Alan Berkley & Marie Boucher

Writer & Builder

We’re total neophytes when it comes to building, but we have a very strong drive to live as simply and freely as possible, with as little negative impact on the planet as possible. Walk softly and carry very few sticks, (unless they’re 2x4s, in which case, always carry at least 2 extra). Alan’s work is in money, and I work in market research, but our focus is on getting ourselves out of the rat race as soon as possible, and if that means living in a 130 square foot house, so be it. We’re in our early 30’s, no kids, one dog, two cats. We decided to build Big Red in 2011, bought plans in 2012, and “broke ground” in 2013.

During the building process she started the CharlestonTinyHouse blog and now works organizing tiny house building workshops in South Carolina. Inspired by the small dwellings she inhabited during her time as a volunteer on organic farms, she hopes to continue discovering what the tiny lifestyle has in store for her.
