↟ Break Away Tale NR 155 // @living_the_tiny_dream

Hello! I’m Alexis and I live in a 290sq ft tiny house that I built with my husband and @backcountrytinyhomes. We also share our little home with our dog, two cats, and four chickens. Don’t worry, the chickens have their own house, ha!⠀

We have lived in our tiny home for a little over a year now and we love it SO much. It forces us to think and live more intentionally, minimally, and be aware of our consumption. Also, we are saving loads of money and have been able to seriously focus on paying down our debts. We have a goal to become debt free in the next four years and I really think we can do it!⠀

My most favorite part of living this way is the time we get back. It only takes a fraction of the time to clean this house versus a traditionally sized house. There is very minimal upkeep and maintenance, and we just own less, which means we take care of less. This time frees us up to do more of what we love! What’s not to like about that?!⠀

I would recommend anyone thinking about this lifestyle to try it out, either by staying in AirBnb’s or visiting a builder near you to see how you feel in a small space. If you like it, don’t be afraid to take the leap!⠀
