Big dreams lead to groundbreaking ideas that alter and improve peoples’ lives. B.A. Norrgard’s ambitions led her to build a tiny home, and from there her dream has grown to building a tiny house community. Norrgard’s decision to move into a tiny house was motivated by her strong desire to be happier during her second stage of life. Since her relocation, she has found the comfort she was striving to achieve in her traditional home. This single decision has led Norrgard across the country inspiring people to transform their lifestyles through “conscious downsizing.”  

Tiny home living forces people to streamline material possessions and focus on the important things and activities. This unique lifestyle also creates the opportunity to reside in spaces that are environmentally friendly and mobile.
