I’m very proud and honored to have contributed a tiny house article appearing in the latest Downsize magazine by Fine Homebuilding.  This issue features a ton of great small living inspiration, including the article I authored featuring 5 tiny houses from around the country.

Podcast: How Tiny House Living can Shape Your Relationships, Career, and Life with Alek Lisefski

Recently I had the pleasure to take part in Ethan Waldman’s tiny house podcast series.

Introducing TinyHousePlans.com: your 1-stop shop for the best tiny house plans available

We’re really excited to share a brand new tiny house resource that will make comparing and choosing the best tiny house plans so much easier. The new website TinyHousePlans.com is now live and the Tiny Project plans are featured on the site.

The true (and unmentioned) cost savings of living small

My friend and fellow tiny houser, Laura LaVoie of Life in 120 Square Feet, recently wrote a good post expanding on an article that may mislead some about the true cost of tiny houses and small living. Here’s what happened: Laura and I (plus some other tiny house greats, like Lina Menard and Christopher Carson Smith) were contacted by the Lauren Modery (writing for GOOD magazine) for research into tiny house (and tiny living) costs. She asked some great questions about how much our houses cost and what our cost of living was like now that we’ve been living tiny […]

Thank you Maria and Morton of GoDownsize.com for this very personal, real-life portrait of our life in a tiny house.
