Tiny House Experience:
website: Tiny House on the Prairie
I’m Kristie Wolfe I built my first 97 sq ft tiny house on wheels in Boise, Idaho a few years ago out of reclaimed materials as an experiment in minimalism. I decided to make it a permanent living situation a year later and bought a piece of land and converted my house off grid and added another 100 sq ft doubling it’s size! Last winter I built my second tiny house a la tree house on the big island of Hawaii that I’m renting out as a vacation house when my friends and family aren’t enjoying it.
When I’m not building I travel around the United States with a 6 ton potato truck as a spokesperson for the Idaho Potato Commission. I also love spending time in the outdoors with my pup Roxy, I read an absurd amount of books and I sew dresses.
