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.

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.)

My name is Dwayne A. Jones and I’m a contractor and missionary. Traveling to Ghana West Africa since 2003, Haiti since 2008, and India for the first time last year in 2014,

I’ve dreamed of building small affordable houses world-wide. This house is a start of many projects to encourage sustainable living. Continue reading
