Hey there, tiny house enthusiasts! We are Faheem and Begum, the adventurous couple behind ToGaze, your go-to resource for all things tiny living and off-grid.

Nestled in our cozy tiny house, we embrace the simple life while navigating the joyful chaos of raising our mischievous 3-year-old son. Faheem, an automation engineer, ex-military officer, and passionate writer, brings his technical expertise and storytelling skills to the table.

Begum, a chemistry teacher, adds her scientific perspective and love for experimentation to our off-grid endeavors. Living in a tiny house for over a decade has transformed the toughest challenges into incredible adventures.

Our journey began with a shared dream of living minimally, sustainably, and intentionally. We traded in the hustle and bustle of city life for the tranquility of a smaller footprint, and we haven’t looked back since.

From building our tiny home to cultivating our thriving garden, we’ve learned invaluable lessons along the way, and we’re excited to share them with you.
