In my wanderings researching everything I can lay sight on concerning this incredible movement toward a more rational, simpler, environmentally sound and financially liberating life style I recently discovered Gabriella and Andrew Morrison the creators of tinyHouseBuild.com. What a joy! Everything you could possible wish to find on one web site is here to be found along with many links.

Gabriella’s blog has a wealth of not only vital information about how to, it also includes anecdotes of their adventures along this path. After all, what we seek is not only to save money, which is a definite bonus by living large in smaller spaces but, it is also about community. They share the process and in their FAQ section they address all questions and are answered in detail. They have invested soul felt time and energy to create a welcoming home for all to share in their collective knowledge.

Andrew makes available, at a most reasonable cost, all of the plans, material lists, schematics, blueprints and DVD’s for the grand tiny house they now live in. (I in no way benefit financially from this recommendation. I am merely impassioned by this movement to someday be able to fully incorporate) Please do yourself a favor and check them out. Following, the hOMe tour video. You will be rewarded for time well spent. And checkout their FB page while your out and about.

They were already aware of the fact that having a lot of things does not afford personal nor environmental well-being. In fact we are somewhat lagging along these lines and in far too many instances contributing to just the opposite.  (more…)
