I have a feeling that most of you have heard about tiny houses. Once a small, fringe community, the tiny house movement has gained a huge amount of interest in the social media and blogging worlds, and has even spawned TV shows and documentaries.
I’ve been a fan of the tiny house movement for years, and I’m not surprised to see how much interest has been generated over the ultra minimalist community. Actually living in a tiny house may be too extreme a version of simple living for most, but the movement has managed to strike a chord with people from all kinds of backgrounds and current housing situations.
Don’t think that the tiny house movement is simply about a race to the bottom in square footage. At its heart, it’s about people wholeheartedly embracing simple living and minimalism and freeing themselves from mortgages, debt, and the physical trappings of day to day life.
