Our tiny life

About a year ago, Patrick and I (Lauren) were frustrated.  We felt stuck in our office lives, working long hours at jobs we didn't find all that fulfilling just to make payments on our 3 bedroom home and two cars.  We didn't know what we wanted to do and were definitely scared of the unknown path ahead, but we did know one thing for certain.  As long as we were together, we would have the courage to do anything.

That's when we discovered the tiny house movement!  We began following blogs, sketching layouts, and making plans.  We were married in September 2015 and immediately after, we put our house on the market. We moved into a much smaller place, sold most of our belongings, and quit our jobs.  We ordered a Tumbleweed Barn Raiser which we could finish ourselves before setting out on the adventure of a lifetime.

The goal is to travel around the U.S. for about 6 months, beginning in April 2016 with just the two of us, and our two dogs.
