Tiny Blue Devil Continues To Grow

Building a tiny house is one of those odd projects that seems to move slowly yet moves incredibly quick. While the visual results may not seem great, the amount of work is often mind-numbing. Since the start of January and the initial deck installation, the tiny house...

Tiny Blue Devil Officially Gets Underway

Many of you may remember me talking about my mentor role with South Lenoir High School in an effort to build a tiny house on wheels with their construction trades program. Called the Tiny Blue Devil we are building a 20' Elm (plans courtesy of Tumbleweed Tiny House...

Tiny Houses and Small Homes Can Free You From A Mortgage

When we were thinking of transitioning to Tiny r(E)volution v.3.0 we were perhaps most concerned about having to enter back into the mortgage pool. We knew we didn't have as much as we would like for a down payment. We knew our monthly budget was one we were happy...

Tiny House Update – 10.20.10 or How to Find Money

There isn't much to report on the build front. However, Crystal and I have gotten busy lately stripping the trailer and the remains of the camper part that were still visible. This included some plywood decking (all rotted, of course), a bit of linoleum, the old gas...

How to be a World Changer

Tonight Crystal and I were having dinner with my folks when we came upon a wonderful conversation. Now I may be biased but I tend to think this happens quite often in our house. My folks have great insight and my dad is always up for challenging me mentally,...

During this early process we have been asked several times why we would voluntarily go through the uneasiness, uncertainty, challenge, and trials of building a Tiny House when it is little more than a travel trailer. I wouldn't say I have come to a total, cut and dry,...

Buying a bed for Tiny House

Just as CanarsieBK declared the other day that Organic Isn't a Splurge, It's My Healthcare, so it shall be with our Tiny House sleeping arrangement. It won't be a splurge, it will instead be our way of saving on future surgical procedures, acupuncturists, and...

Tiny r(E)volution joins Project 333

As I started sorting through clothes this morning I had all but forgotten that just 3 years ago I was in Paris attending some of the hottest runway shows that season. In fact, the night before I attended the John Paul Gualtier show I was having coffee with J....

Minimalism. Nature or Nurture?

This past week I found myself watching a ridiculous number of episodes of the TLC program, HOARDING: Buried Alive. I am obviously not the only one who sits wide-eyed, mouth ajar, watching such shows. The TLC show is a second round at tackling the mental disorder, as...

Tiny House Update – 10.6.10

This past month we were on the road living in our Jayco pop-up as I had to visit multiple locations for work. Luckily Crystal was able to come with me and we decided to use the time to analyze, prioritize, and daydream about life in the Tiny House. When we left we...
