Builder/teacher/consultant/workshop leader/motivational speaker/author
Andrew Morrison has been a professional builder for 20 years and has been teaching people how to build their own homes in his hands on workshops since 2004. In that time he has personally taught over 2,500 participants how to hand craft their own homes and has seen again and again that anyone with passion and perseverance can build theirs too. Andrew and his family’s personal experience with tiny housing came while living in the “American Dream” home. Frustrated by feeling like slaves to it, they got rid of 90% of their worldly belongings, bought a pop up tent trailer and spent nearly 5 months reassessing what “home” meant to them while living in Mexico.
Andrew and his wife, Gabriella, are the creators of “hOMe”, the 207 SF (+110 SF in lofts) modern tiny house on wheels. They live and work in hOMe full time, off grid, and debt free. With the extra time and money that they have they travel and enjoy time together as a family.
About Gabriella Morrison
Intrigued by the concept of shelter since my youth, details around how and where we as a species live have always been on the forefront. When I first read about the tiny house movement a few years ago I lit up because reflected before me was a way of life that I had been longing for. Simple, uncluttered, environmentally sane, affordable. Conscious living. On a quest to simplify our own lives we have been on a journey of stripping down and simplifying since. From getting rid of 90% of our belongings, to living in a pop up tent trailer in Baja with Andrew and our 11 year old daughter, to purchasing our own 5 acres to create our vision of off-grid tiny living, what we have been learning about human scale, material goods, needs, joy, freedom, and contentment has been life changing.
