John and Fin Kernohan
United Tiny House Association and Beloved Cabin Tiny House Homestead & Stay Middle-Georgia https://www.unitedtinyhouse.com/about/
Meet “The Kernohans”… John and Fin… the Tiny House & Minimalist Dynamic Duo! John and Fin Kernohan are the Founders of the United Tiny House Association (UTHA), which is arguably the largest tiny lifestyle support organizations in the World with over 67K+ members. They have also organized the 28 highly-successful For-Charity Tiny House Festivals, including what are on record as the World’s six largest tiny house festivals. (They even received a message of acknowledgement from the Guinness Book of World Records for their Florida Tiny House Festival.)
John and Fin are true examples of the minimalist and tiny house lifestyle by living the past 11+ years in their DIY, off-grid 304sqft tiny home, known as Beloved Cabin, and reside on their 16-acre homestead in Middle-Georgia. (Before this, they realized their love for small space living when spending time traversing the canals throughout countryside of the United Kingdom aboard their narrow boat.)
John and Fin, their 16-acre homestead, and many of their unique tiny homes and small spaces have been featured on numerous television programs, networks and news outlets such as A&E’s Living Smaller” (2022), HGTV’s “Tiny House, Big Living” (2017), GAC, JEOPARDY!, Apartment Therapy, Hobby Farms, The Rachael Ray Show, TODAY.com, DIY Network, Apple+, AOL’s “Dream Big, Living Small”, and many others.
In addition to their DIY-built, off-grid 304sqft ‘Beloved Cabin’ and their 148sqft towable ‘Tiny Firehouse – Station No. 9’, John and Fin also have built and own two additional tiny houses on wheels, two yurts, two 20’ geodesic dome homes, three 16’ bell tents, a skoolie, and are currently building a tree house with a salvaged grain silo, and another small cabin, all as part of their 16-acre homestead.
