About Us

People are waking up to the fact that there is a better way to live; we want to live happier lives, to have less stress, to spend time with those we care about and doing the things that are important to us.  My name is Ryan Mitchell and I’ve been working for over a decade on finding the life that is right for me and helping others do the same.  I started with tiny houses and now today I aim to provide practical tools for everyday simple living.  We cover three main ways someone can live a simpler life: tiny houses, minimalism, and homesteading.
