tiny is the new big

I fell in love with tiny houses around 2012 or 2013, though it took me a couple of years to figure out exactly what I was looking for — and why. I knew I wanted to be extremely mobile and that I preferred aluminum to knotty pine and shingles. No surprise, then, that my first foray into tiny was a 1965 Avion cabover camper — TRUE micro-living at only 94 square feet! After more than two years of wandering in the Avion, another vintage beauty came my way: a 1978 Silver Streak trailer, 33 feet long — a behemoth in comparison to the Avion!

People sometimes say to me, “Oh, I could never live in something that small.” Sure, there are serious challenges to living tiny, but I’ve also found that a small footprint can translate into a whole lot of freedom and creativity — and some really big adventures….

Here are some of my tips, tricks, and stories from my Really Big Tiny Life. Enjoy! Have some stories of your own? Share in the comments!
