this blog is not about me. it’s not even really about blogging. it’s about the treasures of everyday life. things one finds poking around in love, friendship, beauty, fashion, design, science and politics. it should therefore rather be considered a salmagundi of lovely things. at least to me they are.
The Tiny Project is Alex Lisefski's attempt to live a simpler, more conscious, debt-free life, and in doing so helping to set and example and educate the community about alternative, affordable, more sustainable ways of living.
The tiny house movement is rapidly gaining popularity in the US and elsewhere around the world. Though no two tiny homes are identical, they share many core principles, and of course, they are all quite tiny! Though a tiny house can be built on a foundation, many people choose to build on a flatbed trailer, in order to make the house mobile, and to avoid minimum square footage requirements that most municipalities have in place for permanent structures.
Building on a trailer means the house is considered more like an RV, and does not need to adhere to the same permits, codes, and rules associated with building a normal home. The trick with trying to live full-time in a pseudo-RV is where to park it.
