Big Future Life Decision To Be Tiny

Recently my husband and I came across a documentary on the Tiny Home movement. We are now hooked. 

If you are not familiar, it's homes that are small. Real small. Like, usually under 300 SF small. Many are on wheels. So, it's like a combination between a cottage and camper. And it's the ones on wheels that we are interested in. No permits to buy and the only rules to follow are road rules for towing. Working lights on the back, under the required towing weight rated for your vehicle and under 13.5 feet tall. 



We now have a 10-year plan. We have a decade and a bit before our daughter finishes school to purge and use up our excess 'stuff', to enjoy our furry family (2 out of 3 furries and all feathered will be gone in that 10-year span) to focus on our daughter, build a tiny home and find and buy land, while reducing debt to enable us to buy said land. 

This is a retirement plan, a minimalist plan, a plan to get back to nature and really figure out what our true passions are. Which brings me to my question and next blog post....what will we DO when we are living in our tiny home on forested land, all alone??

  1. I agree, the Tiny House movement is certainly taking off. I think it's a great idea, and you will be very happy!
