What people are saying...



Jay Shafer

"Andrew's the bomb when it comes to building a tiny house and explaining the process clearly. I can't recommend his video highly enough. It's the most beautifully done and thoroughly informative footage. Andrew's a far better builder than most anyone I know, including me." - Jay Shafer (FourLightsHouses.com)


Ryan Mitchell

"The hOMe plans are very high quality, contain a lot of detail, and are geared toward the beginner builder. The materials list is incredibly detailed and the framing plans feature more detail than standard. Also, Andrew’s detailed video explaining how to read house plans is not to be missed." - Ryan Mitchell (TheTinyLife.com)

We love how easy and carefree compact living is feeling.  Andrew […]

Sacramento KOA welcome sign

Sacramento KOA

10:37pm We are parked at our first bona-fide RV campground ever, the Sacramento KOA.  We pulled in around 10pm and were grateful for the shroud of darkness that kept our anonymity as we realized (fortunately before completely detaching the tent trailer from the car) that we had entered the spot from the wrong side and […]

Baja Bound: Adios USA

After nearly eight weeks of intense preparation, hustle, bustle and more to-do lists than you can shake a stick at, we have shoved off from the peaceful and familiar haven of Ashland, Oregon and Baja bound.  I’d love to say that we are feeling high states of elation and celebration, however, the mood is more […]

Homeless At Last!

The move has happened.  We are homeless at last! As we drove away from the house for the last time, I was surprised by how elated I felt.  This came as a shock.  Since then, not having a ‘home’ has felt incredibly freeing.  Mind you, it’s only been 4 days and we have had the […]
