When I first started building tiny houses I could not imagine the sense of community that prevails amongst tiny house dwellers. Since then I have met so many nice people that I share a bond with. When I go to tiny house shows to exhibit the houses I build, I do so for that purpose, but it is also to a large extent to see my friends in the community and to get to spend some time with them. I know this is true because when I don't go to one of the larger shows, it makes me sad on some level. Case in point, there is a large show taking place outside of New Orleans this weekend. I would love to be there, but the logistics of going to that show after having just been to the one in FL are just not possible.
Social media of course makes all of that worse since people will be posting pictures and videos and all that serves as a constant reminder that I'm not there. <sigh>
What's my point in telling you all this? I want you to know that it may seem like you are going it alone when you first set out to go tiny. What I want you to realize is that there is a whole community out there that is willing to assist you with advice and guidance. Many people (like myself) only discover that after they start building their tiny house. I think that it makes more sense to know this before you take the step towards building or buying your own tiny house.
