Congratulations on your retiremen! Are you going to continue to live in the White Mountains with your tiny house? I hope you set up a blog or something as you progress. I'm a Senior too and live in NH but am still working. I too cannot afford housing and am just renting a room for the next year. When my divorce is finalized I hope to have enough to set aside for my five year tiny plan...I'd be interested in knowing how yours works out.Are you a DIY or are you going to have a builder.
