When it comes to Tiny home features you must have certainly come across an image of Miss Dolly’s gorgeous Tiny home. Miss Dolly on Wheels is the owner of this unique and super cozy tiny home on wheels, which she refers to as her ‘dollhouse on wheels.
Dolly Rubiano enlisted the help of Eco Tiny Homes to help bring her vision to life. Her Tiny Home has two lofted bedrooms, a kitchen, full bathroom, and even a walk-in closet! The fact that her home is on wheels means that she gets to be a true globe trotter and truly embrace outdoor living.
You just need to look at the images of her beautiful Tiny Home on Wheels and you cannot help but be inspired. Dolly moved from New Zealand to Australia in search of the perfect Tiny House and she has certainly managed to bring her vision to fruition. Her Tiny House is all about living a simple, sustainable, and affordable lifestyle. It’s a true vote of confidence for anyone looking to leap into the Tiny House Movement.
Dolly Rubiano has truly inspired many to follow in her footsteps. She knew that she wanted to live a minimalistic lifestyle and she went for it. Living minimalistically means embracing life with less stuff and more experiences. And that is exactly what Dolly has done.
By removing the clutter in our lives, we can focus on what truly matters; our relationships, health, experiences, and passions. If you want to venture further into this subject I highly recommend reading Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less by Greg McKeown. This book dives deeper into how we can live a more minimalist lifestyle.
Rubiano drew inspiration from many tiny houses on the Internet and even rented on Airbnb, (a great idea to get a feel of living Tiny). She proceeded to design a cardboard model so that her designer knew exactly what she wanted. With a bit of research, she found her perfect Tiny House builder (Designer Eco Tiny Homes) and the rest is history.
All in all her dream of living in a tiny home and being mortgage-free was achieved for $65000. It’s extremely admirable to see that she had a budget in mind and stuck with it. Because going tiny can mean some drastic changes it’s important to be involved in every aspect of the build as Miss Dolly was.
Dolly’s Tiny House is just 7 meters long and 2.4 meters wide and is made from sustainable materials. When people think of living in a van this size, they often imagine a cramped and uncomfortable experience. However, Miss Dolly has proved that this doesn’t have to be the case.
What makes Miss Dolly’s Tiny Home so special are all of the personal touches she has added to make it her own.
When you decide to go Tiny, downsizing becomes inevitable which is why Dolly was really smart on storage. She makes smart choices like making the use of floating shelves and hanging pot racks. Her choice of wide windows and french doors means that a lot of light enters her home, this helps create a feeling of openness and more space. I especially love that she incorporates a lot of plant life without making her living space feel cramped.
Almost every part of her Tiny Home is DYI, which makes it even more impressive! It just goes to show that with a little bit of creativity, you can turn any space into a beautiful and homey living area. From the beautiful hardwood floors to the custom-made furniture, every inch of this home is a reflection of her unique style. You cannot help but smile when looking through all her photos of her beautiful Tiny Home.
Living in a Tiny House allows one to have a smaller ecological footprint, save money, and have more time. Miss Dolly’s Tiny Home is also completely self-sufficient. This means that Dolly has to be very resourceful when it comes to living sustainably. The Tiny House is off-grid meaning that it is not connected to mains water, electricity, or sewerage. She has installed solar panels on the roof to power all of her appliances and lights. Because she knows that water is one of the most important resources, she has also included a rainwater catchment system. This allows her to collect and store water for use in case of an emergency. She uses a composting toilet system, which means that there is no need for a septic tank or connection to a sewerage system.
Overall, Dolly Rubiano’s Tiny Home is a beautiful and unique space that demonstrates how creative you can be when downsizing. It also shows us that it is possible to live sustainably and comfortably in a Tiny House. We hope that her story will inspire others to pursue their own Tiny House dreams!
