Andrew offers some wonderful ideas that I know you’ll find helpful when it comes to considering living tiny, downsizing, letting go of your stuff, becoming debt-free, shopping habits, building tiny, and/or designing tiny because most importantly he teaches you how to do it your way.

To make Tiny House Talk better and more of a helpful/interesting resource, I’m planning video interviews with those who have built their own tiny houses or have gone through the struggles of getting rid of their stuff and moving into any form of a smaller, less normal space.

If this is you, and you’re excited about what you’ve done, let’s get together for a quick video chat so we can inspire others.

So since I didn’t have many updates for you guys this week, I’ll be giving you links to what else has been going on in the crazy world of tiny houses (plus my usual video):
