Going Tiny to Pay Off $125k in Debt

Marek and Ko live in a 200 square foot house and are currently planning to build their own tiny house community in Kansas City, MO. In early 2017, they were ready to tackle their debt but recognized that they needed to downsize their lifestyle and expenses. With a budget cap of $55,000 and over a time period of four months, they downsized from their large downtown apartment to their tiny home. Their home is smartly designed and has lots of custom details like Ko’s large kitchen and taller ceilings to accommodate Marek’s height. Check out their full tour below.

Marek and Ko's kitchen is spacious and large with a full-size oven and range, microwave, lots of counter space, a big sink, and a two-seat breakfast bar with underneath storage. Additionally, the oversized window in the kitchen brings in lots of natural light and nice sightlines.

Their sleeping loft has a king-size bed! The 2nd loft space is designed for storage space and additional hanging clothes.

Their bathroom has a spacious full-size shower, an above mount sink to enable additional storage space in the cabinet below, a stacking washer and dryer, and hanging clothes storage.
