Hi there! Jess and Todd here, the humans behind Tiny House of New York. We’re 30 and 40-somethings who sold our normal-sized house and shed the majority of our belongings for an unconventional idea: a tiny house on wheels. We’ve designed and are almost finished building our own. Throughout this journey we’ve discovered that it takes very little to create a happy life.

Why tiny house living?

  1. Financial freedom/mortgage-free living
  2. More free time (less house to clean, fewer household items to maintain!)
  3. An emphasis on experiences over things – more time with family, friends, and the opportunity to see more of the world
  4. A smaller footprint, a more sustainable and environmentally-friendly way of life

Marco & Allie and our teardrop travel camper, because we travel tiny, too.

Marco (left) and Allie (right, inside camper) are our four legged “kids”, along on this adventure with us!  Lots of people ask how we plan to live in the house with the dogs. The truth is they ensure we spend a lot of time outside. And when we’re inside, they’re cuddled up in their way-too-big-for-a-tiny-house dog beds. 🙂

We’ll post tiny house updates here, as well as our thoughts on consumerism, politics, social media, and travel. Thanks for following our journey.
