It has been a really interesting time here at The Tiny Life. With so many new people to our Tiny Community I find myself wanting to do more and more for you all. I want to bring in other viewpoints, because a little variety would be welcomed, up until now I have done this with guest posts. But today I am stepping up, I am putting my money where my mouth is, I am accepting applications. I am looking to hire one writer to do a post once a week.
First and foremost, I want someone who is excited about a chance to share their passion, who cares about the Tiny House Community, all of which shows in their writing. Not only will you have a platform to share your thoughts with thousands, but you can get a modest pay for it!
This is a paid position that requires the individual to deliver original content on a weekly basis, one article a week on Monday. This position can be done from any location, so long as you are available via phone and have a high speed internet connection.

General Note: I will be reviewing all applications, applying does not necessarily mean you will be hired. My final selection will be only one person for the time being, the person will be expected to post once a week, on Monday.
A note about photo: A few folks inquiring why I request this. The reason I ask for it is that my goal is to develop a relationship with readers, having a face to connect to the voice brings in a personal element. Ultimately it is their writing, personality and voice that will be used to choose who will get the position. The photo will be used in the “about us” section, in an introductory post, and in some cases inline like you see sometimes with columnist.
That said, if someone really doesn’t want a photo of them posted, then I certainly would understand and wouldn’t force it.
So I found this little gem from a good friend of mine, thanks John!, this house is small but packs a ton of charm. It is a 9 x 14 foot house located in the Catskills. Originally a hunting cabin I believe, she had done quite a bit with not too much.
Ms. Foster has her own shabby-chic retreat. It may not have a bathroom or a kitchen, but it is a dream of Victoriana: stacks of Limoges china with tiny rosebud patterns; chandeliers dripping crystal; billows of tissue-paper garlands.
This is all the more impressive because she renovated the 9-by-14-foot cottage, an old hunting cabin, herself. The cost of renovating and furnishing it: $3,000.
I wish I could find some exterior shots to this house, but as of now, no luck. This Tiny House sits pretty at 410 square feet. It really is just a big open area that has very well defined spaces by the use of colors and built in elements to separate areas by function. One downside I see is the need for a bit more storage, but their might be some hidden somewhere. This little house is located in Portland Oregon.
