My friend Dee Williams is a pioneer of the modern tiny house movement. She lived in her 84 square foot tiny home for 13 years before downsizing into 56 square feet.
The first tiny house on wheels I ever saw was Tammy Strobel and Logan Smith’s house. It was designed by my guest Dee Williams and built by her company Portland Alternative Design. In this wide ranging interview, we start before Dee ever built her own tiny house on wheels, and explore how this tiny pioneer chose to downsize into 84 square feet.
Dee Williams was one of the first high profile tiny house dwellers and being first isn’t always easy. So in this conversation, I’ll talk with Dee shares the initial reactions to her living tiny, how she found parking for her house, and some of the unexpected benefits and challenges of living tiny.
