Making A List Captures Home Priorities

Making A List Captures Home Priorities

We posted about April and Keith's tiny house build a few weeks ago and through their story, they expressed the main reasons for why and how they chose their tiny house direction. A list of priorities was made that captured both physical and emotional resources that were important to the couple and we agree - making this list is important. Check out a few tips for making your list after the jump.

1) Divide physical wants and your emotional wants to make this more manageable. If you want 3 bedrooms, that goes on the physical list. Wanting to share a small home because you get along well, that is more emotional.

2) Nothing is too crazy to consider - what's right for you, is right for you.

3) When looking for a home together, their may be certain things each person wants to have. In this case, really communicate rationally what you want and why and then look for a compromise.

4) Put together a mood board of images, magazine scraps and photos to describe your ideal home, including colors, textures, pictures from a trip. This can help showcase what really is important. If you end up having tons of greenery, then you may want to add "ample outdoor space" to your physical list.

Have you made a priority list to help connect better to what you want in your home?
