In 2016, after years of fascination with the tiny house movement and much consideration we chose to sell our 1600 square foot home and move into a tiny house of 458 square feet. Our home sits on a foundation in a lake community. We explored all tiny possibilities including living aboard a boat, full time RVing, building a tiny house on wheels, or moving to a mobile home. In the end, we went with the home on the foundation, as we live in a four season climate with limited access to affordable year-round dockage or campgrounds and the excellent low interest loan rates that were available at the time of our decision. We have a sense of permanence and the ability to wander when we choose.
