Dear Tiny House Swoon. I traveled across the United States, from Florida to Montana, to serve my country as an AmeriCorps VISTA at Potomac School in Potomac, Montana. In the small town of Potomac, MT housing is limited and challenging for a girl on a tight budget. After six months of sharing abodes with generous families, the perfect “tiny” housing arrangement fell into my hands. Thanks to a talented log builder, the school’s secretary, and a loving out of state family looking for a renter, I was able to settle down in this cozy cabin. Not only did I gain the perfect rental agreement, but I also gained a loving boyfriend after moving in and getting to know the builder.
