It all started with a phone call in the fall of 2009. My mom, who had been living in a mobile home near Tampa Florida, had called to tell me that her health was declining. Her house, which had been severely damaged by hurricane Joanne, was beginning to grow mold due to a roof leak. And the mold was causing my mother to develop respiratory problems.
I knew that something had to be done, but I wasn’t entirely sure what. I wanted to get her a new house, but unfortunately that wasn’t an option as we just didn't have enough money. I also didn’t want to replace her mobile home with another one, only to be in a similar situation one or two hurricane seasons later. We both felt stuck.
In the midst of researching a solution, I happened to watch a show on PBS that profiled a college student who had built a tiny house to be her new home while she completed grad school. I was instantly fascinated and hooked on tiny houses. I knew that this was the solution for my mom that I had been searching for.
