What It’s Like Living in a Tiny House

This video shows you what it’s like to live in a tiny house.

It’s brought to you thanks to Dee Williams, Tumbleweed Tiny Houses and the National Building Museum.

So this is what it’s like to spend an entire day in a Tumbleweed tiny house.

There is a House and Home Exhibition at the National Building Museum and Dee Williams, author of Go House Go, is now being featured in it.

She built her tiny home for less than $10,000 several years back and has been living happily in it ever since.

Dee went with mostly reclaimed materials and kept the home simple and elegant. You’ll see (if you already haven’t seen a video tour of her house).

Maybe you can meet her at one of the  tiny house workshops that she teaches. Dee also offers her own building plans in addition to her ‘how to’ book on building little houses on trailers from scratch.

    We need Dee Williams, Jay Shafer, Alex, and others in the tiny house movement, case in point: Lawyers: Guilty pleas for wealthy welfare couple
    (05/09/12 12:13:59)
    Lawyers for a Seattle couple accused of drawing welfare benefits while living in a million-dollar waterfront home say the two will plead guilty next Wednesday in federal court. The seattlepi.com reports ( http://is.gd/f8KINc) the lawyer for chiropractor David Mark Silverstein says he’ll pay back more money than prosecutors say the couple received in assistance. And the lawyer for Lyudmila Shimonava says she’ll be taking responsibility for her actions. The two were charged Tuesday with felony theft of government funds. They’re accused of embezzling more than $115,000 in benefits from 2003 to 2011 from the Department of Housing and Urban Development.

    This is a really nice video. I like watching Dee inside and the outside simultaneously. Is this video intended to be used as a commercial promoting tiny house living?

    That’s a cool tiny house. I always through the ultimate tiny house is a truck camper. 7 x 15 feet inside with all the amenities; AC, heater, hot water, bathroom with shower, stove/oven, refrigerator, microwave oven, sink, solar cells, and a queen size bed.
