In 2017, Tim Davidson was living in his parents' Florida country house when suddenly they told him he had 60 days to move out. No, they didn't kick him out on the street, they only considered him adult enough to live separately. At first the guy thought about buying a traditional house, but after he took a minimalist approach, he realized that a big house would lead to unused space and unnecessary stuff, so he opted for a motorhome. However, a mobile home needed to be parked somewhere, so Tim decided to buy a tiny island for that purpose.
Tim Davidson's parents told him he had 60 days to move out of their Florida country home, where he lived at the time.
First, Tim wanted to buy a traditional home.
But because of his passion for minimalism, he opted for a tiny mobile home.
"I've always been attracted to minimalism, although I didn't realize it. I just had less stuff than the average American, but enough for my lifestyle and be considered a minimalist," Tim said.
Shortly before his parents' deadline, Tim bought a 270 sq ft motorhome. It cost $70,000, and Tim said it had everything he needed.
In the small living room there is a folding table and a sofa, parts of which can be used to sit at the table.
The house has two tiny floors, a bathroom, a living room, and the kitchen.

Having bought the house, Tim started thinking about where to park it.
He ended up deciding to buy a tiny island in Florida for $200,000.
A stylish kitchen is equipped with a gas stove, a kitchen set, and a small sink that can also become part of the countertop.
"It was just a lot that wasn't used in any way and didn't even have an address," Tim said.
Tim contacted the owner of the lot and bought it.
The stairs are used as small drawers.
The other upper floor can only be reached by the stairs on the fridge's side.
The guy feared his motorhome wouldn't hold up in the event of a hurricane.
So he wanted to build another tiny house on the island just with the foundation.
So he built a 323 sq ft octagon-shaped house, which cost him $90,000.
This is what his octagon house looks like from the inside.
Note the sun silhouette on the ceiling. Tim rents out this house via Airbnb to cover his living expenses.
Though small, the house is quite spacious.

The island also features a small house for relaxing and socializing.
A cozy place with a campfire and sun loungers.
Oh, and we almost forgot about the little barn.
Tim and his girlfriend currently live on the island.
The guy didn't want to buy a traditional house because of his commitment to minimalism, and then bought an island on which he parked his mobile home, built a guest house, and a barn. That doesn't sound particularly minimalist, does it?
