"I began building tiny houses back in 2009 when I built one for my mom. The house she was living in was starting to fall apart and become unlivable, so I knew I had to find her alternative housing. After researching various options I discovered the tiny house movement and realized that it was the perfect solution for her. A tiny house could be constructed to very high standards and still be affordable, plus it can be easily moved"--Author

Tiny House, Large Lifestyle! Tiny homes are popping up across America, captivating people with their novel approach not only to housing, but to life. Once considered little more than a charming oddity, the tiny house movement continues to gain momentum among those who thirst for a simpler, "greener," more meaningful life in the face of society's "more is better" mindset. This book explores the philosophies behind the tiny house lifestyle, helps you determine whether it's a good fit for you, and guides you through the transition to a smaller space. For inspiration, you'll meet tiny house pioneers and hear how they built their dwellings (and their lives) in unconventional, creative and purposeful ways. They'll invite you in, show you around their cozy abodes, and share lessons they learned along the way. Inside you'll find everything you need to design a tiny home of your own: • Worksheets and exercises to help you home in on your true needs, define personal goals, and develop a tiny house layout that's just right for you. • Practical strategies for cutting through clutter and paring down your possessions. • Guidance through the world of building codes and zoning laws. • Design tricks for making the most of every square foot, including multi-function features and ways to maximize vertical space. • Tours of 11 tiny houses and the unique story behind each. Tiny House Living is about distilling life down to that which you value most...freeing yourself from clutter, mortgages and home maintenance...and, in doing so, making more room in everyday life for the really important things, like relationships, passions and community. Whether you downsize to a 400-square-foot home or simply scale back the amount of stuff you have in your current home, this book shows you how to live well with less.

Part how-to, part personal memoir, The Big Tiny is an utterly seductive meditation on the benefits of slowing down, scaling back, and appreciating the truly important things in life. More than ten years ago, a near-death experience abruptly reminded sustainability advocate and pioneer Dee Williams that life is short. So, she sold her sprawling home and built an eighty-four-square-foot house—on her own, from the ground up. Today, Williams can list everything she owns on one sheet of paper, her monthly housekeeping bills amount to about eight dollars, and it takes her about ten minutes to clean the entire house. Adapting a new lifestyle left her with the ultimate luxury—more time to spend with friends and family—and gave her the freedom to head out for adventure at a moment’s notice, or watch the clouds and sunset while drinking a beer on her (yes, tiny) front porch.

People who support this movement are happy to live in a downsized home -- their tiny house is a lifestyle that they adopt/adapt and are happy in doing so. While one might argue the disadvantages of living in a tiny space, the financial freedom that it brings along cannot be disregarded. The average size of a house in the United States of America was 1,500 square feet in the 1950's; now, when the family sizes are shrinking, the average house size is 2,400 square feet. The lavish spaces in a 2,400 square feet house lies dormant for most part of the year. One such classic example is the living room, which serves it purpose for a couple of hours during the Christmas season... rest of the time its existence is hardly noticed or acknowledged; ditto for the multiple bathrooms, the huge dining room, bedrooms, and garage parking. The cost one pays for a huge home that is hardly used is hefty -- a mortgage that stretches almost until the end of one's retirement. Add to this the maintenance cost and the carbon footprint of a huge house!
