Effingham, Ill. (Casey) – – In a small town known for its 8 Guinness World Record World’s Largest attractions, it makes perfect sense that the first tiny home designed to grow big would be built there, too.
Troy Bolin, Acquisitions Director and co-owner of Bolin Enterprises, Inc, started thinking about a tiny home design a couple of years ago.
It wasn’t until his middle daughter, Molly, signed up for HGTV’s Tiny Home Big Living, that his idea would become a reality.
The design of making a tiny home grow big, wasn’t based upon the fact that it had never been done before.
The design was incorporated to enable Molly to live independently after being diagnosed with epilepsy.
With a budget of $30,000 and a 12-week deadline, Bolin drew up the blueprints and created his dream team to get the project done.
First up was Troy Higgs, owner of Higgs Welding located in Dieterich, another small growing community in Central Illinois.
“Troy went above and beyond throughout this entire process, even donating his time,” stated Troy Bolin.
“Without his ingenuity to be able to read my blueprint design and trouble-shoot ideas back and forth, this tiny home probably would not have happened.”
Molly Bolin jumped in with lots of personal and unique details that she envisioned, even a retro pink Big Chill fridge.
However, Troy Bolin praises his wife, Laura for all the interior decorating from choosing colors to installing flooring.
The episode titled, Not So Tiny House, aired for the first time on February 8, 2018. Subsequent airings are scheduled and can be found on the HGTV’s website.
The tiny home will be moved to Nashville, Tennessee later this Spring. However, the tiny home will be set up during the Bolin Transport and BEI Automotive Repair’s 10th Annual Customer Appreciation
Pancake Breakfast in Casey on February 24, 2018 from 7:30am to 10:00am CST.
