Hello. I am a minimalist and tiny house enthusiast, no surprise. I first discovered the tiny house movement four years ago. I see living in a tiny home and being debt free, ultimately, as a necessity to life in the United States–for me definitely. After spending the first part of my life raising my daughters as a single parent, I do not have a retirement plan. Building and living in a tiny home is an excellent retirement plan for anyone: it is an excellent way to gain better financial freedom and to better enjoy life–long before retirement.
How did I come to this?
Recently I was in college working on a teaching degree. However, as I re-thought debt I was accumulating and after the economic collapse and subsequent political policy attacks on federal workers, teachers, I decided my teaching plan was no longer viable. So, I dropped out of the four-year college I was attending and went back into an old vocation, driving a truck which has great job security and offers excellent pay with the right company–this, my $$ path to building my tiny container home on wheels. Once in my tiny home, I’m going to rethink a career, spend more time being environmentally conscious, and also focus more on simply living.
I decided to create this blog in order to chronicle my journey; but more importantly, as an informative, learning tool for others. I love to teach!! I have been researching tiny houses since 2011 and I have accumulated a wealth of helpful information that I really want to share. I also have some great ideas about tiny house design. Lastly, as a truck driver currently, I feel I have some great insights into hauling things–I want to share these too. Please join me while I learn how to develop my blog and as I post my thoughts on everything tiny house. Peace.
