The Beers is a family of five living in a tiny house on a historic homestead. Finding their dream property in northern Arizona took some trial and error. For them, all the time and energy spent was well worth it to achieve a slowing living lifestyle. Several years ago, Justin and Rachel worked long hours in corporate America in bustling Phoenix. Quality time with their kids felt all too rare. Ultimately, their dissatisfaction with the status quo led them to sell their large house and move into an Airstream.
“What pushed us to do that too was my mom passed away in 2017. She’d only been retired for about ten years and really put into perspective how short life was. So, I just knew time was fleeting and wanted to make sure to live life and be with my family because I didn’t see them very much. My heart was drawing me to be closer to them.
We decided to sell 90% of our belongings, live simply and just more experiences over stuff, and be together.
I’m so happy we did. We definitely our hurdles and bumps along the way.
As soon as we stepped on this land, it felt like home. I knew that our journey had drawn us here.”
