We don’t have cable TV. We had never seen a tiny house show. There was a guy on Oprah one time but I didn’t pay too much attention to him. What started the journey for us was a book. It was called Tiny Homes Simple Shelter by Lloyd Kahn. We picked it up off my son and daughter in laws coffee table and were immediately intrigued. The seed was planted but it stayed dormant for quite some time. But we did our research, googled, youtubed and instagrammed anyone who had a tiny home. And every time we visited Mike and Jean Ann we would pour over the book asking our selves “could we?, should we? dare we?”
And one day we discovered a local tiny home building company right in our back yard. So we called up Brian at Mint Tiny Homes and he gave us the grand tour. It was very short (dare I say tiny) but we had a zillion questions and he patiently answered them all, not knowing if he would ever see us again.
Fast forward a year later and there were big changes happening in our lives so along with those changes, we asked ourselves if this was the time to rethink how we live. So once again we called up Brian and asked for another tour, and another round of questions. Not long after that we presented him with our design and he said “yes” to every design/functionality question we threw his way.
And there we were, contract in hand, money transferred, and our journey as tiny home people began…..
