Let’s not only make a personal impact in our daily lives, but let’s take our choices a step further beginning with the materials that go into our homes.
Isabelle Nagel-Brice created A Tiny Good Thing with the intent to share what she learned from building her own tiny home. She’s a certified Passive House Tradesperson and Sustainable Homes Professional, with a background in Permaculture and Anthropology, which have given her the fundamentals to explore the world with a cultural and ecological lens.
Her insatiable curiosity for all parts of life drew her to the idea of building her own house. She did not know where she wanted to settle and realized that a tiny home could be financially feasible while living at home and building in her parent’s backyard. Her experience with natural building led her to choose materials with the entire lifecycle of her house in mind. She knew that her home would be deconstructed at some point, whether in 20 years or 100 years, it would be taken down. It was hypocritical to her to build a tiny house with materials that would forever live in a landfill. Not only was the lifecycle of the house important, but she also wanted to build a house that was clean and healthy to live in. A Tiny Good Thing arose from the experience of building a house with her father for herself and her pup Luna Mae.
