Port Townsend Shepherd Huts

Guest Post by Michael Raymond

I visited a hut builder in England last fall (The Shepherd Hut Company) that has been building huts for 15 years and is in one of the books on tiny houses. I’ve been following the shepherd hut movement in England for over 10 years and think that the US and Canada will have a similar interest in the versatility of shepherd huts, but may take some time to be able to support domestic builders full time.

Introducing Monarch Tiny Homes

Monarch Tiny Homes is named after the monarch butterfly. This beautiful, winged creature migrates from Canada to Mexico and has a light footprint. A Monarch tiny home is also beautiful with a light footprint.

Monarch Tiny Homes is one of many companies to pop up onto the tiny house scene. However, our home at $47,000 with SIPs is something unique. And possibly the most exciting part of the home is our lifetime siding called UltraShield. Continue reading

Guest post from Troy Koubsky of Less Stuff, More Joy

Today I’m excited to share a guest post with you from someone very special. Troy Koubsky is a student in the Tiny Transition and Downsizing course, he was in the very first session over a year ago. Troy immediately stood out in the group as an incredible source of inspiration, motivation, and support. If you were having a bad day or struggling with downsizing, Troy was there to cheer you on and cheer you up. He quickly became a pillar of the vibrant community we have inside the course (Registration is now open for the session beginning on May 3rd! Register here).

Now, a year later, I am just completely in awe of the progress and transition Troy has made as a result of doing the course, setting goals for himself, and participating in the community forum. He keeps track of each item he donates and downsizes, inspiring everyone with his photos of progress. Troy is an incredible example of how living simply really is a lifelong process, he continues to curate and refine his beautiful life. Continue reading

Want To Downsize Your Life?

Want to downsize your life and find more time, freedom, and focus? Read this first.

The next session of Tiny Transition and Downsizing, the 8-week e-course, begins on May 3rd, 2015. You can register for the class and see all the details here!

You know you want to downsize. Heck – you NEED to downsize if you’re thinking about living in a tiny or small home! And you know that downsizing will allow you to save more money, live the life you want to live, and have the time and financial freedom to spend with family, travel, or your passions.

Maybe you’ve tried to “get organized” and “de-clutter” before. It probably felt pretty good…at first.

But a few days later, your home looks the same as it did before. And the progress you’re making is slow-going. You’re stuck. You’re not sure why – because you’ve read the books and the blogs but nothing really works.

Downsizing is HARD. But you don’t have to do it all alone.

Tiny Transition + Downsizing is the 8-week course that fundamentally changes your relationship with stuff and helps you de-clutter, downsize, and clear out your home and mind, in a step-by-step zero-overwhelm environment. Registration is open for the session beginning on May 3rd.

Preparing to transition into a tiny home, RV, trailer or cabin?
Just want to clear your space and get some sanity in your current home?
This is for you. Continue reading
