This isn’t really about a tiny house but instead old-fashion simple living. Dick and Bonnie Cain live out in a remote part of West Texas without running water, electricity, or any other modern amenities. They live like folks used to live back in the 1800s and their story is really inspiring.
It’s always exciting and inspiring to find someone else taking the leap into simple living. James and Kristen have begun to build custom designed tiny house on a trailer. Their blog contains many details on their research and the challenges they’ve been facing along the way.
