Book Release!

Exciting news for our little cabin! Kerri Fivecoat-Campbell, of the blog Living Large in Our Little House fame, has a book about tiny house living coming out. The release date is tomorrow, June 7, 2016. And we're in the book!

Her book, "Living Large in Our Little House: Thriving in 480 Square Feet with Six Dogs, a Husband, and One Remote....Plus More Stories of How You Can Too" tells the story of how Kerri and her husband Dale came to make their life in a tiny lakeside house.

Interwoven into her story are stories of other tiny house dwellers. Our little cabin is one of those!

The book is a great read for anyone interested in downsizing, whether to a tiny house or just a smaller house or even just uncluttering the house you now live in. It's loaded with tips about paring down your possessions, organizing, holiday decorating, entertaining, and living a sustainable lifestyle. It's full of photos of tiny house life!

Kerri's story is told in an easy to read style, as if she were having a chat with friends. She doesn't sugarcoat anything but tells the challenges as well as the rewards.

She has treated our story, mine and Rick's, with kindness and care. I have to admit that I cried when I read it. Rick knew that she was writing the book and that our cabin would be included. He was very excited about it and proud that his tiny cabin would be one of the ones spotlighted. I'm glad that he knew this and wish he could see the finished book. I know he would love it and be touched by how our part of it was handled. Our story and little Texas cabin is interspersed throughout the book.

You can order the book from Amazon. Just click on the link below! We're hoping for a good release day showing, so if you plan to order, tomorrow is a good day to get in on the excitement! There have been a lot of pre-orders already and a good release day helps the publisher judge interest for additional printings. They've already ordered a second printing based on pre-orders! It's available in both a hardcover and a Kindle format.

Kerri's blog spotlighted the tiny bunkhouse this week, so check that out too! You can link to it above or here - Living Large in Our Little House - and follow her on Facebook - Living Large in Our Little House.

Thank you for your interest in our little cabin, both on my blog and in the book, and for all the kindnesses you readers have shown to me, especially as I try to go on living my life out here without Rick.

  2. You and Rick were one of my first inspirations to go tiny back when I first found your blog years ago. You will continue to be a huge inspiration to many others through this fantastic book. Thank you Sue and Kerri.
