Casa de la Esperanza

Our goal was to be able to live 4 months a year in Uganda, Africa Africa Family Rescue. One of the last steps we have taken is to build a tiny home. This will help us have almost no expenses here in the US while we live in Uganda. We have sold our 2,800 sq. ft. home to move to Africa, then came back so our daughter could finish High School, and have been in our 1,100 square feet apartment. But we are very excited to have made the last step, moving into our 190 square feet tiny home! This home is built on wheels and is considered an RV.

    “Casa de Esperanza” is correct. “Casa De La Esperanza” is incorrect. Someone please pass it along to them.

    Thanks for sharing pictures of your darling home. God bless you and your work in Uganda. What work are you involved in when you are in the states?

    “Casa de la esperanza” is 100% correct and means home of hope, “Casa de Esperanza” is also correct, though it kind of suggest it is the house of somebody called “Esperanza”, which can happen. So if the meaning is the first, as a Spanish person, I would go for the first version.

    Just wanted to know where you park it while you are out of town. I live in the Frisco area and cannot find any place that accept Tiny Houses in the RV parks. Thanks.

    Nice to see a genuinely lived-in TH. Your wife did a great job of decorating, and kudos to Tennessee Tiny Homes: they have built quite a few by now, and their experience really shows.

    Uganda’s suffered terribly, and I applaud your helping people who don’t deserve to suffer this way. I am concerned, though, about the vicious persecution of gays there, including beatings and kidnapping, encouraged by some pastors such as Martin Ssempa,and a paper I’m sure you’re familiar with, the Red Pepper, which outs gays specifically to endanger them.

    I hope your church stands against such persecution and for human rights for all the citizens of Uganda.

    Easily one of the most livable TH I’ve ever seen! Great decor, everything you need, etc. I love the kitchen!
