Film Review: “Small is Beautiful: A Tiny House Documentary”

My partner, Anjali, and I recently had the honor of pre-screening the much-anticipated Small is Beautiful: A Tiny House Documentary by Jeremy Beasley.

After seeing the film myself, I can say with certainty that it’s the best tiny house documentary to date! It’s beautifully filmed and edited, but that’s not what makes it special. What got me is that the characters are REAL, their stories […]

Future uses for our tiny house (when we’re no longer living in it full-time)

Treehugger just beat me to the punch. I’ve always loved the feeling of knowing that the use of our tiny house can change and evolve as we do. It will never lose its value (to us or to others) since it can always be used for something important (even long after were done living it full-time). I’ve given a lot of thought to this, and have mentioned most or all of these uses in various interviews and such, but I thought it would make a great blog post as well. So here are my Top 6 Future Uses for Tiny […]

Viewpoints: Tiny House Tours & Respect for the Privacy of Homeowners

Laura LaVoie of 120squarefeet.com recently wrote a post (“Tiny House Tours, Private Homes, and Etiquette”) for Tiny House Listings in which she gives some important yet rarely mentioned advice: Above all else please respect that tiny homes are actual private homes owned by the individuals. Being open on the internet is not an invitation for a complete lack of privacy. Please respect their personal space and only view tiny homes in the appropriate context. I’ve had the same experience that Laura and I’m sure many others have had: struggling to say no when people ask for a tour of our […]
