Now I don’t want to mislead you, we are not back in the tiny house, nor any kind of tiny house. That is, our house might be considered small if you live in an average American house of nearly 2700 square feet. We come in somewhere around 1300 square feet, but it is not tiny.…Read more Update on Life in a Tiny House
It didn't really start with a tiny house, our new life. But I have to admit, the whole tiny house thing did give our new life a kick start. I say our new life because it was just a year ago that Jim retired from a life of vocational ministry, primarily teaching in the Seminary classroom…Read more Beginning With a Tiny House
For nearly thirty years, I would start praying around the first of November that God would provide the right weather for our college students (we both worked in the education world) to get home, first for Thanksgiving, then for Christmas.

But as I think of it now, the…Read more Tiny Houses and My Irish Company

Yes, five years and a month or so ago, I recognized that…Read more Six Things and a Tiny House
When I started the piles of things I thought most necessary for life in a tiny house over two months ago, I compared it to our experience moving into our first home. Then we were newlyweds, Jim was in the Army, and we were moving to New Jersey where he was stationed as a student…Read more Packing It Up
One of the things that attracted us to this tiny house experiment was that it was back home, back where we grew up and where we still have lots of friends. But as that old cliché goes, “Time flies when you are having fun.” And it sure did. It took us nearly four weeks to…Read more Old Friends Make the Best Friends!
People have asked us lots of questions about living in a tiny house. However, when it comes to most frequently asked questions, this one has to be near the top, "How do you fight when there's no place to go?" Well, first off, there are places to go in…Read more So How Do You Fight in a Tiny House?
