Hi, I’m Alex Pino. In 2007 I started to explore simple living and frugality because I wanted to get out of debt and lower my expenses.
Meanwhile by 2009 my fiancee Andrea and I went from living in a 1400 square foot home…
…to moving to a ~450sq. ft. apartment!

At Jay Shafer’s Tiny House Workshop in March of 2010 (My first one)
In March of 2010 I got to go to one of Jay Shafer’s tiny house workshops. It was in Orlando, Florida.
This helped me better understand what it takes to design and build a tiny house (on a trailer).
In July 2011 at Derek “Deek” Diedricksen’s Micro Building Workshop
Building Your Own Tiny House
If you need help building, designing or getting your own tiny house built start with my free eBook, Plans to Build Your Own Tiny House. If you want to take it further, I recommend Dan Louche’s Tiny House Construction Guide. He also offers e-workshops and hands on workshops (see his events/workshops tab).
