The Beers is a family of five living in a tiny house on a historic homestead. Finding their dream property in northern Arizona took some trial and error. For them, all the time and energy spent was well worth it to achieve a slowing living lifestyle. Several years ago, Justin and Rachel worked long hours in corporate America in bustling Phoenix. Quality time with their kids felt all too rare. Ultimately, their dissatisfaction with the status quo led them to sell their large house and move into an Airstream.

“What pushed us to do that too was my mom passed away in 2017. She’d only been retired for about ten years and really put into perspective how short life was. So, I just knew time was fleeting and wanted to make sure to live life and be with my family because I didn’t see them very much. My heart was drawing me to be closer to them.

We decided to sell 90% of our belongings, live simply and just more experiences over stuff, and be together.

I’m so happy we did. We definitely our hurdles and bumps along the way.

As soon as we stepped on this land, it felt like home. I knew that our journey had drawn us here.”

Family of 5 in Tiny House on Homestead Tour

The Beers family worked closely with Uncharted Tiny Homes to design and build three tiny home rentals, all located on their homestead as part of the Hummingbird Tiny Home Inn. From this experience, they fine-tuned a design that would work best for their family of five. In the end, they went with a 34-foot long by 10-foot wide house on wheels with two one-foot pop-outs for the living room and private downstairs bedroom. Their three children each have their own room in the spacious loft. They also enjoy an upstairs play space for toys and gaming. Of course, for more room to play, the kids play and explore outside. Additionally, the Beers family’s 20-acre homestead came with a historic small cabin, which is now a playroom—a Lego building paradise.
