grand Forks, British Columbia. It’s an incredibly small home – only 120 square feet – but has all the essentials for living full time.

While volunteering at a cold weather shelter in Grand Forks, he was asked to help design spaces for the homeless.

He had never lived in a tiny house on wheels, so to inform the design he built the house as a prototype so he could experience living tiny. He was hooked.

Peter is now collaborating with the city of Grand Forks on a tiny house community, which if successful may be the first of its kind in Canada.

Now imagine a debt free tiny retirement like this for yourself, where you can spend your time as you see fit. To help imagine what a 120 square foot house looks like check out our new book, 101 Tiny House Designs.
