Mark your calendar!

Tiny House Chat is a space for Tiny House enthusiasts to come together and share ideas and stories.  The concept of this is to be for the Tiny House community and facilitated by the community.  We hope that this platform will achieve the following:

  • Develop lasting connections among the Tiny House community.
  • Strengthen and expand the community.
  • Foster the sharing of ideas.
  • Provide a resource for the various stages of a tiny house, from the ideas stage to the ‘is-this-working-right’ stage.
  • Have a lot of fun and get to know each other better!!

This will be an open forum, all questions and comments are encouraged.  For our first chat we have guest bloggers Laura LaVoie from 120SquareFeet.comChristopher and Malissa Tack from ChrisAndMalissa.comRyan Mitchell of TheTinyLife.com and Macy Miller of MiniMotives.com on video and voice.  Anyone who is interested will be able to log in and chat via text!  More information for how to log in will come as we approach our Chat Day, for the basics on how to log in please view THIS document.

  1. I guess we are not in a “Tiny house” but a very, very small house. (540 sq. feet)

    We are approaching retirement age. There is no way we could afford to retire with the house we were living in. Between the house payment and utility bills it took every dime we made pay to pay.

    We first checked into living on a house boat. That is another really great alternative. Cost is about 500 a month to live. The problem is, we would have had to move south to the coast somewhere. We didn’t want to be that far from the grand kids.

    We decided to buy property and build. Now our house payment is $140 a month, and the highest electric bill we have had is $49 for the month.
