What are Tiny Houses? The Tiny House Movement? Tiny Living?
Simply put it is a social movement where people are downsizing the space that they live in. The typical American home is around 2600 square feet, while the typical small or tiny house is around 400 square feet. Tiny Houses come in all shapes, sizes and forms but they focus on smaller spaces, simplified living.
This is a growing movement, that is for sure! With international attention on CNN, NBC, Oprah, PBS people have come to know about another way to live their lives. Every month I have thousands of readers come to my site and I know other sites experience the same.
People are joining this movement for many reasons, but the most popular reasons are because of environmental concerns, financial concerns and seeking more time and freedom. For most Americans 1/3 of their income is dedicated to the roof over their heads, this translates to 15 years of working over your life time just to pay for it.
This site focuses on Tiny Living or living The Tiny Life. Which Tiny Houses are the focal point in a broader system to address issues, concerns and problems of current day.
