If you’ve been contemplating the idea of downsizing into a smaller home – or if you’re one of those people who thinks that’s just an impossible idea – then you’re definitely going to want to see this video.
And if you’ve never heard of a “TED Talk” before, that’s yet another reason to watch this video too…. TED is a non-profit company that brings forward ideas that will make you look at the world just a little differently, through videos that are usually 15 minutes long or less.
In this video, Andrew Morrison acknowledges all the reasons why you should consider downsizing. And how that will improve your life in the short and long-term. It’s a gem of a video, so just press play below and you can thank me later.
Andrew Morrison has been a professional builder for 20 years and has been teaching people how to build their own homes in his hands on workshops since 2004. In that time he has personally taught over 1,400 participants how to hand craft their own homes and has seen again and again that anyone with passion and perseverance can build theirs too. Andrew and his family’s personal experience with tiny housing came while living in the “American Dream” home. Frustrated by feeling like slaves to it, they got rid of 90% of their worldly belongings, bought a pop up tent trailer and spent nearly five months reassessing what “home” meant to them while living in Mexico.
