The Tiny House Movement

Can be traced back at least as far as 1854 when Henry David Thoreau published his book, Walden. Thoreau wrote, “I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach.” Today’s tiny house movement is not as concerned with leaving society to find solitary contemplation. But Thoreau’s idea of simplifying life rings true for many tiny house owners. Even though they live on a smaller scale, most still commute to jobs every day. Some even have families.

The Pros of Living in a Tiny House

  • An intimate connection to the outdoors. You can park your tiny home anywhere. In the woods, near the beach, or on a mountain.
  • Cozy in the winter. Quick and easy to warm up and keep warm.
  • Affordable to build.

  • Mobile. Most tiny homes are built on wheels and can be parked virtually anywhere.

The Cons of Living in a Tiny House

  • No office space
  • If living with another person, there is no personal space.
  • Claustrophobia – bumping into each other, tripping over the dog.
