Our Tiny House


In 2007, my husband Logan and I fell in love with micro-homes and began saving for a tiny house on wheels. In 2010, we hired Portland Alternative Dwellings to build and design our tiny house and we moved into the space on October 23, 2011. We lived in our tiny house full-time until October 2014. During the winter of 2014/2015, we rented a small cottage in town. In April 2015, we moved back to the tiny house.

Living in our tiny house has been a wonderful adventure and I’m happy we bought our wee abode. I don’t know if we will live in the space forever because life is uncertain and it is never static. After my dad’s illness and death in 2012, I realized living small and simply isn’t about the size of my house or whether I can tow it down the highway. It’s about making mindful choices that give me freedom, flexibility, and the opportunity to spend time with loved ones.

Regardless of how my life will change in the future, I will continue to experiment with simplicity. I’ve learned that there are many ways to live simply and happily, even without a tiny house on wheels.
