Every time I open my laptop and search under the heading of ‘Tiny Houses’ I am each and every time amazed at the growth of this evolutionary movement. The ‘Tiny House’ expansion within the US may have started from a basic need for shelter in the dwindling, affordable housing market. However, this is not the case in all instances anymore. Not here or elsewhere. All around the globe millions of others were already aware by virtue of necessity or of the need to downsize. They were already aware of the fact that having a lot of things does not afford personal nor environmental well-being. In fact we are somewhat lagging along these lines and in far too many instances contributing to just the opposite.
Fortunately, there are those among us, who for whatever personal reason they chose to join this innovative, forward thinking colony of adventurers, are taking it upon themselves to share the plethora of information and experience they have garnered in the pursuit of creating their own personal havens. There are now even entire communities being created, small towns welcoming ‘Tiny House” dwellers and laws being rewritten to assist in incorporating this expanding community of ‘Tiny House” dwellers. As an example of this expansion the following video will give you a preview of some of the ongoing work to educate, encourage, support you in your pursuit of living a fuller life and getting more for less.
