  • Hi Lulu,
    I have really enjoyed reading about you and your family in your beautiful home!! I am in the process of simplifying my life and have drawn great inspiration from you. I come from a family of “collectors”, glassware, antiques, as well as a myriad of junk!! Through having to assist my family with clearing out relative’s dwellings, and recently loosing my significant other to addiction and suicide, I have decided to make some life changes. I am systematically selling, donating, or discarding anything that is not necessary in my day to day life. I purchased a 21′ vintage camper for $1500 and am refurbishing and decorating it to my liking and found a space to park it next to a creek. I will have electricity and water but I hope to go solar when I can afford it. My philosophy is …….. if it doesn’t fit in the camper, it’s gone:) Thank you for sharing your story!

    I too am trying to simplify my life. I am in the process of selling my home and moving somewhere that is smaller as I have a back problem and can no longer take care of what I have. I have also lost my ability to work and am now on disability which means that my income is about 1/4 what it was before. Needless to say I can no longer afford any house payments. I am in need of advise if you have any. Please feel free to share.

    Oh Lulu, what a lovely place and house! I envy how you enjoy in your tiny house!! I like every much a small house like yours, in a lonely place.

    I am a senior and like to retire in a residence like that.

    Hello Lulu,

    My name is Carmen Pla. I getting ready to start building my own home, for reasons very similar to your own. Through my research I have found that a container home would be the best (affordable) option. Your video was great but I would like to ask you a few more details. Please feel free to email me when you can. Thank you!

    Good afternoon Lulu,
    Loved what you did with the house. So what are your plans for it?
    I am working on my own thoughts and plans for my home. One of my plans was separate buildings like that.
    It looks to be a great plan and lots of fun.
    I look forward to hear what you have going on with it all.

    Have a great weekend
