If you’re new to this blog, welcome! My name is Macy and I am delighted to know others are interested in smaller living. If you’d like to learn more About Us or see the bucket list that started this all feel free to click those links, otherwise feel free to say hi, I would love to know who you are and where you’re from!
I had the idea to ‘go tiny’ in November of 2011, by December I was working on getting my trailer ready. I moved fast, unfortunately construction moved slow :). 18 months after starting my build I moved in, 2 years after starting I officially called my house ‘finished’. I currently ‘live tiny’ full time with my partner (James), my daughter (Hazel) with another kiddo on the way, and our Great Dane (Denver).
This is the site I used to chronicle my tiny house design and construction, because of how blogs work you sort of have to go through it backwards in order to follow the build from the beginning. You can find my very first post HERE, from there you can navigate to the next. There are also search bars on the bottom for searching by date or by topic and a general search bar at the top, if those don’t get you what you want to know I am more than happy to help get you answers! You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org anytime.
If you don’t want to go through 300+ posts you can learn about my ebook or purchase it HERE. It summarizes everything you would want to know about my house build with pictures and explanations (plus some extras), it’s also a great place to start to see all of the choices that go into building your own tiny house.
This site is my personal blog but I also work very hard to provide information to others, I co-host a tiny house podcast which you can find at tinyhousechat.com, I help provide information at PlanningTiny.com and I moderate a great facebook group about tiny houses called Tiny House People. I hope you can find the information you need to explore the right sized living option for you!
