St. Louis Woman's Entire House Is Stolen, Because It's a Tiny House

December 18, 2018

There are a lot of plusses to living in a tiny house, like the reduced cost of living and downsizing to a simpler existence. One big drawback? When your house gets robbed, that means your house literally gets robbed.

That's what happened to a woman in St. Louis after her entire tiny house was stolen from a street corner outside a home-remodeling supply store. "I NEED YOUR HELP. Last night between 10:30 p.m. and 11 a.m., the tiny house was stolen...I’m at a loss," Meghan Panu, who runs the @STLTinyLiving Instagram account, wrote this past weekend on social media. "Please, if you see it around the city call and report it/ get in contact with me." Panu, who has spent two years and $20,000 working on the 12-foot-high home, also told KMOV News, "You hear about stolen cars, trailer all the time, but this is a stolen house...I just want it back."

SO The tiny house was spotted earlier this evening westbound on I40 towards California. It’s been a hectic few days, but we’re getting this house back one way or another. Thanks for the love.
