Hurricane Katrina played a major part in Julie Martin‘s move from specializing in restoring historic homes to building a portable, affordable, well built vision on wheels called the “Fresh Start.” Julie lost everything in Katrina, but gained a vision on building small homes from the experience.
With the initial guidance of Jay Shafer of Tumbleweed Tiny Houses, Julie has started a new company called Martin House-To-Go
with the goal of making an affordable tiny house that can be easily moved from place to place on a trailer. Or if you prefer to leave your house in one place it can be removed from the trailer and put on a foundation.
With 2008 comes a new model called the Fresh Start. With an introductory price of $29,900, all you need to get one of your own is a 3/4 ton truck with a 2 5/16th trailer hitch ball and a spirit of adventure.
These tiny homes can be used as a primary residence, for vacation and travel, a vacation home, a mother-in-law house or a private guest cottage or spare room.
With a full bath, kitchen and loft and quality throughout, I would put this tiny house high on my list.
