22 Tiny House Questions Answered in 22 Days With A Builder – Day 4

Alex: How far back does your interest for living simply go?


Aldo: Ever since adolescence I have been drawn toward simplicity.

I had a sense that the finest things in life were not dependent material objects, and for the most part saw excessive consumerism as a liability to ourselves and the ecosystem..

Sometimes material possessions become distraction from the pursuit of our real interests and concerns.

    Aldo sure found a great space to build his tiny house in. One of the biggest hurdles for lots of us who want to start building our tiny homes is finding a space to build in.

      Yes he did. It actually took him a long time to find the space. He contacted lots of people before securing it. Thanks for reading Victor!
