Christopher Smith is the man behind TINY: A Story About Living Small.
He’s turning thirty years old and is set on making the mountains in Boulder, Colorado his permanent home.
Christopher has been visiting and interviewing people who live in tiny houses after he asked himself the big question.
What makes a good home?
The answer is different for every person. But for many, small houses are becoming the answer because they simply cost less.
People are attracted to tiny houses because of the time and financial freedom it offers. It’s a no mortgage lifestyle with fewer chores.

Building with no experience
Christopher has never built anything previous to this project. He took the plunge by purchasing a 5 acre plot of land in the mountains.
He’s learning and figuring everything out as he goes and he’s creating a film throughout the entire process.

Future of tiny houses
The movement towards small houses continues to grow every day. I’m sure that it has a promising future because so many of us are showing an interest in it.
As the word continues to spread more and more people are opening their eyes to the constraints that large houses, mortgages and excessive consumption create in our lives. This is creating more demand for small spaces.
What if the next real estate boom is in the development and conversion of smaller and more affordable housing of all kinds?
