Jessie Wright wants the American dream. She just wants it smaller.
Virginia Harold Jessie Wright, her boyfriend Joe and their son, August.
Wright is building a new house for her family -- a place of their own, a true home, she says -- but this isn't your typical house. Wright, her boyfriend and their baby August will move into a "micro house," 190 square feet of space built onto a 25-foot trailer.
"All the principles of happiness are broken into only having the amount of stuff you can handle," Wright tells Daily RFT. She's updating followers on her tiny house adventure on her blog, This Tiny House Family. "I've gotten used to having fewer things. Our kitchen is down to 100 most useful objects."
