Tiny Adventures in Housing

By , July 21, 2019

Life just took one of those unexpected but exciting new turns: I bought a tiny home on wheels!

My boyfriend and I have been looking at options for moving in together for a while now, and decided that buying was more cost effective than renting. When he found a tiny home listed for sale on line, advertised as move-in ready, we were hopeful but cautious (see A Tiny Home?). We arranged a visit to the building with the owner/builder and proceeded to speculate wildly about what living in it would be like if it did turn out to be what we wanted. We invited Mom to come with us as someone with more experience buying a house. Her insights and knowledge of where to look for problems was much appreciated.

A Tiny Home?

By , November 8, 2018

According to a survey about Tiny  Homes done by the National Association of Home Builders more than half of Americans would consider living in a home that’s less than 600 square feet. Among Millennials, interest increases to 63%.

The figures are pretty amazing, but what caught my eye was the survey’s definition of a tiny home: less than 600 square feet!

That surprised me, because our cabin is less than 600 square feet.
