Itty bitty super small teeny tiny houses. The “Tiny House” phenomenon hit my radar a couple years ago when I was looking for ways utilize every square inch of the house I currently live in.
My family is bursting at the seams of my home, and I was looking for ways to carve out an office space for myself. It all started with a search for a fold away desk.
Then I fell down the Pinterest pit. (If you want to see how far down the rabbit hole I fell, check out my “Tiny” boards.) Then I went to YouTube and didn’t emerge for days. I scared the crap out of my husband. He’s seen me fall down research holes before, but this one was different. I couldn’t stop.
Funny thing was, I wasn’t looking to write a book about it, I was just fascinated. So like every other writer I know, when something overwhelms my brain, I had to put the knowledge to use. I grabbed a paper and pen and started jotting down ideas.
My Tiny Houses, Big Hearts series erupted from my brain and landed on a pad of paper from one of my favorite authors. Then I put it aside. For all of ten minutes before I opened up a new document and started writing.
