I've lived in 125 sq ft since Sept 14 and really love it. I'm writing a book about our experiences and would love to compare notes with others.
What is your connection to the tiny house world?
I enjoy simple living with my genius pipe organ builder husband in a tiny house with a dawg & a parakeet

About Me
I am a retired pastry chef/restaurant owner, and a lover of yarn, color, food, and words. I own a pipe organ conservation company www.Geshenke.com and work alongside my husband, Certified Pipe Organ Builder, Xaver Wilhelmy, who is known as the first to build pipe organs with glass www.FlagPipes.com. I have worked professionally in fifteen art media, most recently in weaving in the Japanese Saori tradition using reclaimed fabric, found objects, and hand dyed fabric and yarn. We enjoy vintage cars and my favorites are my 1979 MGB, 1985 Mercedes 300 Turbo Diesel Coupe, and his 1969 Opel Rekord, plus some other interesting scrap metal taking up space in the field. I blog about living simply in a 125 sq ft "tiny house", weaving, pipe organs, minimalism, and living artfully at www.OneTinyLittleHome.com. We live under the radar in New Hope, Virginia.
