I just checked my little bucket list I have going on and realized that this little house is going to help me check of SO many things, there is one more reason this is suited for me.  Here is my list, the bold items are going to be achieved or can be achieved through this little tiny house study:

I have been trying to put together a ‘life list’ (yet another great idea inspired by Erica :).  I was shocked how fast it went but also how it slowed down so fast!  The goal is to list 150 things that you want to do in your lifetime, essentially a bucket-list I suppose… It was a pretty fun process to go through and obviously I have a lot more to come up with, rather than forcing it and adding silly little things just to get to 150 I decided I will post this and gradually build on it as more ideas come to me 🙂

One hundred and fifty things I want to do in my lifetime:

From the most simple,
to the most extravagant,
to the utterly ridiculous,
