Why Tiny?

Tiny Houses and Disaster Preparedness

Good morning, happy monday!

I am so happy to be working from home again this week after an ill-fated venture into substitute teaching.  (what was I thinking?!)  Does everyone pretty much know that substitute teaching is horrible?!  yeah, well, now I know too.  fortunately, pain is the touchstone of all growth, so any awful experience is bound to be highly instructive, and the past two weeks have indeed been revealing.  I am just not suited to teaching – any group larger than about 6 people causes a noticeable amount of anxiety, and ideally, I prefer to interact with 1-2 people at a time.  so.  until I find a school with class sizes of two students!  I will stick with design work.

Why Tiny? … Economic Reasons for Living in a Tiny House
