But then I realized I could share it with one of the people who follow my channel, the reason the award exists in the first place! I wanted to give the award to someone who would find it really meaningful.

I have simplified my life down to just 44 possessions. Everything I own is sitting in front of me in this photo.

Welcome to my tiny house in Orlando, Florida where I live simply and sustainably!
I built this tiny house along with friends for under $1,500, with nearly 100% secondhand materials and while creating near zero waste- just 30 pounds of trash! This setup allows me to live simply so that I can dedicate my time to the service of others and the earth. It also serves as a demonstration site for those who desire to live simply and sustainably.
