I have been living tiny now, floating, in fact, off and on when not teaching internationally. I have a 35 foot by 12.5 foot 2006 Aqualodge houseboat I am now selling in Miami, Florida. It just came out of the shipyard with a freshly painted bottom and sterling survey. It’s tied up at a marina in Miami Florida where the buyer could probably continue to live aboard as long as they call themselves ” year round cruisers.” It’s a wonderful way to live.
I am sadly selling it for $52,000 as I am moving to California. I have owned it for 3+years.

I’ve been reading your blog for a while, and enjoy the pictures and stories of little houses… I thought I would share one of my own…
I was able to find an affordable (and remarkable) private lakehouse for rent on property that bordered the farm, and realized that I needed a storage solution for stuff accumulated over the past 10 years. One of the problems I had found in the past, is that every time I purchased a tract of land, I felt a need to have some sort of a structure on it, and always built the structure in a permanent manner on the property that had just been acquired.
Also, with my modest budget, the only way to aquire bigger tracts of land, often meant selling the smaller tracts, once they had been partially developed. The solution was to construct a portable building, in a way that was rock solid, yet still able to be transported. My solution is included in these photos. Continue Reading »

Marc and Trudi Boese and their bright yellow 115 square foot house were recently featured in a video and an article in the Florida Times-Union. Their decision to live more lightly on the land was influenced by a trip they took around the U.S. in 2009 in a biodiesel car and a handmade trailer. They are also living smaller for their new baby daughter, who is due in August.
The couple built the house on wheels on an acre of land in Florida that also houses several chickens and their vegetable and fruit garden. The house contains a small kitchen with a sink, microwave and fold down table, a bathroom with a shower and toilet, a small TV room with a couch, and a sleeping loft. The baby’s crib will be placed in the kitchen next to the dining table. They also have a workshop for tools and a prefabricated shed for some boxes of clothes and books. The TV, refrigerator, water pumps, air-conditioner and LED lights are powered by solar panels. Continue Reading »
