What defines home for each of us is incredibly personal and more often than not comes from a place of love.

Home represents a beautiful spectrum of meanings. Each meaning is valid. Nothing is more intimate than one's homea place, a structure, a feeling, a state of mind... For us, home is a sense of community. A feeling of belonging and security. A place of our own, where we can be our best selves. It's our cozy tiny home; it's simply being together.

We carry home with us, the essence of what home means to us. When we stop, what’s inside begins to manifest outside of ourselves.
— Vince Cannino, Habitat for Humanity of Forsyth County

There’s nothing like building or living in an unconventional house to make you reconsider the idea of what makes home, home. The meaning of home is very personal and goes beyond the physical structure. Home is a state of mind. Even those with no roof over their heads can have sense of home.

Home can be anywhere. Where my family is, but what is family? Home is where you can be yourself, surrounded by loved ones whether friends or family, to find comfort.

After a serendipitous meeting with author, Susan Schaefer Bernardo, she was inspired to write a children's book based on our salvage-built tiny home on wheels and all our Tiny House Expedition adventures.

"An old farmhouse that gets recycled into something new: TINY, a little house with a big heart – and WHEELS! "

The Big Adventures of Tiny House is a story of adventure and community, and most importantly a fresh take on the meaning of home. Susan and Courtenay beautifully capture the spirit of the tiny house movement— a pioneering lifestyle centered around meaningful experiences and friendships, and adorably charming to boot. This is sure to become a classic, beloved by tiny house enthusiasts of all ages!

He could be a home anywhere, because home wasn’t a place.
Home was a feeling, a smile on your face.
Home was friendship and singing and a full happy heart -
it was sharing good meals and where you hung up your art.
Whether you dropped your anchor
or decided to roam,
what called to your heart
could still be called home.
