Episode-2281- James Burnette on Tiny Houses for Survival — 2 Comments

  1. What James mentioned about the difficulty of having ‘alone space’ with a tiny house is probably the biggest reason I don’t think I could do it. If I was alone I’d be great, but with my family I would go crazy in short order… even with our medium-sized apartment now, not having a room all to myself drives me a little nuts. But while I’m not in or planning to live in a tiny house, I am fully onboard with everything he says about minimizing expenses… which, when you think about it, is one of the primary purposes behind what a tiny house SHOULD be. We chose this location and lifestyle partly for that reason; being able to live comfortably on less than $1000/month takes a lot of pressure off and gives us options we otherwise wouldn’t have. If we chose the ‘broke-ass redneck’ route, we could probably do it on less than $500/month… but having things like private kindergarten and imported fresh fruits & fish are pretty close to non-negotiable if we didn’t want to be miserable 🙂
