Peter has been living in an extreme tiny house, the size is 4′ x 7′ which measures out to 28 square feet. Peter recently started a blog and goes into the details of living this small and I am going let Peter tell you a what it is like to live in these small quarters.
I have now been living in my little trailer for almost nine months. Eight of those months have been parked next to my friends house in Washington State. With an extension chord running from the garage it is essentially like a detached bedroom.
I have power for my space heater which came in handy this winter when it got down to about 10 degrees. I also keep my laptop charged and am able to recieve a wifi signal from the house. Lighting is handled by battery powered LED lights. They do a pretty good job but are not quite bright enough to read by. As I may have mentioned previously, I have a small fold down table, a decent sized closet/cabinet, and my bookcase full of books. All in all, quite cozy.
As far as the not so stellar aspects of tiny trailer living. It can seem a bit cramped at times. Much of my possessions are stored in my friends garage. I did purge a lot of my stuff before this adventure began, however I still have a lot of work to do. It does fit into ( and on top of) my truck but isn’t very accessible. My trailer is pretty easy to get into almost any camp site and I’d like to keep it that way, so I am leaning against a bigger rig. Which means I will need to get rid of even more of my treasures!
