About Lindsay

247869_610937738869_4225154_nHi, I’m Lindsay; a  very curious 30-something.  I have an insatiable appetite for knowledge. From pop-culture trivia to the science behind how animals think; from style to travel and everything in between. With all that flying around in my head, I am actively seeking a more simple life; one that allows me to fully experience each thought in my head, each place I travel, and each person in my life.

I am Maryland born and bred, but I married a Texan and have lived in the Lone Star state for the past five years.  My husband, Jared, and I both love to laugh and create and do so with the encouragement of our two rescue dogs, Bogie and Griff, and wonderful families.

We are in the process of simplifying life by building the Tiny House of our dreams.  This blog will be all about the journey- peppered, of course, with some of the random things that spark my curiosity- to a simplified life and the experiences that allows us to have.

“The price of anything is the amount of life you exchange for it.”

-Henry David Thoreau

  1. Lindsey,
    Now that you’ve been in your house for a while, how do you like it? I’m interested in using your builder but am concerned by the delays you experienced. Hind sight, would you use them again now that you have your home? Your assistance is greatly appreciated!

    • Hello Carmen- thanks so much for reading and what a great question. We have now been in our house for little over a month- and I promise I am getting ready to post an update with pictures- we are really loving tiny living but we have had a lot of projects keeping us busy. Some of the projects we did on our own- finishing our dog run and shed for our water tank. Some projects have been some fixes to the actual house- weather stripping on the front door that was falling off, some leaking sink connectors, and a few holes we had to caulk to keep the house insulated and warm. Also, our shower is not working properly but they have promised to come up and take a look at it in two weeks. The house that we had built for us truly is beautiful but if you chose to work with our builders I would advise you to be very specific every step of the way. I think our builder learned what is a more appropriate timeline for them The delays were very frustrating on our end, but it was only their second build and the first for someone else so I do understand that they bit off more than they could chew for the time frame they gave themselves. But there were pieces of our design- from outlet placement to the specific appliances we picked out and even to the sub floor/insulation that even though they were in our ‘plans’ didn’t translate to our house. Be explicit and follow up- they aren’t always the best at communicating. I hope that helps a bit and if you have any more specific questions I am happy to give you my email address!
