Trailersteading is the title of Anna's new Ebook, which will be available for free today.

All the advantages of a Tiny House at a fraction of the cost!

Trailersteading profiles nine mobile-home dwellers who have used trailers as a stepping stone toward achieving their dreams.  Some have spent the cash they saved by renovating their trailer on extra insulation, pitched roofs, classy interiors, and even basements, while the found money has allowed others to go off the grid.  Many also took advantage of the low-cost housing option to pursue their passions, becoming full-time homemakers or homesteaders.

Anna Hess and Mark Hamilton used an old, throw-away trailer to jump start their homesteading dream. You can read about it on their homesteading blog. It helped to keep their expenses low while they figured out a way to earn a living in rural Appalachia. They make and sell a new kind of chicken waterer that conserves water and helps to return some of the joy back to backyard chicken keeping.
