Tiny Houses & Your Lover: Convincing, Waiting or Meeting in Between?


I want you to meet Chris & Kristen. They’re a young couple who are building a tiny house on blocks. They’re still in the construction phase so be sure to add them to your watch list. Instead of building on wheels they decided to build on blocks. And they can always move it later or maybe even attach it to a trailer if they really wanted to.

Making a Deal with your Spouse/Significant Other on Building a Tiny House

But what I really wanted you to read was how they got to the point to where they decided to start building a tiny home. I always find it fascinating the way that we have to sometimes convince our significant others to go for the lifestyle. And this is one of the best blog posts I’ve read on that topic (if you have more, please share the links in the comments).

Convincing your Partner and Meeting Somewhere In Between

Chris could have gone even smaller than what they’re building right now considering he’s lived out of a van before. Kristen wasn’t willing to go that far. So they had to meet in between.

And meeting in between looks different for everybody. So please don’t compare your situation to others because they’re all unique..

Anyways do yourself a favor and read this entire post on how Chris & Kristen made a decision on starting their tiny house project.

Your Thoughts on Couples Living in Tiny Houses

Then if you want share your thoughts and ideas on how you’ve had to convince, be patient, or simply meet in-between with your significant other and your tiny house dreams. We’d all love for you to share in the comments.

You’re Pretty Lucky, If..

One thing I think is fair to say is this, if you love tiny houses and are in a relationship with someone who’s also down to live tiny (shout out to Chris & Malissa!), you can consider yourself pretty lucky! So go give your partner a big hug when you see him/her next! (Actually I think you should probably do that whether or not they wanna live tiny with you.) 😀

I thought you would find this story interesting because it’s about 3 couples that are group building Tumbleweed tiny houses together.

I honestly can’t think of a better way to learn and do this. It’s better than a workshop because it’s a real experience. And you’re committed to the end.

AND you have constant and never ending support from each other from start to finish. So here’s a little bit about what they’re doing and what they’ve already done.
