We love to watch tv shows and videos about tiny houses to get ideas for ours. We’ve seen a lot of interesting videos, but one stands out so far as our very favorite.
Why we love this tiny house…
In January 2018 we finally made a decision to actually BUY a motorhome and get started on the building of our tiny house. This was a big decision to make because we were now committing to actually do the project.
We had no previous experience with motorhomes, so the first thing we needed to do was just find out about them. To begin learning what was available, we went to Fairfield, California because they have many motorhome dealers there by the side of the highway and we would be able to see many different types of motor homes.
When exploring the building of a tiny house, the first decision you need to make is whether you want the tiny house to be stationary or mobile.
A stationary tiny house is so small that it would be easy to move to a new location if you were moving it to another stationary spot.
But many people who build tiny houses want to be mobile so they can live wherever they choose. Indeed many mobile tiny houses are moved from location to location fairly regularly.
The concept of living in what we now call “tiny” or small houses has been around since the beginning of humankind. Caves were the first tiny houses, and as history went on, we humans came to live in tipis and cliff dwellings and cottages and cabins and living quarters on boats and other small spaces. In cities, studio apartments are popular and in the mid-twentieth century, suburbia was populated with small post-war bungalows of less than 600 square feet. In-law units and garden apartments add income to single-family homes.
Since blogs typically give most recent posts first, it can be difficult to read a chronological story from the beginning on a blog. So here is a list of the blog posts starting with the first post and moving forward in time:
