Ever since I can remember I have always wanted to go back to my roots of living off the land in the country. But lately it’s become a small obsession! I am thrilled to see people finding unconventional ways of living and what they call home. I adore tiny homes and think its such a good option to live mortgage free. Less is more and simplifying your life will lead to less stress and more happiness, I can say from experience. I can’t wait to one day have a tiny home on the lake with a great big vegetable garden and chickens running around.
While researching tiny homes I have come across a group of people that renovate and transform big yellow school buses into beautiful on the go homes. Then a light bulb went off! This could be our project and our tiny home on wheels! Trevor looked at me a little crazy at the thought of living in a bus and said “of all people I would have never thought you’d say that! You have way too many clothes!” However, once he saw the amazing job that people have done to decorate theirs, he became more intrigued.
Living mortgage free and having the ability to travel is what we both dream of doing for the next few years. I know living in a tiny home, an RV or a bus may not be for everyone… I can understand that. But for us its exciting. Eventually we want the tiny home on the lake with the big garden and the chickens, but for now, for the next few years a bus would serve great purpose to us as we travel through America.
I am all but still day dreaming and thinking up a storm on this bus idea and we want to travel the world first. But if others can do it, so can we. Society tells us we need to buy big home, have a nice car and fancy things … but in reality those things clutter your mind and empty your wallet. We want to live in happiness and freedom and make amazing memories.
I pitched the idea to friends and family and seriously got mixed reactions… Let me know your thoughts below?
