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 […]
Last summer I was honored to have a Japanese film crew (and my friend, Gabriel Craft of Small and Tiny Home Ideas) over to my tiny house for a video interview as part of the forthcoming SIMPLIFE Tiny House Documentary. The filmmakers have recently released several short teaser interviews, and you can watch mine below. For more SIMPLIFE teasers, check out their vimeo page.
Thank you Maria and Morton of GoDownsize.com for this very personal, real-life portrait of our life in a tiny house. They were both a lot of fun to talk to about living small and going through the downsizing process (they’re doing the same as well, so cheers to that!). It was a pleasure! Enjoy the video… If you are interested in getting the tour of the house, you can go to 24:26 in the video, where Alek shows us around. The house is so beautiful and well thought through in every way. You can see the house and meet them […]
Michael Hulleman of Hobo with a Laptop is starting to amass some pretty great interviews with some amazing tiny house people. He recently shared his interview with my favorite tiny house couple Gabriella and Andrew Morrison, and just today posted a similar interview with myself. In some areas, this interview is more in-depth than what I’ve written on my blog, so I really wanted to share it here as an additional resource. Many of these questions and answers will help give you a better understanding our house, and will hopefully provide some insight into our tiny house lives now that […]
I recently had the pleasure taking part in Alex Cequea’s video interview series called The A-List. The A-List purpose is to “interview innovators who are making the world a better place.” We talked for about 25 minutes about building a tiny house and living the tiny house life. Alex tells me the interview will also be posted on the Good Men Project website in a couple weeks. Thank you, Alex!
