When I embarked on my tiny homes journey, I was 26 years old. I loved living in Vermont, but I was not sure if I was going to stay here for the rest of my life. The idea of committing to a piece of real estate for a house that would not be able to come with me, seemed risky.
I know the common wisdom is that real estate values go up over time, so buying wherever you are and then selling when you want to move used to be a good idea. But witnessing the housing bubble burst in 2008 and then the financial crisis in 2009 made me rethink that old adage. With my tiny house on wheels, I could always bring my house with me if I decided to move anywhere.
chose to put it on wheels, so that I could get around most building regulations.
