Firefighter Goes Super Tiny in Savannah

Firefighter and empty nester, Nicki, wants to simplify her life by downsizing from her 2400 square foot house to a much smaller home - really small. She's looking for a place that's no more than 300 square feet - 1/8th the size of her current home. Since she also wants the freedom to move the house anywhere, she's looking for a portable tiny house on wheels. Working with a budget of $40,000, she's hoping to get a house with architectural interest. A Victorian, Cape Cod or a cottage with a little color would be ideal. Even though she's willing to sacrifice having bedroom by getting a sleeping loft, she still wants a fully equipped kitchen and full bathroom. Another consideration is having enough space for her 6 foot 5 inch boyfriend and fellow firefighter, Tudor, who is helping her on this house hunt. As Nicki looks at homes that range from 96 to 240 square feet, she'll learn about the other challenges of going small.
