So while the rest of us have to build the economy there are some people that have done things right and decided that the rat race and the 9-5 is not for them…And I envy these people sooooo much….
Take Jenna and Guillaume. One is a writer and the other a photographer…(insert cheesy 80’s sitcom jingle here). Being burdened by student loans and various other debts they decide they had enough and went on, what I think is an amazing journey… A couple of years ago they quit their jobs sold what they can and built a tiny house that they can take around America and blog about it…GENIUS!!
In Jenna’s own words: “We began our tiny house build with zero construction experience and a “we’ll learn as we go” attitude. What we didn’t realize was that we weren’t just building a home, we were also challenging ourselves to rethink the idea of “home” altogether. After dozens of mistakes, life lessons and a brutal downsize, we hit the road with our one-of-a-kind tiny house on wheels! Six months and 10,000 miles later, our tiny abode has taken us on a wild adventure. Along the way, we’ve met numerous like-minded people who build and reside in small structures such as: tiny homes, tree houses, yurts, homemade house boats, etc. Guillaume photographs these alternative lifestyle pioneers in their innovative dwellings, while I write down their stories.”
Although the idea was not originally theirs they did make it their own. There are some ridiculously cool “Tiny Houses” out there and I just love the idea of getting everything you need while taking as little as possible. This just sounds like one amazing way of spending your life and I am really starting to re-evaluate my role in this universe.
