I paged through the design, brimming with excitement. I’m confident that I have the carpentry skills to build this myself. Even if I get into a bind, I’m sure my father can assist me when needed. So I started doing some Google searches on local trailer makers or even a nice used one.
Then it hit me! What if I actually find one?! I don’t have a way to pull it. I drive a little Honda Civic. WAY to small to pull a twenty foot, dual axle trailer. Plus I’m sure that if I went to a place to get a hitch installed on it, they would just laugh at me when I explained what I wanted to pull. Well I guess I could borrow a truck or even rent one, when I needed to move it.
Then there is my son. The plan is for a small one bedroom home. Great for a couple with no kids or a single adult. But where would my son sleep? I guess we could share the bed. He is still young. But it will get a little awkward when he gets into his teens.
Then I need to cull out my possessions to figure out what I need to move. I have minimized so much of my life, this shouldn’t be too bad. I’ll just make a quick list.
- My rolling tool chest (a man needs tools)
- My childhood comic book collection (I STILL haven’t been able to sell them)
- My gun collection (remember I live in Texas
- My son’s LEGO collection
Wait! I think I have already ran out of room.
Hmmmmmmmm I’m not really sure I am in the right state of mind or time of my life where a tiny home would work for me. I can see having one as a get-a-way home, on a little piece of land somewhere. But I just don’t think I could live in one permanently. Which really sucks! Because they are so cool.
Wow I suddenly have a much higher opinion of people who can actually transition into this lifestyle.
