Living Legally: Begging Forgiveness vs. Asking Permission with Sarah Hastings – #099

Rather than flying under the radar, Sarah decided to be public about her tiny house and the consequences and resulting actions didn't go the way that she had hoped. This is an important and instructive story for anyone hoping to live tiny legally. I initially met Sarah Hastings at the Big Mass Tiny House Festival, where she was a star participant in the panel discussion on building a tiny house with salvaged materials (episode 094). Sarah's story of going up against the town she lived in and ultimately being forced to leave is why I've asked her back on the show for her own interview.

Andrew Odom is one of the original online tiny housers who started sharing his building journey as it was happening all the way back in 2010. He inspired me while I was building my tiny house, both through his writing and also just by being a really friendly, approachable person who was there to help answer my questions. While Andrew doesn't live tiny anymore, there's a lot to learn from his story. Plus, he has stayed involved in the tiny house movement through organizing tiny house events and festivals and working as the managing editor of Tiny House Magazine.
