The tiny house movement has been growing organically over the years.
I say organic because there haven’t been any loans or official communities for tiny homes yet. So it’s been a slow and steady growth of pioneers who have been building tiny houses themselves from scratch.
These people have plowed through challenges like zoning, financing, and social norms. They are now living proof that tiny house living has major benefits.
In this video by Jackson Loo for The Daily you’ll get to see the latest happenings in the tiny house movement across the country, from Washington State to Washing, D.C.
You’ll see the home of Dee Williams, Logan and Tammy, Brittany Yunker and Boneyards Studios’ attempt at a tiny house community in the city of Washington, D.C.
“It’s got less square footage than a roll of toilet paper,” says Dee Williams about her little home.
Today there are a growing number of people attending workshops, open houses, and visiting blogs like this one to learn about living in and building a tiny house. Below is a photo of the Boneyard Studios showcase/community project. Jay Shafer also has a tiny house village in the works.
Although these homes are designed to be pulled down the highway most tiny home owners prefer to leave them in one place until it’s time to move because of their weight.
“Once it gets where you want it to be, I found a lot of people just want it to stay,” says Dee Williams on moving around with a tiny house on wheels.
So if you’re looking to travel around the country, a travel trailer or a motor home might be a better option because they’re lighter and more aerodynamic. But if you’re looking for the simple life, a tiny house on wheels might be just the trick.
