Welcome and thanks for visiting.
Here you'll find some info on my latest project, building my own tiny house.
|"Giant" 950 Sq Ft House|
To start out, here are some pics of the house I just sold and moved out of. I lived there for 5 years, and poured tons of money, time, and energy into it. A good learning experience I suppose. Now it is empty. I spent months downsizing and getting rid of "stuff." That actually was happening before I even knew that tiny houses existed.
I found myself going through everything I owned and thinking, "do I really need this anymore?" "When is the last time I used this?" "wow I really spent money on all this stuff that I never use?"... Reducing the stuff in my home felt great! Soon my house really looked empty. I was only using about a third of the space.

|Empty (Remodeled) Bathroom|
So that was it. I started planning. I reduced so much that everything I own fits in half of a 10'x10' storage unit. 80% of that can go also, after I have the time to sort through it again.
Now I've sold my house, quit my job, and bought some of the materials. Next week I'm moving to Colorado to build full time for a few months.
I have no idea what this blog might turn into, but I'll do my best to keep everyone posted on the planning, progress, and stumbling blocks that are bound to happen along the way.
