Our First [tiny] Home

Living Simply We are Ryan and Hannah. We just got married this year and are in the process of designing & building a Tiny Home to live in for the first few years of our life together. We want to live a simple, undiluted life that allows us to enjoy our passions and experiment with living in ways that are sustainable as well as attainable within our means. We want to be advocates for those who desire simple lives, so in lieu of wedding presents (that won't fit in the tiny space we hope to occupy) we are raising funds to build our first (tiny) home (see Kent Griswold or Dee Williams"˜ sites for other examples)!

- to save money (For the amount we would spend, renting a typical apartment for a year, we will be able to build and own our own tiny house.)
- to learn to live as sustainably as we can
- to open the door to experiment with additional methods of sustainable & attainable living. (An eventual goal of ours is to purchase a plot of land, and live in our tiny house while we are building an eco-friendly home built using alternative architectural methods.)
- not many people live in freakin 200 square feet!
- Ryan has a background in general contracting and a passion for learning about alternative architecture
- Hannah has a background in making small spaces cozy
Its perfect.

Help us build our first home together!
