Taylor with One Call Logistics – A transportation specialist who enjoys the tiny house movement community while helping deliver the final result. As soon as I stepped foot in the Logistics industry I knew I made the right decision. Moving different commodities all over the country is super interesting, but it wasn't until I stepped into arranging tiny house transportation that I knew this was going to be amazing. From learning the different style builders, customers, and backgrounds to setting up the actual transport and seeing the tinies get delivered across the states. The best feeling is helping someone get their tiny home, home.

Tiny House Decisions

But before we get to that, I want to let you know that Tiny House Decisions Print Edition is Finally Here!

Yes, you read that right. If you've been following me for a while you know that I have been very reluctant to release Tiny House Decisions in print form. It's long, it's in full color, and it's expensive to print and ship.

Well, after years of requests from readers I finally figured it out and have everything set up!

The print edition of Tiny House Decisions is a gorgeous, full-color 8.5″ x 11″ paperback that's fit for your desk or coffee table.

It can be added on at checkout when you purchase the digital edition of Tiny House Decisions, which is what I recommend. That way, you get the digital guide which comes with free updates for life, the Tiny House Decisions workbook, and other extras.

I'm offering $10 off when you add the print copy on to your order, Shipping is free within the USA. There are less than 10 copies left in the initial run, so head over to thetinyhousenet/thd to get your copy today!
