Happy New Year 2014

Wow, where did this last year go? So much has happened in the last year in the tiny house world that I feel like I still am trying to catch up on it all. So many people building tiny houses, it is thrilling to see. I enjoy all the new blogs and websites of people sharing there stories and appreciate so many of you letting me pass them on via the Tiny House Blog.

The growth continues to amaze me as I come into the seventh year of publishing this blog. It has been fun to see the Tiny House Magazine publish issue number 12. A full year of an experiment that I believe has officially become a real product. Thank you to those faithful writers who make it happen.

I’m looking forward to seeing what 2014 brings to the tiny house movement. I think we are just getting ready to really take off as interest continues to grow. Happy New Year to you all!

Tiny House Blog on Vacation

My family and I are taking a vacation during the holidays and I will be away from a computer and the internet most of this time. I have pre-published a few posts and they will show up at different times. Christina will continue with the usual Monday posts so be sure and check in on those.

I will not be answering emails, but want to encourage you to continue to send in your stories and photographs like you usually do. I will also not be posting on the Facebook fan page or Google+ during this time. Please, feel free to dig back through the archives for inspiration and visit some of the other tiny house blogs during this brief vacation.

I want to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. I will return on January 5th and will get back into the normal routine shortly there after.

There are a couple of neat new books coming out real soon. Lloyd Kahn’s new book called Tiny Homes Simple Shelter and Deek’s new Humble Homes Simple Shacks book. I will be reviewing both real soon. My goal is to continue to bring great content, so please keep sending me your stories and ideas. I also want to clean up and streamline the blog so it is easier to get around and loads faster. There are now over 1,400 posts from the past four and a half years and I want them to be easier to find.
