Guide to Tiny House Living

If you’ve been thinking about the possibility of living in a Tiny House but aren’t sure: 

  • If it’s right for you

  • Where to start your research 

  • If you can fit all your belongings in it 

  • Where your utilities will come from 

  • Where you will put it 

  • If your family will fit 

  • If you should build it or buy it pre-made

If you’re currently dreaming of owning your own home, but:

  • Don’t want to be in debt for decades

  • Want to find a way to live more sustainably

  • Aren’t sure if Tiny House Living is right for you

But you want to be able to own a home you LOVE sooner than you could with a traditional mortgage…​

You need to think about Tiny House Living! 

It’s easier than you think!

I know you might be thinking:

  • Will all my stuff even FIT in a Tiny House?

  • Is this transition too big for me?

  • Where would I even put a Tiny House?

  • Will I be living without electricity and water?

  • Where do I even begin researching?

  • Do I have to go to the bathroom outside??

Wouldn’t it be amazing if you could have the information you need to decide if Tiny Living is right for you broken down into simple sections…

And someone to walk you through it who has not only built their own Tiny House, but lived in it for several years, and even added a baby to the mix in only 360 square feet of space?!


Now you can!


I’ve documented our family’s entire process over the past few years and now I’m sharing it with you!

Living in a Tiny House has allowed my family to own our own home and live life on our OWN terms! It’s given us so much freedom to focus on the things that really matter to us, like spending more time with our community and living more sustainably, and I know it can do the same for you! 

Instead of saving up for a down payment for YEARS for a home mortgage that would take decades to pay off, we built our own home in just two years! ​

And you know what?


It hasn’t stopped us from doing the things we love or filling our home with friends…


When we made the choice to “downsize” our idea of what home ownership should look like, we actually gained more than we thought possible! We’ve been able to create the lifestyle we wanted without having to wait years or spending 100’s of thousands to do it. 

Myth #1

"I won’t be able to fit all my stuff in such a small space"

Truth: Yes, you will! You will probably need to prioritize and downsize a bit, but that’s not a bad thing and it doesn’t have to be unbearable. Chances are you there are many things you own that you haven’t seen or used in years  (I know I did!). This is a great opportunity to declutter and to only bring things with you that bring you joy. Practicality and efficiency are key in a smaller space, but you will still be able to create beautiful spaces in your Tiny Home. So, YES, you can still shop at Target!
