Scott, the owner of a historic restoration company, lays out the benefits of tiny home living.
“My wife and I just finished turning our detached garage into a mother-in-law suite and it really got me thinking about Small and Tiny Houses. Our new guest house is about 400 square feet, and it has inspired me to push forward toward building a Tiny House on wheels for my wife and I. Of course, convincing her might require a little work. So, I’ve been putting together a list of reasons I want a Tiny House. Tell me what you think!”
“Currently we our living in the house full time. It is amazing! I love it so much! I cant believe the difference in my life now. I for one have so much more time. It is so relaxing. I am amazed how great everything has worked out! Nothing has failed. I dont feel so crowed or cramped. I do think I need to downsize more of my clothes.”
A couple of things to consider when noodling over making a tiny house part of your future.
“If you’re pondering building (or buying) a tiny house, it’s likely that you’ve already thought about it a lot. You may have thought about the very things in this post, but for those of you who haven’t, I’m going to highlight 2 major considerations to be as as realistic as possible in determining if a tiny house would work for you.”
Dan Price really defines success story and is an inspiration for many. His home is a tiny hobbit hole he’s built from recycled materials and natural materials from the two acre property he leases for $100 a year.
“When you hear the word Hobbit, immediately you think small, but I didn’t think this small. The Hobbit Hole is a “miniscule place of peace” and they aren’t kidding, this house is a whopping 4 feet tall.”
Tammy and Logan are back in California – but now living on a ranch near Mount Shasta.
“On Tuesday, September 4 we moved from Portland, Oregon to the ranch. My sweet husband, Logan, grew up on a cattle ranch in northern California, about twelve miles east of Yreka. The ranch is nestled in a small valley called Little Shasta and it’s one of my favorite places on the planet because it’s so beautiful.
Originally, we had planned on moving to Chico in a few months. However, we’ve always wanted to live in a rural area and this is the perfect time to give it a try. We’re trying to be open to where life takes us and if we like living on the ranch we’ll stay. For now, we’re going to enjoy the ranch and time with family. Rural living is going to be a really fun adventure!”
Small traveling business in a tiny restored trailer.
“When she lived in London, Kara Rosenlund (see our recent House Call) made frequent sojourns to France in pursuit of vintage treasures and flea market finds. Upon returning to her native Australia, she noticed a gap in the market and decided to fill the void with Travelling Wares. Hitting the road in style, Rosenlund offers up practical, well-curated, vintage items from a restored 1956 Franklin Caravan.”
