Hello, my name is Isabelle. I want to live more simply, build my own house, and connect with others with a similar vision.
I have an undergraduate degree in Permaculture and Cultural Studies, and a double minor in Anthropology and Spanish. My studies have given me the fundamentals to explore the world with a cultural lens. I have worked on Organic farms, studied midwifery and attended births as a doula in Guatemala and the U.S. I have backpacked both in the backcountry and front-country as an avid world traveler. I have an insatiable curiosity for life and this is where it has led me.
I’ve created this site as a means of expression and a way to contribute my process of building a tiny house to a broader community. Not only will it have content related to tiny houses and micro-living, but it will reach further to explore sustainable living, permaculture, DIY lifestyle, the back-to-the-land movement, and other topics relating to a natural way of life. I fully believe that simplistic living is a resilient solution to an uncertain future.
In addition to this blog and my tiny house, Holly Hursley will be making a film titled Isabelle Road that partially highlights my process and the people who I connect with along the way. Many of the photos and video clips on the blog were shot by her. Link to her website on my contact page.
