Do you currently live, or plan to live, in Massachusetts? If not, where?

No answer yet

Do you own, or plan to own, a Tiny place?

We have a five year plan. We are in the planning stages now, we hope to start construction of our tiny house this spring. We are also researching where in Massachusetts we would be able to buy land to park our little house. I also love the idea of a community of tiny houses. I think it would be a great option for some of the single mothers out there who struggle to pay rent and take care of their children.

What Tiny-related skills or knowledge can you share with us?

At this point I really am just learning myself. I am a nurse by profession so no real building skills there.

What do you love about simple and smaller living?

I love the idea of not being a slave to a mortgage for the next twenty years or so. I love the idea of not living in fear of an illness or layoff causing us to lose housing. I also love the idea of being able to construct a small structure with all quality recycled materials and reducing our impact on the earth.


My name is Mary, I am 46, I have raised my kids and my husband and I are looking to downsize and simplify our lives. We plan to build our tiny house ourselves with the help of my son.
