As part of the “Tiny Movement,” or the trend of living with less, the Escape model home by Canoe Bay was inspired by its namesake and allows guests to enjoy a stay in the beautiful, minimal designs of about 400 square feet of living space. With fewer distractions and less focus on "stuff," visitors are able to relax and truly reconnect with their surroundings.
It may look like a beautiful cabin, but this tiny home is actually on wheels! Technically, the Escape model home is an RV that can be transported anywhere you need to go, providing you with beauty, simplicity and efficient living, virtually anywhere! With mobility comes the opportunity to roam the country and take in all the stunning, natural sights and destinations that you might never see otherwise.
And while 400 square feet may sound a little tight for some, there is a growing number of people joining the Tiny Movement who believe the smaller the home, the better. After all, do you really need thousands of square feet?
Tiny Homes Save Money, Help the Environment and Then Some
Whether you’re a student struggling with a mountain of debt, are looking to downsize, trying to help the environment or simply have a small housing budget, there are people of all types and demographics who are looking to live smaller and enjoy all the benefits that come with a smaller footprint.
In addition to living literally smaller, people who are joining the movement and living in tiny homes have more streamlined, energy efficient spaces, which helps earn them smaller utility bills, allowing them to save a lot of money in the process. And all that extra money can go toward education, saving for retirement, taking care of kids, paying off loans or even charitable contributions.
As stated on The Tiny Life website, “For most Americans, 1/3 to 1/2 of their income is dedicated to the roof over their heads; this translates to 15 years of working over your lifetime just to pay for it, and because of it, 76% of Americans are living paycheck to paycheck.” A sad but true reality is that our society places a lot of importance on having everything "bigger and better," especially when it comes to your home. But it doesn't have to be that way!
After all, the average American home is around 2,600 square feet, which is a lot to maintain and pay for; the average small or tiny house is between a mere 100-400 square feet. Wouldn't you rather be out enjoying nature or visiting with friends and family rather than wasting valuable time on cleaning and upkeep?
With all that downsizing that comes with "going tiny," there's one benefit that many people believe is the best perk of all: purging everything but the essentials. Eliminating "stuff" = eliminating worries (and making room for more important things)!
Tiny Movement supporters say that getting rid of all of their unnecessary “stuff” has helped them focus less on material objects and more on relationships, experiences and being connected with their environment and those around them.
And that’s where the Canoe Bay Escape tiny homes come in! They believe in all the wonderful benefits of joining the Tiny Movement and have come up with a variety of small model homes that perfectly showcase that living small doesn't mean you have to live without style.
According to the website, the Escape models feature, “all-natural materials with an eco-conscious and energy-efficient design.” As you can see in these photos, these homes are nothing short of stunning!
Living the simple life in your very own tiny home has never been easier or more affordable. From custom finishes and layouts to energy-efficient technology and more, you have the ability to design a tiny home that's unique and beautiful!

"Going Tiny" isn't Just a House Change; it's a Lifestyle Change
Joining the Tiny Home Movement doesn't have to mean you're skimping or giving things up. You're streamlining your way of life, saving money, doing good for the environment and putting more focus on what truly matters: your family, friends and experiences.
