Housing

Let me start out by saying I LOVE the tiny house movement. In fact, after much speculation into my reasons for this fairly recent obsession, I realized just WHY I love this trendy movement. It turns out, I grew up in the Original Tiny House. That’s right, my family was obviously ahead of their time.  [...]

You’ve heard the arguments before. A couple is looking for a new house and they want to make sure their new home can accommodate EVERYTHING.
