After we completed constructing our tiny home on wheels, we deliberate to hit the street to discover the tiny home motion for our documentary and academic undertaking. But what we found alongside the best way went past a finite undertaking, and have become an enduring, significant way of life full of new associates, lovely landscapes and a refreshed appreciation for dwelling within the second. It has now been over 873 days of semi-nomadic dwelling, throughout 37 states and one Canadian province.
During our go to to the Tiny House Beach Resort, Christian and I’ve now determined it’s time to launch our vlog and share our expertise dwelling tiny as an untraditional but trendy household. Though it’s cliche, we’re house wherever we park our residence on wheels and every time we’re collectively. We are a dedicated single couple who stay and work collectively. My 11-year-old son, lives and travels with us part-time. Three in a 130 sq. foot doesn’t come with out its challenges. Compromise and cooperation are important. Lately, when not on the street, we now have parked in a multi-generational household association. Our close by neighbor is my ex-husband and his siblings. Our parking hosts: Christian’s mother and father. As we found by parking within the driveways and backyards of prolonged household and new buddies, this type of association is the actually the most effective of each worlds. In this case, we will take pleasure in recent cookies and our privateness. Also a super means to assist them with chores.
We spent an eventful winter of their driveway. But a automotive accident briefly turned our world the wrong way up. An unfortuante occasion and intentional way of life has deepened our appreciation for relishing every second and each day spent collectively. Work onerous, play exhausting is our philosphy. We prioritize household and journey time. And you’ll be able to too.
Our ever-rolling adventures proceed, and we need to share it with all of you.
Live, love, journey.
