Long before the tiny house movement began, Pat lived a life in tiny living quarters for several years aboard a boat with her husband and six children. Like so many who dream the ‘tiny-house dream, she had a fairly good-sized hame with lots of space, and lots and lots of stuff filling it up.

Pat and her husband made the decision to let go of our fairly good-sized house along with much of the stuff that filled it, it wasn’t out of necessity, but out of wanting to live a freer, simpler lifestyle. It took a while to sort through everything, distribute the keepsakes and mementos and find a place for everything else, but now…what a great feeling to be rid of the overwhelming overabundance and living the life of my dreams! And now we do feel so free without the encumbrances of a mortgage, big utility bills and maintenance costs, and the strain of living our golden years in a large house.

Pat downsized from a 1200 square foot house with three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a garage to a 235 square foot tiny home that she designed and supervised the construction of and lived in with her husband and a 35-pound dog, Annie until a recent fire  destroyed their tiny hame,

They safely got out of the hame with the clothes on their back and thankfully, many neighbors pitched in a helped and set up a Go Fund Me account.

The greatest casualty was that she thought she was insured but she was not. Pat has a lot of wisdom regarding insurance that she wants to pass on after this unfortunate incident.
