is this just a dumb dream?
I'm a soon to be single mom and I was really excited about the idea of tiny house living. I am in a house now that I soon won't be able to afford and a trip to Home Depot one day spurred an idea that became a little dream/obsession. I found a two story "shed" there and my mind started spinning that night of how I could turn that shed into a home, a home that could be paid for in a year and then I could still be a SAHM to my kids, only working weekends, and not have the financial struggle.
Well, when I really started getting excited about the idea and talking about it I was immediately "shot down." I guess I'm just naive, but I did not understand that there would be restrictions on the size home I could have and the number of kids I could put in it.
So, what is the work around here? I don't have specifics from my town office yet, but apparently the shed I had in mind would not be suitable. There are restrictions on room size. So could I not just put up walls and have it be a huge room? IDK what I'm asking here...I guess just, how do I get started? How does one actually do this small living thing?
My dream saw me in a two story shed with solar panels and a composting toilet - kind of off grid, but now I don't know what to think.
