Tiny House Links

In a culture over-exhausted from consumerism and the constant grind of daily life, this Movement & the idea that we could do it too came as a great relief to both of us. We started to see that this is totally normal behavior! It’s safe and legal and it is happening everywhere. Be the first one on your block to have one of these in your driveway!

Here are some folks who have inspired us and pioneered the movement in some way:

Jay Schafer’s story was my first introduction to the Tiny House Movement. Aaron had been talking about living in a tiny house for a while, but I thought he was nuts to think that we could live is such a small space! Does he not realize how much “stuff” I have!?

Jay’s has been called “The Guru of the Tiny House Movement”

While living at the Eco-Village, I came across this video which became my Ah-ha moment. Thank you to Joanna & Collin for the inspiration to take the leap & learn to live with less!

Founder of Shelter Publications, Lloyd Kahn, put together an incredible collection of people who are building tiny structures all across the country. His book, TINY HOMES Simple Structures, is filled with photos and stories of people creating small homes, artist studios & man caves using a wide range of materials, most of which are salvaged / recycled / re-purposed. Here is a long list of our favorites in order to give you an idea of what others are doing as well as proving that we are not the only two people crazy enough to build & live in a structure that is less than 200 sq/ft!
