If you're interested in downsizing, big time, there are resources out there that will help you get down to the bare essentials! Clothesline Tiny Homes is a design-build team that's helping people create smaller and more efficient homes. It was started by Carrie and Shane Caverly after they built their own tiny home. Here's why the couple says they decided to make such a big change:
Why are we building a tiny home? Well mainly because we are tired of paying mortgages and rent and having nothing to show for it. We want to put our time and efforts into something of our own – something we can call home – and hopefully something we can learn from and put more back into the river of life. Also, we want to make a change toward smaller, simpler living. We have too much stuff. And if everyone has too much stuff then how can the Earth possibly sustain us? We’d like to develop a lifestyle that is simple, adventurous, and fun!
