6 tiny homes floor plans for single parents or small families

Single parents have a lot going on. Not only are they raising the next generation to be strong, unique individuals, but they are working, organising, trying to be present in their kid's lives while also living theirs.
Ideally, a single parent would like to cultivate their own life, alongside that of their children. One of the best ways to enable that is a perfectly designed home, suitable for your lifestyle - both how it is and how you want it to be.
