Hi Leon - welcome to the site. How wonderful that you're designing your tiny house - the ones I've seen and read about are amazing in how functional and creative they can be. Look forward to hearing more about that as you go through the process.

As mentioned in another post, there is a lot of information on this site about small (and larger) blocks and the degree that people achieve a level of self-sustainability. Much has been covered in previous posts so take a good look at the archives and the Lifestyle Files section. This will help define any questions so that we can help you as much as possible. In my experience forum members are very friendly and willing to share their experiences, contacts and suggestions, so I'm sure you'll get some very helpful answers to questions.

Cheers, Mich.

Fortunes can be made from a small area, but you have to find something that no-one has and everyone wants ..... and then change to another "not have but want" just before everyone else gets into it. A very few fortunes have been made, but mostly losses. Examples are angora goats, boer goats, deer, wasabi, tea, ostriches and emus, llamas and alpacas, rabbit farming, various fungi including truffles, tobacco, hops, race horses. Something that has only been done in a small way but has potential is snail farming if you could make a grape leaf and herb pellet that they would thrive on all year round.
So, welcome and good luck, but don't expect any income until it actually arrives.
