“It made the difference like night and day.”
Many people choose tiny house living because it is a way to lessen their carbon footprint, and saves them money on monthly utilities.

Comfort isn’t always the biggest problem in a home – sometimes it’s when the monthly energy bills show up.

For three years the Thrall family lived in their Jackson, Michigan home dealing with walls so cold it felt like they were outside. The furnace ran non-stop, gas bills were through the roof, and the Consumers Energy bill was about double the mortgage. The home would get so cold in the winter it was impossible for Betty Jo to even have plants.
