Merry Meet! My name is Alexis Monkhouse, I am a graduate student studying Applied Anthropology, I am a 25 years old, and I am a tiny home owner! I bought my tiny house in 2018 after suffering two terrible losses. After my life was turned upside down, I looked around and realized that I had all this stuff and was unhappy. So began my tiny house journey and my journey to live more with less. Soon after the tiny house build started, I found out I was pregnant with my baby girl. Talk about the roller coaster of life! After she was born I found myself a single mom, in a tiny house with NO idea what I was doing.

And that’s where we are right now! I can’t say my life is perfect, but I am the happiest I have ever been!

I started this blog to share my journey because 1) I think its super fun and beautiful and 2) I wanted to show the joy of tiny house living and that it is possible with kids! Plus I’m unemployed and have wayy too much time on my hands

I love reading (entirely too much) and recently have taken up photography! I am scuba certified and have seen every episode of house hunters Hulu has (#noshame)
