  • In 60 seconds, what is Kitchen Simplicity?

    Our Skoolie

  • The TV shows about tiny houses are huge. People are flocking to tiny house festivals to walk through tiny houses, skoolies, box trucks, yurts, Airstreams, etc… Why do you think so many people are interested in going tiny? What’s the appeal?
  • You and your husband and dog moved into your first tiny home in the fall of 2014, what was your home like and where did you park it?
  • I believe you’re working on a Skoolie now. (A skoolie is a bus that is converted into a home.) Why did you choose to do a skoolie rather than a tiny house this time?
  • What was the hardest part about going tiny for you? What part did you find most challenging?

Kitchen Simplicity Cover 11202017The cover shows a tiny house made of fruits and vegetables, is there a story there?

  • You talk about purposeful simplicity in the book and in the last chapter you mention Materialism. What do you think of materialism?

  • What is your favorite kitchen tool and why?
  • Would you read a passage from the book?
  • What did you have for breakfast this morning?
