  1. I’m new. Will call eventually. Thanks for doing this. All of it. We have to start somewhere. I am not as young as you. I am not about to retire. I am not planning on going small or tiny because of retiring. I’m going tiny because the opposite is absurd. You/we must revisit this topic because rain and moisture are important, but the subject about trailer vs foundation was not truly answered. Can I help? My perspective might be worth something. I’m on FB but it doesn’t relate to this subject. But, maybe we can introduce all these peeps on my FB accounts to going smaller, leaving a positive impact on the planet.
