Home Is Where...? Living In A Tiny Home.
I'm curious how many of you own a home and how many of you rent. My hubby and I rented an apartment during our engagement and we spent the entire time pining for our own place. We had loud neighbors, rats in the walls, and car break-ins almost on a weekly basis. Now we own a home and although I love it, there is serious commitment that comes with a mortgage. We can't just pick up and move, as I wrote about here.
I was reminded of this when reading Ash's blog, English Major's Narrative, when she wrote about her desire to build a Tumblewood home. If you don't know, the Tumblewood company creates and sells plans for really tiny homes, all of which look incredibly comfortable, eco-friendly, and worthy of kicking it back in after a long day. Maybe the best thing about owning a tiny home though is that you really can just pick up and move...whenever you want!
Of course, I have a hubby and a toddler and there is no way we could live comfortably in one of these tiny homes for an extended period of time, but that doesn't stop me from dreaming about it. I can easily see myself enjoying the Popoma house, one of their "towable" homes (pictured below), and truckin' it out to Sausalito, California (one of my favorite U.S. cities.)
What about you? Could you simplify your life enough to live in a tiny home? Where would you take your portable home?
