Do you dream of living mortgage-free in your own hand-built house? What would you do if you owned your own home without a mortgage? If you already live mortgage-free how does it impact your life?
I asked these questions on my Tiny House Family facebook page last week and got some terrific responses.
The lives we lead as mortgage-free folks are the stuff of dreams, but these dreams are attainable. If you dream of this lifestyle, we’d be delighted to help you realize your dream.
If you are sitting there with very little money wondering how in the world you can do this, please take a breath and tell yourself it is possible. We are proof. After we lost our business in 2008, then we lost our home. Our journey to mortgage-free started with $400 in savings. After sticking to a detailed budget and learning to live below our means, we saved enough to buy 3 acres for cash in 2010. We continued saving and salvaging and built an 8’ x 21’ tiny house for $12,000. We’ve lived here with our two kids for four years. We’ve continued saving and building and are almost done with the big house – our 1400 sq. ft. right-sized house. Our garden continues to expand as do our animal paddocks where we raise all of our own eggs and meat. All of this was a dream seven years ago. Dreams become reality with courage and continuous effort.
You can do what we’ve done. You can totally do it. We’ve mapped out every step we took to make this happen and turned it into our 10 week ecourse. We’ve helped over 250 folks started on their own path to zero-debt living, and we’d be delighted to help you.
Join us in this most courageous endeavor. The summer session of our ecourse starts on June 13, 2015. Registration is open now. Read all the details and register here. Read testimonials here.
