395 square feet of living .Thoughts on mortgage free America .

As I sit in my 395 square feet of air conditioned furnished mobile living space I ponder long term living here. At a fraction of the space I am used to living in its very efficient use space just a whole lot less. Can I fit everything in here I want to keep with me? I really feel like the bigger house is a waste of space for us now cost of maintaining and heating as well as payments and taxes insurance . What am I really housing here anyway? A lot of stuff I don’t use daily ,weekly or even monthly. I will save lots of money if I’m in an rv park I can live for $4000 to $5000 a year that’s $10 to $14 dollars a day ! Compared to $55 a day now.not counting repairs.

My new address will be 30 seconds from the beach ! I like that ! There will be lots to do kayaking , sailing,diving,biking , hiking, clamming , fishing campfires on the beach. I could buy a lot about a mile from the water and set up camp more permanently. With a yard and more privacy it would pay for its self in 6 or 7 years. I could spread out more and have some indoor out door living . Now the kids and grand kids can visit easier. Overall I’ll be debt free and my cost of living will be a fraction of what it was leaving me with a lot more time and money in an area I can explore for years to come.Eventually I can build a small cottage ( 400 square feet or so )and keep the r.v. For a guest house.

I am not telling you all this to brag but to show what’s possible if your interested in a Change . Thanks for listening I hope this inspires you to take action for yourself . Get out of the rat race and as always this brought to you from the people for a mortgage free America .

  1. Thank you so much for making all of your videos and write-ups! This is helping a lot with our planning of the off-grid cabin.

    Incase anyone out there needs to prove to themselves that this is do-able. I found the best way to prove to myself how much I would save by living in the woods off-grid (Still with solar and water, etc.) was by making a monthly budget for living in our apartment (average of Jan, July , Sept) and compare it to an over estimated budget for living off-grid in a small cabin built by us.

    It’s amazing that it was still cheaper to live off-grid in the woods in nature away from the tension of city life. This was including: buying land and a second-hand 4×4 truck, building a cabin that uses solar power, all of the fuel required to build and travel back and forth to the city for my job and Tasha’s job.

    Just recently Tasha and I have put our plans in motion to get out of cities for at least 6 months every year.

    Thanks again Kevin!


  2. Kevin, I went through the process of downsizing some years ago. Though I owned a large home at the time, I knew that I mostly used a small portion of my home to “live in”. Too, I wanted to change my lifestyle. I sold my home, bought a travel trailer (now replaced with a tiny home on wheels!) and began working from my laptop to generate an income. I have never had such a terrific lifestyle, had more money or been more flexible. I am sure others who make the change will be very grateful they did. There is simply no reason to be a slave to the mortgage company.

  3. Kevin, I would love to try this. I’m hearing that getting beach property for something like this is becoming more difficult. Any advice?
