Living Large In A Tiny Home

American Innovation!  Give us lemons and we will make lemon-aid with a Tiny Home.

Another option for full time RV’ers or any one that wants to down size. There’s a movement in tiny homes on wheels sweeping the nation. The real estate collapse, the economic downturn, burning out on 12-hour workdays – many people are rethinking their ideas about shelter – seeking an alternative to high rents, or a lifelong mortgage debt to a bank on an overpriced home. Many people have lost their homes and living with family members. Americans are fed up and doing something about it.

There are over 150 builders who have taken building homes to another level, creating tiny homes (under 500 sq. ft.). Homes on land, homes on wheels, homes on the road. There are over a thousand photos, showing a rich variety of small homemade shelters, and there are stories (and thoughts and inspirations) of the owner-builders who are on the forefront of this new trend in downsizing and self-sufficiency. Some are living utility free with solar power and well water. I believe it is the only way to live. I am very excited about these Tiny Homes.

Many people have decided to scale back, to get by with less stuff, to live in smaller homes. You can buy a ready-made tiny home, build your own, get a kit or pre-fab, or live in other movable shelters such as RV’s. There are numerous blogs and websites with news, photos, and plans for tiny homes. If you are thinking of scaling back here’s a different approach, a 180º turn from increasing consumption. there are builders, designers, architects (no less), dreamers, artists, road gypsies, and water dwellers who’ve achieved a measure of freedom and independence by taking shelter into their own hands.

    Great post. I enjoyed seeing the trend. I lived in a 18 foot travel trailer for two years while in High School. It was me my sister and mom and dad. honestly I did not mind it. However, I wish we would have taken it places and saw some sights. However, this was out house while my father was building our house on our land.

  6. Thank you for visiting my blog

  7. Barbara, this is a cool thing? I’ve never seen or heard of this before – thanks for doing a post on it. It makes sense. The insides of some of these tiny homes are nicer than the full sized home I’m paying a mortgage on for the rest of forever! Cool post!


    • Thank you for your comment! I feel for you and anyone with a lifetime mortgage. I wished there was a bailout for the American people. The Tiny home is certainly an alternative for some. Good luck!

  8. Your home is absolutely GORGEOUS! I am so happy to read your site and would love to share your blog with others. I completely agree with everything you say and certainly love the idea of alternatives to high cost housing. Your place is Beautiful and I am sure many others just as myself would love to hear it from someone doing it. Thanks so much for sharing we all appreciate you and your wisdom. Have a wonderful day and weekend!

    Wishing you Great LOVE, HEALTH & ABUNDANT HAPPINESS Today & Always!


    • Thank you so much! You sound like a very positive person and thank you for your awesomeness. Some folks are really not aware of what is going on in America. I talk to people everyday that are losing their home and it is very sad, but we do have alternatives to being homeless. Thanks for stopping by!

  9. Amazing! I love it!! Great post Barbara!

    thanks for following my site – Camp Chickadee – Nurture Your Nature. We obviously share a love or the outdoors. I love forward to exploring your blog, and ‘liked’ the small house video. I’ve lived in some small houses – and those were the salad years. Some of the happiest with my husband. Way to get to know someone, HA! Thanks – Lisa

    This is really interesting! I haven’t heard of this before. Thanks for stopping by my site as well!

  12. I would love to be able to travel & just live in a “house on wheels”….for a while. I’m sure it would get old after a while. But that’s one of my dreams to be able to travel the U.S. & this is the way to do, I think.
    Also, thanks for checking out my blog! 🙂

  13. excellent thing is that…….tents are more versatile for my needs though……

    • I still love tent camping and yes they are.

      • greatgodpan said:

        i own five tents of various sizes and quality and use them according to the length and number of people on my camp out…i guess you couls say im a tent fan……..our dream however is to buy a landrover and spend 6 months or so travelling round southern africa…according to no particular plan……..personally i think we need longer as i could easily spend 6 months in the drakensberg alone……..silence and isolation are my loves so we rough it alot but are expert campers and lack little luxury……….south africa is rally a super beautiful place and we get out when ever we can…..but this work thing just prevents us really doing what we want………enjoy.

      • I can appreciate your concerns. have you heard about workampers? Google it. It sounds like a great dream don’t give up on it. Thanks for stopping by.

  16. Hi Barbara, Thanks for stopping by my blog. So glad you found me as your site is VERY interesting! My husband and I sold almost everything we owned last year and spent 6 months traveling in S. America. I am so on board with less consumption – it’s such a freeing event to get rid of all the stuff that weighs you down. The Tiny Home is so interesting and a bit compelling too. Look forward to reading more on your site.
