Seeing ACL’s story Cottage in a Day instantly brought my wife’s cousin to mind– Dee Williams. Dee definitely moves to the beat of her own drum.
From Time— A few years ago, Dee Williams, a toxic-waste inspector, put her 2,000-sq.-ft. bungalow in Portland, Ore., on the market and moved into an 84-sq.-ft. cabin on wheels that she built using salvaged cedar, torn-up jeans for insulation and solar cells for power. Then she hitched her tiny house to a biodiesel truck and drove to Olympia, Wash., where friends let her park in a grassy corner of their backyard. Although Williams, 43, admits that she misses having room for friends to spend the night, she says, “I love my tiny house.”

This definitely reduces one’s carbon footprint– but I would absolutely need a 2nd (and quite possibly even a 3rd) trailer to tow behind– just for my Fall wardrobe. None of my denim went towards insulation, btw.
