About

Life As A Tiny House, is my life story, being born three months early, spent my first month of life in an incubator, not walking until the age of 3, doctors later saying I have a slight case of cerebral palsy, making it difficult to walk. At the age of when most kids are learning how to swim and ride a bike I was in the hospital having surgery. Also dealing with kids at school making fun of me, for being different.

Moving my 2nd year in high school, away from the few friends that I had, getting F's in class acting out being told if I don't change my ways I'll be a 5th year senior. Led me to have suicidal thoughts, but I did a complete turn around and finished school with my graduating class. My 1st part time job was in retail, after a few years went into corporate a 9 to 5 in finance, working in a rat maze of cubicles. Leaving after seven years to start my own dog walking business. After my best friend passed away a few years ago, having suicidal thoughts once again. 

At the same time I found a TV show about tiny houses, I fell in love with the tiny house lifestyle. That day I started planning to go tiny, I believe to this day it's one of the main reasons why I'm still here. Watching tiny house videos on you-tube, and talking online to other people living in tiny houses. Designing my own tiny house, starting my own DIY build, dreaming of starting a tiny house community of 6 to 10 tiny houses on a working farm. Has given me a feeling of purpose in life, a reason to live.

My book is about my life up to my 40th birthday, taking a road trip, building my own tiny house, and life on the farm, meeting new people, making new friends. Since I'll be turning 40 this year, the ending of the book is the way I want the rest of my life to go.

With your help I'll be able to finish my book, publish and bring it to print, with my first stretch goal you'll also help me finish the interior of my tiny house. My second stretch goal would help me start the tiny house community on a working farm in Montana. 

My first stretch goal of 4,500 would help me finish the interior of my tiny house.

My second stretch goal of 20,000 would help me start the tiny house community on a working farm in Montana

Risks and challenges

There are many risks that come along with trying to complete any type of project. In my case, trying to finish and publish a book can be a daunting task. As a self-publisher, I wouldn't have one of the large, corporate companies backing my work. On the other hand, I also won't have anyone trying to change my words for the sake of money. It will be incredibly difficult to get the word out. But with your help I believe we can get this done. Thank you for your support in making my dreams come true and making Life As A Tiny House my life story become a book.
