Tiny Living Spaces 10/5/2012

As far as I can remember, I have always had issues with living in large spaces.  I've always felt it was such of waste of space.  Heating and cooling an entire home in rooms that I hardly use is one of my biggest pet peeves.

About four years ago I sold one of my Scions and bought a 32 ft travel trailer.  That's when I downsized and moved from a 1,220 sq ft home to a 358 sq ft home.  I lived in it for about two years.  The trailer was still too big.  Now I'm back in my townhouse of 1,220 sq ft.

I was okay for two years, but now I have a bad case of the hitch itch.  Wanting to move and wanting to move into something smaller.

For many years I was interested in getting a tiny house on a trailer like this one...

The bad part about this is that I would have to worry about getting a truck to move it when I get ready.   Then I started dreaming about a 25 ft one of these...

and one of these...

Now I've decided on something even smaller....

or one of these...

or this one....

Yep...a van would be perfect.  Instead of living in my home, I would be living out of my home.  When the neighbors get on my last nerve with their inconsiderate noise, I can move.  Where to?  Anywhere I want!!!  Of course, since I'm mechanically challenged, I'd have to get something made in 2007 or newer.

The other day I found a new way to search for things on Craigslist.  It's called http://www.searchtempest.com/ .  You can search for anything and it pulls results from Craigslist from the entire country.  Pretty awesome site.

I am working very hard to get debt free by the end of next year.  Then I will probably turn over my townhouse to an agency that will take charge of renting it out for me....or I will sell it.  Either way, I'll be 56 in two months, time seems to be flying and I think it's high time for me to do what ever I have to do, to get happy....don't you think?
