And then there were three…
Our original, one-of-a-kind Degsy has SOLD!
The Degsy is a unique and contemporary tiny house, and our only model that features a one-level design. Our first design included two bedrooms on either end of the house, and the kitchen, dining area and bathroom in the middle. After showing this design at different events, we discovered that it wasn’t the best we could do. Many of our visitors did not see the need for the two separate bedrooms and felt that it made the space feel even smaller and more compact than what it is. So, after hearing input from our tiny house community and after much consideration, we decided to give the Degsy a complete interior re-design. But before we get into that, here is a snapshot of the new owner of the original Degsy.
Brad is an active duty member of the U.S. Army and has served for 11 years (Thank you!!). Because of this dedication to our country, he typically moves every two to three years. He said “the ability to live in a fully functional home that can be easily moved for a fraction of the cost of a traditional home,” as well as affordability, were the top two reasons why he decided to buy a tiny house. In fact, these two motives frequently top the list of reasons why people decide to go tiny. The idea of not being tied down to a mortgage and being able to move freely when it’s needed or wanted appeals to many in the tiny house community.
Brad plans to use the house for full-time living. His job does require him to travel frequently, however, so when that is the case, he is looking to rent it out to those who are interested in a getaway. When he retires, he wants to use it as a luxury RV for both camping and tailgating at sporting events. Brad stated that he was especially happy about buying the model turn-key and being able to immediately have a comfortable, safe and attractive place to live.
We were very excited to meet Brad and to be a part of his journey to tiny!
And now it’s out with the old and in with the new! We’ve begun building our new Degsy. If you haven’t already, be sure to subscribe to our monthly newsletter and follow us on all of our social media channels (@84TinyLiving) to get updates on the build.
Living tiny may not be for everyone, but if it’s something that you are considering, I invite you to take a tour of the models that we have on display in Eighty Four, PA.
