Tiny house experience:
website: Simply Enough
After living in and renovating six traditional houses, Jody and Bill Brady decided to downsize their living space and try to live more sustainably. They attended the 2014 Tiny House Conference in Charlotte to learn more about the tiny house movement. From 2014 to 2015, they designed and built a tiny house on wheels in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. The house features include an alcohol-burning oven/stove, a composting toilet, a wood-burning heat stove and a portable solar-powered generator. On the same site, they’ve built a three-season screen house and a fenced-in vegetable garden.
