*There is no listed price for this custom built tiny house. You must contact the builder.

The Esk’et tiny house has a total square footage of 280 sqft, including 2 lofts. The plans, available here, suggest building on a 24ft trailer. (Our first build is 20ft). The height and width are within legal road restrictions (8’6″wide, 13’6″high), so it can be hooked up to a truck and moved, without the need for wide load permits. The weight is under 10’000 lbs.

I love  it when people come up with a tiny house design that is just a bit different from what we normally see being  built. As I have said before you are only limited by your imagination.

So here we have a beautiful rustic tiny house design. Just a little bit outside the norm. I mean just look at that half-moon window!

The More Stuff You Get Rid Of The More Free You Will Feel

How much stuff do you have? If you are like most people in North America you have about 300000 items floating around your place. That is a lot of stuff to look after, find a place for and clean.

Why do we have so much stuff? Well marketers do a very good job of convincing us that we always need something. Just bought the latest phone? Too bad. There is a new version that you should really check out. And so on. Plus we have this thing where we seem to feel the need to keep up with our neighbors. Competition maybe?

It is time that you Change The Code.

At times clutter has gotten the best of me as well.

So you have considered the benefits of owning fewer possessions: less to clean…

It Is All About Learning to Embrace Simplicity. Nothing Else Matters

Change The Code

As I wind down this incredible solo travel backpacking journey through Nicaragua, with an impromptu week in El Salvador, I am confirming what I already know: Life is better when it is all about learning to embrace simplicity.

Why Do We Insist on Making Life Complicated?

Playa Hermosa beach

Why do we insist on living like this?

Maybe it is the media telling us we are not good enough unless we are super busy and always wanting stuff that we really do not need.

I have a dream of living in a tiny house. I don’t know if a tiny home is really for me but I would love to find out!

I quite enjoy my apartment. I have owned houses and I get the whole “why pay someone else’s mortgage when you can get a house and own your own place” argument.

But you don’t own it, the bank does. And from experience I know that a house needs constant maintenance. Even new builds are not immune from this point it seems.

Yes it is an investment(something that makes you money) but the only way this happens is if you have a rental unit and/or when you sell. And how much have you really paid when you factor in interest?

We could go…
