Décor Changes to Make Your Tiny Home Feel All Fresh and New

No matter how spacious your home is, it’s always going to be too small to fit all the things you’d like to keep around.

How be you all? 

I'm Lauren.  I have had a dream to build tiny houses and travel from Canada to Argentina in them for a good few years now. But here I am, finally in the Americas, and ready for the journey. 

I'm at the start of the mission - having never built a house or anything like this before - I've landed keen to meet likeminded folk and get the dream moving.

I have done lots of research over the past years, and have a really good idea of what I'd like to build. Fully understanding that everything will evolve along the way, and the outcome will be more than I can currently imagine. 

I'm here to learn about the best practises, steps to take, and how to go about building. Things to look out for and consider ahead of time. And ways to avoid common mistakes for newbie tiny housers. Whether to go with a company, get a diy shell, build from scratch myself - i'm super unsure...

I want to build as sustainably and off grid as possible. Right now, there seems to be an enormous amount to consider. Guess any help to make sense of it all, order and timeline things and contacts to begin the journey with will be immensely appreciated.

Would be great to connect with people here and am excited for the summit to learn a lot from that.

Just for now - I guess all I'm saying is - 'hello! i'm here, ready, lets connect, learn, giggle and do this!'

love love love
