UPDATE: I’ve been building on it for almost 5 1/2 months (10 months in all-bad weather). The harsh winter did set me back a bit. If you have any questions please message me and feel free to leave a comment. BTW the house with trailer weighs 5600 lbs. The materials cost for building this tiny house runs $22,000.00. For those of you who would still like access to my old website… just go to: mytinyhouse.webs.com. I am not an architect, designer or contractor. I built this solely for my own personal use. I have no blueprints for sale. This is a style of home designed by Jay Shafer who is now the owner of Four Lights Tiny Houses dot com. I hope you find inspiration in building your own tiny house.
My intention is in living a free more engaging and natural life as opposed to existing. I want to be free to be me and indulge in a more meaningful existence. This is not to deny myself the grandest of pleasures that the world and technology has to offer, but to be wise as to its use. I see foolishness in most of our political and economic structures. Many suggest that as a society, culture, or humanity in general, we are highly evolved. I see earth’s humanity as childish and flawed. Humans have killed over 150 million of their own species in just the last 100 years alone for no real enduring purpose. Not to mention the countless abuses against other co-inhabitants of our planet. So, my site is about more than just tiny house living as a means. It is more about how we can reunite as the one functioning and caring entity that we, on a more grander scale, are. Why a tiny house and sustainability? It’s just one doable way to clear our minds of the cultural clutter that is both blinding us and destroying us. Just a small step in drawing attention to the cause, and one day, maybe the cure.
