Biography - tell us a little about you!
"I have been a HGTV fan for many years. I started watching the tiny house shows, it was the very first time I have even heard of such a thing. I was hooked. I lived in a tiny apartment in Indianapolis and loved it. I just like tiny spaces, they are easier to clean, easier to decorate, and easier to move. I plan on retiring to Maine, and now I don’t have to start all over. I can take my Tiny with me and know that it will be a home I love. I don’t have to give up anything."
What is your favorite thing about living at Cedar Springs Tiny Village?
"My favorite thing about living at Cedar Springs Tiny Village is the surroundings. It is in a beautiful place with a beautiful view of the lake. I love all the trees and the yard is gorgeous. I really like where my house sits and even though it is in New Paris, it feels like I live in the country."
What advice would you give to a potential tiny homeowner?
"My advice it to make sure you talk to your builders so they know exactly what you want. Stick to your guns, don’t let anyone talk you out of your dreams. Ask questions about everything, even the appliances. If they don’t want to answer your questions, get another builder. I learned the hard way that the really cool washer/dryer combo (you see them on all the HGTV tiny shows) doesn’t use heat to dry, so nothing ever gets dry. I had to buy a clothes dryer and place it on top of the really cool washer/dryer combo. The builders knew this, but since I didn’t ask about it, they didn’t mention it."
