Who are these runaways?
Luise is a certified media designer for digital and print products and currently works as a full-time web manager for a local newspaper. Originally from Germany (she moved to the USA in July 2010) she’s blessed or cursed (depends on the point of view) with a nerve-wracking amount of meticulousness and determination of what she wants. She enjoys writing and photography and hopes to have more time to pursue these passions once our life in the tiny house begins!
Shawn is employed as a full-time arborist (tree climber) at a local tree care company. He does not only love plants, trees and animals, but also knows astonishingly much about them. After contemplating the idea of living simply for a long time, he started convincing Luise in 2012.
Last but not least, the most important member of our group: Sophie, the Australian Shepherd. She’s the most photogenic one of us, loves to explore the world and is always up for a new adventure. She’s pretty, cute, smart, clumsy, nosy, crazy, affectionate, fluffy and sneaky – just to mention a few of her characteristics.
None of us has any experience in construction, or carpentry, or roofing, or plumbing, but we are determined to get our Runaway Shanty completed one way or the other.
