Vegans Can Be Funny Too

Vegans Can Be Funny Too… no really… and if you can believe it… sarcastic. I love these two van-lifers – never miss an episode. They are on a mission to explore strange new worlds and be funny. You’ve got to subscribe to The Nomadic Movement on YouTube. It will make your regular… errr… normal… err… […]

Simply Living – Build It for $10,000-$12,000 in Materials

What we came up with is a 20 foot house that can be fully completed for only $10,000-12,000 with all new materials even less with reclaimed materials… For a limited time, we are offering the plan package PDF download for whatever amount of money you decide and what you think they are worth. And we are […]

Life Could Be This Easy

Life could be this easy. Life could be this simple. If we were to let it be. And for those who live this ‘have tiny house will travel’ attitude to life, they will no doubt have a much more stress free, healthier and happier life than those with bonds that tie.” – The Flying Tortoise via […]

Trainer Tiny House Has a New Home

As of Friday, we have officially parked the tiny house! …We love the little ranch we moved the house to. We need to do landscaping but it’s beautiful.” – TRAINER TINY HOUSE  

Interior Shots Update of Tiny House Ontario

I had an MPAC person stop by my project, Tiny House Ontario a few days ago.  If you don’t know, these are the tax assessors that ensure that the people of Ontario pay their fair share of taxes. I am not opposed to paying my fair share of tax, what I oppose is the way that […]

Metal Sheathing

The windows and roofing will be arriving this week. It’s a little later than we were expecting but in the meantime our metal sheathing is being installed. We decided not to do traditional sheathing but we needed to have the metal sheathing installed over the house-wrap in key areas of the house to prevent racking […]

Living Off the Grid, Solar Power and the Simple Life

Living Tiny as a Way to Follow Your Dreams

For 15 years I worked in a career that I was good at but wasn’t feeding my spirit. I knew I needed to make a change but I felt stuck in a rut of increasing expenses. What I didn’t realize for a long time was that my desire to live in a conventional home was the […]

Solar Shingles

The Glorification of Busy-ness and Having Too Much Time on Our Hands

This past week I was at a small camping festival in rural Minnesota. The event featured several speakers throughout the week, including myself. I did two workshops. One was on beer and one was on tiny houses, two of my favorite subjects. In my tiny house workshop I mentioned my problem with the way our […]
