BESPIN TINY HOUSE: BUILDING OUR NEST EGG
A guest post by Maggie & Seth Campbell
The American Dream: the idea that a better life can be obtained with more money.
We seek out higher paying jobs so we can afford bigger living spaces and more possessions to fill them.
The temptation to live beyond our means grows stronger with every “low-interest” credit card offer in the mail. It’s no wonder that one in three American’s are being chased by a debt collector – we live in a buy-now-pay-later society. And boy, do we pay.
By now, you’ve probably heard that living in a cost-efficient tiny house is increasing in public favor.
Could you be a part of this growing trend?
What if you could live debt-free on your current monthly income (or less)?
Is it possible to stop working over 40 hours a week and living paycheck-to-paycheck to support a home you spend so little time in?
We think so.
In just 8 months, we've already raised over 25% of our goal - and we're just warming up.
SET YOUR INTENTIONS
For many people, building a tiny house is just a pipe dream. When the idea of building our house first came to us, we spoke about it in terms like “If we ever hit the lottery . . .” or “If we could find higher paying jobs. . . .”
As per usual, we had just enough money in the bank to pay our bills for that month. It wasn’t until we took a hard look at the cost of living in a house too large for our needs (1000 square feet) that we realized we didn’t need to earn more; we just needed to have less.
