This is a tiny house movement timeline… A brief history of tiny homes. How far back does the tiny house movement go? Some could argue that tiny homes have been here since the dawn of man. And it’s true, isn’t it? But for the purposes of this article, I’d like to start by skipping to the year 1854 because that’s the year that Henry David Thoreau published his book, Walden, after living in a 150-square-foot tiny cabin near Walden Pond on Ralph Waldo Emerson’s woodland property.

Little did he know, that he may be largely responsible for having sparked the giant tiny house movement that we are witnessing today. So please join me on a journey back in time, to explore the tiny homes of yesterday and see how they have inspired the tiny and small homes of today. And who knows, maybe we can figure out what the tiny homes of the future will be like? Let’s go…

This is the story of a man who built a 512-square-foot tiny house for his sister in 3 months and 28 days for $16,318 in materials.

It’s located in the Florida panhandle and he even stayed in it after hurricane Michael. Now he is considering using it for Airbnb, too. It’s 16′ x 16′, 2 stories, 512-square-feet. What do you think?

Introducing… Adorable Abodes out of Northumberland Cty which is just north of Brighton, Ontario, Canada. They design and build “adorable abodes” that are “bigger and better than tiny homes” from as little as 350-square-feet up to 505-square-feet.

They are also drawing up plans for a community of these beautiful tiny/small homes. Sounds pretty cool, doesn’t it? We love this concept. Please re-share this story with anyone you know who may be interested/inspired by it. Thanks!🙏
