    What I’ve Come to Know from Tiny House Living

    0

    The last few months have been pretty huge for me, friends. Part of that was going smaller – downsizing into my new tiny house Jolene, passing off my old house to my nephew – but there was more at work too, the messy personal stuff […]

    Dee’s Tiny House Road Trip to the Jamboree!

    1

    Why Jonathan Williams is Upsizing into a Tiny House

    0

    I didn’t realize how intimidated and, honestly, downright terrified I feel about owning and moving into a tiny house until Dee asked me to consider what most intimidates me about soon-to-be-tiny-home-ownership, and conversely, what I’m most looking forward to.

    Asking the Big Questions

    1

    Someone once wrote an article about my tiny house that described me as a “Sustainable Barbie,” which threw my friends and I into hysterics. We joked about the accessories that would be come along with a Sustainable Barbie: a pop up tiny house, a teeny, […]

    SUPERHEROES WANTED!

    0

    If you saw an ad that said, “Superhero Wanted,” would you feel qualified to apply? Most of us would say no. And I think that needs to change. YOU can be (and likely already are) a superhero in your own life, simply by the way […]

    How To Visit A Tiny House: Why a guided tour of a tiny house is a vital part of PAD workshops

    0

    While tiny houses are getting more and more coverage in the media, it’s still difficult to find an opportunity to go inside and tour one. This is a shame, because like any space, you’ve got to be inside it to really know what it’s like.  A […]
