Hi, my name is Alecia. After years of being a backpacker, I wasn't ready to move into a giant house. Instead, I wanted to stick with my travelling roots. I loved the idea of just having the basics so I built a small home. I eventually traded that tiny home in for a husband, two kids and a piece of suburban real estate, but I utilise many of the design tricks I learned while living in my small house. I love the small house movement, and I wanted to create a blog about it to introduce others to the concept. If you want to buy or build a small house, this is a great place to start learning about that process. Here, you can also learn how to integrate small house strategies into your regular size house. Welcome!
