Living in Los Angeles is expensive (I know from experience; my journey started there). So when Steven Mejia lost his corporate finance job, he decided to rethink his own family’s finances. After running the numbers, Steven and his wife, Sarahi, decided to build and downsize into a Tiny House – lowering their cost of living – in order to stay in Los Angeles County with the opportunity to start their own business. Flash forward a few years, and the Mejia family is thriving in their beautiful Tiny Home!

Why Would a Family Downsize into a Tiny House?
By downsizing into a Tiny House and working from home, the Mejia’s are able to spend more quality time together as a family. In an interview with the couple, Steven and Sahari commented on how they feel more connected to their young son, and that they didn’t realize how their jobs and “big house” lifestyle was taking away from their family time. It turns out you can gain more than financial freedom by living with less; you may also gain a stronger connection to your children and your spouse!
