Earlier this summer I said good-bye to #DukeTheTravelTrailer. I briefly explained my reasonings for moving out in this recent post, but it was time for a new adventure. My parents and I had been discussing the opportunity of investing in the Austin market and it seemed like a good time to finally . . .
Whether you live in a small, tiny or large space, organizing your stuff (and keeping it organized!) is paramount. Clutter can make a space of any size feel impossibly small. Investing in useful storage solutions can make all the difference when living in a home of any size, but especially living . . .
Ok, so you've made the big decision to downsize. (YAY!) But that's as far as you've gotten. The next step? Your Tiny House Budget, aka how the heck are you gonna pay for all this! Obviously a big upside to downsizing is the ease on finances, but there are a lot of unforeseen upfront costs to going . . .
Whenever we first mention to people we live in a trailer, people are first a bit shocked (I might go as far as to say confused?)... then totally intrigued. I actually have to catch myself sometimes, picking and choosing when to tell people so I don't get bombarded with questions or take away focus. . . .

In 2015 we saw a huge uptick in high-waisted shorts, platforms and wide leg jeans…the same exact looks that were . . .
When most people think about their dream bathroom...'tiny' is not exactly the first word that comes to mind. Our bathroom officially measures a solid 5 by 5 sq.ft. Yup. That's it. It is definitely, by any definition, a tiny bathroom. And it gets the job done. Overall it hasn't been an issue at . . .
How in the world has it already been almost 3 months since we moved into #DukeTheTravelTrailer?! RV living is definitely different than what I envisioned, but not necessarily in a bad way. We've had a few hiccups and challenges the past month, but overall, we're having a great experience living our . . .
I can't believe it's coming up on one month living in the trailer! Time is really difficult to get a grasp on currently. I feel like we just started talking about wanting to travel, downsize and figure out what truly makes us happy. And here we are as I prepare to give you a tiny living update! I . . .
Ok...it wasn't as much a 'demolition' as much as a 'gentle removal'. But it was still thrilling. We spent the first few real hours bonding with Duke by violating him. Our remodel to-do list is pretty extensive and we needed a blank slate to work with. All the ridiculous valances and excessive . . .
Last week we officially picked up #DukeTheTravelTrailer! He (we're having a bit of an issue currently with gender assignment. Jason keeps referring to it as a 'she' even though we've I have already named it Duke. It's quite the Caitlyn Jenner situation) is a 2012 Jayco Flight 33' Travel Trailer. It . . .
