A few months ago I did a post about forming a Tiny House Cohort to connect with other people that were building a tiny house at the same time I was. The idea was that we could meet up and share thoughts, problem solve and have fun through our building process. From that post I found a couple that was building the same house as I was, at the same time, in the same city. Not only was it great to find someone, but it further confirmed my belief that Tiny House people are awesome, and Alan and Marie defiantly verify that theory.
So please join me in welcoming Alan and Marie to the ranks of The Tiny Life. They will be joining us and sharing their story as they build their tiny house. Here is a little bit about them:
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 works 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.
As they post you can follow their posts specifically here: http://www.thetinylife.com/category/alan-and-marie They will of course show up on the regular blog so you can see them along their journey.
