A Tiny Dream

Welcome to our latest adventure! This page will be a window into our tiny house project, and I hope you will follow us along every step of the way.

I’ve been attracted to the idea of living in a tiny home ever since I came across Jay Shafer and his Tumbleweed business in 2011. It’s my belief that the only thing getting in the way of your dreams, is yourself. One of our dreams has always been to design and build our own home. Even with two incomes, it’s been tough saving money living in such an expensive area (Washington, D.C.). Not to mention the pile of bills we pay each month. The first solution was moving to a more rural area in Maryland, which is much cheaper (and way friendlier). Our second solution? Start to build a tiny home with what little savings we do have, live in it once built, and save enough over the next few years so that we can pay off all our debt. Ultimately saving enough to buy/build our dream home.

The first step? Buying a set of plans from the Tumbleweed website. We decided on the Fencl, a cozy 130 sq ft home, built on a trailer. You can find them here.

As with the food portion of my blog, I hope you find inspiration from this journey. My quest to live a simpler lifestyle has just begun. And like my plant-based journey, there are bound to be some hilarious (and not so hilarious) bumps along the way!

Dream big,
