Hello New Here
Hello everyone. You can call me Messenger.
A little about me:
I'm college student who's been in community college a little too long, but I love learning. I'm disability benefits. There's pros and cons to this. I love making things and I have a dream to live a simple life with my simple income.
About my dream:
It was a few years ago that I came across Tiny Homes on the inter-webs. I don't remember exactly what brought me to it, but I was fascinated. Ever since I've want to build one. So I showered for plans. And found two I like. Started planning my floor plan. Yeah...
There's two big drawbacks:
1. My income is low, I'm talking less than $1000 a month.
2. Since I'm on SSI, I can't have more than $2000 in savings. I find this ridiculous, because even if I make my own money I still can't have more than $2000 in savings.
So my stich:
A new trailer costs about $4000. I'm not sure about used ones, because of the potential need to modify and or repair them before one can start building. Though I'd love to make a Tiny Home this way.
This is why I'm here.
In my search/research about Tiny Homes, I came across school bus conversions as well as using other vehicles to make Tiny Homes. The bus conversions cought my I, because the cost of the used school bus can be around that $2000 mark and in running order. Also, one has the shell of the home already buil.
So here I am still in the planing...dream stage. I hope I can find the help I need to get started planing.
