This is a 950-square-foot two-story small house in Harbor Beach, Michigan that’s on the market for $50,000.

There’s an interesting story behind this house because it was originally in Detroit but made its way to Harbor Beach more than fifty years ago, according to the listing on Zillow. And it gets better… This is only half of the original house. The other half is nearby on another lot.😊 So what do you think, is this a good opportunity to live small for less than the cost of most tiny houses on wheels? Is something like this a better option for you than a THOW?

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…
