Exciting Times

Hey all!

It has been a great start to this blog, while only being in existence for about 6 months we have seen a great response and can’t begin to tell you about how excited I am. Currently I am working on a few ideas to make this website even better, but until then, here are some things you might not already know about.

First off, we have a Facebook Fan Page, where I will have all the post from the blog, but other content as well.  This also allows you to connect with other Tiny House folks.  We are a close knit community and it is fun to meet others in it.

Next if you are a twitter person, follow me on twitter, again all the post, some extra content and various interesting things are shared through here.

Finally tell your friends about the blog and let me know about things you find (Tiny Houses, Products, Eco-Friendly things, etc.), I’ll post it and share with the community.

Tiny House, Big Drama

Drama

So yesterday’s post obviously brought some interesting thoughts to light, some loved it, some hated it.  While it wasn’t necessarily a very good argument against tiny houses, it did bring up a few things that are food for thought.  I think it is important to realize that tiny houses address many concerns we have with McMansions and bring us into a life that is more in tune with where we want to be.  At the same time, there are downsides.

Happy New Years

Taking today off, hope you had a very good new years and that this year will be a good one!
