About the Author

Joshua Engberg is one-half of the duo behind Tiny House Basics. In the summer of 2014, Joshua and his wife, Shelley, started to build their first tiny house. The goal was to simplify their lives and return to the basics. Downsizing and redefining ‘necessities’ was only the beginning. As avid campers and off-road fans, they were used to smaller spaces and only having essentials on trips. So they thought, ‘why not live like this 365 days a year?’ Moving into a Tiny House was a new challenge that brought its highs and lows. With the help of Tiny House Nation and many talented friends, they finished their self-designed 374 sqft home in 18 Days! Today they live in their tiny house full time and couldn’t be happier.
