We finally made it to our last stop - The National Tiny House & Simple Living Jamboree. It was worth the extra few days and miles to make it to Arlington, TX so we could learn about Tiny House living. Our goal is to have a Tiny House Studio so we can further incorporate our experiences into our art when we travel.
We learned about framing, layouts, towing and composting toilets. We toured over 30 homes, and got a good feel for the feasibility of tiny living. It was great to be able to be in a variety of homes to understand the trade-offs. It seems best to invest in well appointed kitchen and bath, but sleeping quarters can be kept to a basic minimum.
More and more people seem to be coming to the same conclusion - bigger isn't necessarily better. Maybe the American Dream isn't in the size of the home, but in the freedom owning your own home can provide. Why live under a $300,000 mortgage when $45,000 will provide all you need? Let us know what you think?
