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.

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!
