Tiny Houses a Growing Trend for Happier, Simpler Living?

I’m so excited to get to share this ABC News clip on the growth of tiny houses in the last few years.


The story features people who have simplified into tiny homes and have seemingly created a happier, simpler way of living.

In case you missed it live on TV here’s your chance to enjoy the quick segment on the tiny housing boom that was aired on national TV recently.

Tiny House Movement on Russian Times News (Interview with Kirsten Dirksen)

Do you believe that tiny houses are still a growing trend? I think we’re just getting started and pretty soon we’ll start seeing the development of more and more tiny house communities, don’t you think?

    Great post! Yes, I do believe that Tiny Homes, and their fledgling communities are only beginning to grow. Unfortunately, I think that (although I hope not) it may go the way of many other trends; here one day, gone the next. There are advantages, and disadvantges to seeing the movement grow. On one hand, it means more people are able to downsize/simply, thus doing more with their lives than, perhaps, they had previously thought. On the other hand, the growth in the trend could be a little dissapointing for those of us who are/were with it from its’ humble origins; seeing something you are passionate about become “commercial” can dampen one’s spirits some. All I can hope for is that the movement grows with the “right kind of people”; like-minded individuals in it for reasons other than “oh, look a cool new trend” and then down-the-road “bye-bye tiny house trend, hello (insert new trend here).

    I think the biggest early success the movement could make is to encourage the repeal of local building codes _requiring_ houses of a minimum size. To be forced to build a tiny home on wheels simply to get a house of a certain size is insane. Plus the zoning restrictions for locating these mobile tiny homes also needs to go. I should be able to build a small house on a foundation anywhere I want. I want to live in the city, near my job, not out in the middle of nowhere.
