Every once in awhile, most recently when we got back from Alaska this past summer, August 11th 2011, Cheryl will bring up the idea we should down size our 3200sq house to something much smaller. She has even talked about living in one of these Tiny houses. I have thought about it but that’s about it. Am I too attached to my space? All our “stuff”? Could I consolidate that much to fit into a Tiny space like this? In theory I think I would love to say yes, but in reality I think I am just spoiled and love having space and things. I really do not want to be this way but it is what it is. Does that mean we will not down size someday? No. We will….as we get “older” and want to ride further away from home, we will need to have something less high maintenance and be able to travel with our bikes more freely.
As it stands we still have 3 dogs, one in heart failure and elderly sick cat. We are very attached to our jobs but if we had less property we would not have to work so much. Time will tell but to be honest these little houses really make sense to us just perhaps not now. What do you all think?
Do you want to travel with home comfort? If yes – check this amazing timber trailer home. ProtoHaus is a timber frame or “stick built” house with accent on sustainability, functionality, and aesthetics. It’s fabricated primarily from recycled and reclaimed materials. The building process was overseen and assisted by S. C. Holley Construction. This transportable house is built on a trailer bed rated to withstand 14,000 pounds. Separate fresh, gray, and black water systems are integrated into the design allowing for remote removal and disposal of waste. A solar and wind system power the house allowing it to be off grid. Stunning idea!
