We are Paul + Bekah and we decided to build a tiny house on wheels. Why? There are lots of reasons so here are a few:

I (Bekah talking here) grew up in the Central African Republic in pretty much the middle of nowhere. I had a house and plumbing, but many of the kids I grew up with and played with did not. They lived in one room huts with their whole family.

Paul grew up in the Philippines.  It was a simple life with lots of time in the outdoors. And basically he could live in the woods in a tent and be happy.

We met in college in Indiana, got married in 2009, and then moved to France for a year in 2011. While we were there we lived in the most beautiful little French attic studio. It was simple and we loved it. 

Then we moved back to the US and got established in our lives in the Midwest. And America just has something about it that brings the ugly desire for "MORE! MORE! MORE!" out of you. I don't know why but it just happens here. 

But it is totally not necessary. We have seen it from everywhere we have lived and every experience we have had. More is normally not better. So why not make it happen?

I've always wanted to be a person that could pack up a box and live. I've always wondered if I could hack it during the zombie apocalypses. You know, simple and free. And I'm messy so I think that if I go simple, then there would be less for me to clean. 

So here we are. We decided to move to the PNW, and it is just so expensive there. So we thought: Let's build a tiny house, learn to live simply, and enjoy the rest of our time being outside in the beautiful landscape around us.

We are sort of nervous. But mostly exited. 

Here we go.
