A Big Heart a Big Family and a Tiny House Startup with Marc Frederick

What do you get when you take 7 children, 2 adults, 1 bus, and a tiny-kitchen-on-wheels on a faith-based mission to ease the loneliness of homelessness? A fun and inspiring story about a new tiny house builder, of course. This week, Marc from BIGHEART Tiny House Co, joins us to tell the story of how his family started their somewhat unintentional tiny house journey by hitting the road on a converted school bus. Over the course of 6 months, they toured the country in search of the disparaged and poverty stricken, and freely donated their time and musical talents to raise the spirits of whomever they met. Upon their return, the sale of their tiny-kitchen-on-wheels turned into an opportunity to help a college student in an unexpected new way. And their first tiny house project was born. Word spread quickly about their affordable approach to tiny house building and their desire to help people fulfill their tiny house dreams. With so many builders who are vested in building the best, and the biggest, and the fanciest tiny houses they can; our visit this week with a man whose mission is based on faith and helping others was refreshing indeed. After hearing this week’s episode we think you’ll agree that BIGHEART Tiny House Company is a perfect moniker for this impressive and hard working family!

Wow this is wonderful. Ive struggled for so many yeats with my 4 children . Struggling to survive domestic violence. Fight society, fight the government. Now I am all alone fighting for my kids back . My whole goal was to buy a home for us so we would not get evicted… family services disagree… I tried buying an old motorhome, it got towed. One day , I will have a bus. Maybe two. Just some thing so I can say to my kids, we are home.. curently, on the way to homelessness again. Way to go. I Like it when things work out for people. Thank you.
