Downsizing to a Shed

Downsizing to a Shed

“The tiny house movement is not a fad, the McMansion was a fad.”

Currently, I own a 3000 square foot home and between working to pay for it, cleaning & maintaining the it, I have no free time. I’m imprisoned by the house and the size has lost it’s appeal.

I understand why a person would choose to live in a shed-sized tiny house. It offers freedom from the very things that keep me imprisoned. It offers better cash flow and allows owners to experience life for reasons beyond acquisition. I suspect tiny house owners spend more time out of doors. In another year, I’ll be downsizing significantly, the goal is to make my tiny house mobile.
