09 Apr The Tiny House
Gives us food for thought as to natural living in an economic downturn
Okay, this teaser video is an exaggeration of what we meant when we said a trend toward smaller, energy-efficient homes has taken hold. But Christopher Smith’s mission to build his tiny home in Colorado with his own hands gives us reason to pause and ponder. In 2004, the average home was 2,300 square feet — up from about 1,400 square feet in 1970 — though average family size has declined. So there is something naturally logical about Smith’s Tiny: A Story About Living Small, and the Tiny House Movement.
