“My name is Hari Berzins and I moved into a tiny house with my family in May of 2011. I began blogging as a way to share what we learn from living simply and debt-free in a tiny house as we continue to save and build our right-sized, mortgage-free home.
I write about life on our growing homestead on the blog. You can reach the topics of simplify, grow, breathe, build, remember, parent, and cultivate community using the links on the drop-down blog menu above.
In our second year of living tiny, I wrote a weekly letter to my most dedicated readers. These letters resulted in my first book, Coming Home: Letters from a Tiny House.
In April of 2012, Anderson Cooper’s producers asked us to appear on his daytime talk show Anderson. What has followed has been a bit surreal for a simple-living, homesteading family like us. As our story was shared all over the Internet and on national media outlets, the questions began pouring in. We are happy to answer questions and help others figure out how they, too, can simplify and live free from the burden of debt. Mostly, folks want to know how we managed to save for and build our micro-homestead without a mortgage.”
