Most tiny house dreams start with a major realization–a deep conviction to live a simple life unencumbered by material possessions. That’s what it was like for Lauren Stovall, a bluegrass musician who pursued her tiny house dream. A year of going on tours and living in a suitcase made her realize that she’s content with only having a few things in her life. This dream wouldn’t have been the same without her favorite roommate, sole companion, and best friend–Skippy, a Jack Russell.
Stovall designed her tiny house with a little help from her dad, who also built it in Mississippi. Together with Skippy and her portable tiny house, she chose to settle in Boulder Colorado, which inspired her with its picturesque downtown and miles of breathtaking nature trails just a walk away. She lives 25 minutes away from downtown, where there’s lots of wide open space for hikes with Skippy.
