Howdy Friends! How are you hanging in there? 

We're currently working from our tiny home at our "everything table." Christian is editing this week's tour video, and as I write to you, Winnie is peacefully, and adorably napping next to me on the couch.

Furry friend cuddles make self-isolation 100% bearable. Good tiny house news also helps.

4) Free Tiny House Parking in Arizona!

Looking for parking away from it all? An incredible FREE tiny home parking opportunity is available on our friend, Richard's off-grid homestead in Tombstone, Arizona. Get the details here.

Richard's tiny house journey began after a life-changing accident, which inspired him to build this:

He later downsized into a Honda Element, then built a designed/built a micro house:

Last year, Richard hiked 2650+ miles on the Pacific Crest Trail. From there, he bought his Tombstone property to create his dream off-grid homestead. And guess what? He moved back into his first tiny house, shown above.

Importantly, all of his travels and builds have been funded by working as a digital nomad. Richard is a graphic and tiny house designer—learn more here.

As Richard's story has shown, to craft a satisfying lifestyle it's all about what is just right for YOU.

Shake off the mold, and redefine what personal success means to you. Also remember, a tiny home is more than shelter. It's a tool to help achieve your lifestyle goals.

“You have brains in your head.
You have feet in your shoes.
You can steer yourself any direction you choose.”

― Dr. Seuss, Oh, the Places You'll Go! 


From our tiny home to yours, we're sending you warm wishes for good health and well-being.
