Brevard-TinyHouse-Live SImple

Do you want to just try out a tiny house for a few nights or meet up with other tiny house enthusiasts? The website, Live Simple, matches up tiny house owners with people who want to try out a small space. The site also features a tiny house community and tiny homes for sale. They run the gamut from THOW to teardrop trailers.


While still in the early stages, the site (like Airbnb for tiny spaces) only features homes under 500 square feet as well as campers and other tiny recreational options.

Tiny House For Sale: Eco Savvy and Family Friendly

Combat veteran, Lucas Berard, finds peace in the tiny house lifestyle while reaching out to empower other veterans to do the same.

Lucas is easy to spot from just about anywhere in Dancing Rabbit Eco-village. (He’s the beefy guy wearing a florescent orange t-shirt.) I recently found him working in his garden, where we chatted for a bit while he harvested a few peppers and plucked the last tender leaves of fresh lettuce for the year, near the tiny house where he lives: Bluestem.  (By the way, if you’re interested in seeing this house, and all the other tiny homes at Dancing Rabbit Eco-village, consider spending three weeks with us in 2016 through our visitor program.  You’ll get to see several different styles of tiny houses together in the same place, and learn a lot about environmental sustainability in the process.)
