Where I Live


This is the amazing area where having a tiny house allows me to live. Without Fy Nyth, the cost of housing would probably prevent my living here at all. I feel very fortunate to get to spend all my time in the middle of such stunning scenery. All photos are mine, and were taken with in about a two hour radius of my home. Plus or minus a few days worth of hiking. enjoy!

    1. That just depends on what you want. If you like things like living tiny and have no debt, I'm sure you could do it too!

  3. Do you own the land you live on or do you rent? How do you get your water?

    ReplyDelete
  4. Water - See this post. http://fynyth.blogspot.com/2015/01/off-grid-water-in-my-tiny-house.html

    Land - I barter cooking and ranch work in exchange for parking on a friend's property.

  6. What size truck do you have to pull your house?

    1. I don't own anything that can pull my house. I drive an Astro van and while it can tow, it's not up to this much weight. If I move I will need to buy, borrow, or rent a 1 ton (probably diesel) pickup. My house is just over 10,000 lbs. dry. I don't know how much it weighs with all my belongings inside.

    3. Hello Ariel,

      Your photos are amazingly beautiful. Thank you for sharing them on you wonderful blog.

      I tried checking on being able to buy them on the link to Zenfolio.com but it appears the site is no longer available. Are you selling your work elsewhere?

      Thank you,
      Lily

    4. Lily,

      Yes, I actually switched sites due to not getting enough value for the price from Zenfolio. I now have my own photography site ArielCelestePhotography.blogspot.com which is still a work in progress. But I'm also happy to work out a sale of a print or canvas of any particular one you are interested in! Feel free to comment here or email me.

  8. These photos are breathtaking. My husband and I are considering moving into a tiny home. I am curious about how you know where you can park your tiny home. Have you purchased the land you currently reside on, or do you rent it (sorry if this is too personal, I just want to make sure we know what we're getting ourselves into)? Another serious question of mine is (and anyone can answer)- my father is a woodworker who lives on the opposite side of the country. He made us most of the furniture in our home. There are two pieces in particular that I'm very hesitant to part with- they have a lot of sentimentality tied to them. For example, one is our four-poster bed. It was made by my dad's two hands, as a wedding gift to my husband and I. How do I incorporate that into our tiny house or get rid of it? I've really been struggling to come up with a solution to this. Anyone have any thoughts?

    1. No problem. The rules for parking one vary all over the country due to different rules in differing town, counties, cities, etc. Most places they seem to be in a but of a grey area. I don't think my parking is really legal since living in an RV in not legal here. But I'm tucked into a very secluded area, on private property, quiet and tidy, and have not had a problem yet. I trade work and cooking to the owners of the ground in exchange for parking here.

      As far as sentimental items in general, if they are really important to you you can probably fit them in. Depending on how large that bed is though, it may have to be more important to you than a lot of other things. You could probably do a bedroom setup on one end with a somewhat raised level for the bed and then a closet or other storage underneath to give you a high enough clearance for your bed. Something like one of the links below, though again, I don't know how large your bed actually is.

    2. Thanks so much for all of your info! We figured out that we can kind of dis-assemble the bed and use the posters in some other way in the tiny house so that we keep the entire bed and still use the frame (it's small enough for a loft) while repurposing the posters. Makes me even more excited about the prospect of building a tiny home! Again, thank you for all of your help.

    3. I just saw a tinyhouse set up where the bedroom & kitchen were downstairs. The "living room" was in the loft. It was a really neat "outside-the-box" layout. I'm sorry I don't have the link, but that may be a consideration for your bed.

    4. Brenna,

      I plan to find house plans for just that. My bedroom downstairs, near the bathroom, and the kitchen, and living area, on the other side of the bathroom. When you get old, and disabled..that is floor plan you need.

    5. Hey Brenna, take a look at this tiny house it is very suitable for a older person/ couple. I mention this as i have physical limitations myself.

  9. This might sound like a silly question, but I see photo's of bears and a wolf.....what do you do when you encounter them?? Your photo's are absolutely lovely my heart goes out to you, you are very fortunate to have found such a beautiful place to park your home. Thanks for sharing all the information it will help me when I get ready to build my tiny home.

    1. Not a silly question at all. I just keep my distance as much as possible (some photos look close, but I have a big camera with a big zoom), try to never surprise one, and never get between a mother and babies. When camping I keep all food and anything that smells like food high in a tree overnight. And if we accidentally end up closer to each other than either of us wanted, just back away slowly, don't run. In general, as long as you are being respectful of the fact that they are a wild animal and quite powerful, they have a natural fear of humans and will go the other way too if they can.

      And you are welcome. Good luck with your build!

    2. Do you own a gun? Long gun? Pistol? Do you ever feel the need to use one? I know Wyoming is a Liberty State.

      Delete
    3. I do. I've never had to use it, and also have bear spray handy as my first resort, but it is there if I need it. I never have felt even close to needing it so far though.

  12. House looks really nice. I, too, have a modified cypress in northwest Wyoming that I use as a guest cabin because our home already is pretty tiny.

    1. I live in the Jackson Hole area. Most people here are in the service/tourism industry. A lot of the rest of the state is in mining.

  15. These are wonderful photos!!! What a beautiful area you live in!!
    I think also you could sell these photos as posters. I would love to buy one! Let me know if you ever do that! You are an inspiration too. I am so loving this tiny-house idea. I would have to rent a storage unit for all my "stuff"!

  19. Would you ever consider selling some of your photographs. They are stunningly beautiful. I am very sincere in my interest. Also am looking into the tiny house lifestyle. In fact I just sent off for a quote along with my requests and am waiting for a price quote. I also live in Wyoming, I don't think I could live anywhere else! Thank you for all the pointers on the fireplace and the ideas regarding the cold and tiny homes. Most places do not get as cold as we get here so they are much appreciated. I definitely will be using them when the time comes.

    1. Selling photos is something I've thought about but never gotten into. Is there a particular one you are interested in?

      And I'm glad you are finding my blog helpful. That's always my hope when I write. Best wishes as you work out your own tiny house dream!

  20. As others have stated, your photos are absolutely, incredibly stunning. Wow! I can see why you wouldn't want to live anywhere else.

    BTW, I'm here because you replied to a comment I had posted on Tiny House Talk on FB. So thank you for your blog link! I've been looking at a lot of tiny and small home designs for the past couple of years, as I'm looking for realistic and affordable housing options -- I very much want detached housing that, while isn't isolated, is removed from an urban environment and that gives me space and breathing room, peace and quiet. All the best you!
