Nearly twelve years ago America entered into a time of adjustable-rate mortgages allowing us to build bigger, live larger, and finance more, than we ever had before. Fast forward to today when the nation is crippled by subprime mortgage crisis and home sales are down by nearly 37%.
Somewhere, someone convinced us that in order to be happy and to show our successes we needed to have more stuff and more places to put it. We needed master suites alongside our master baths in our McMansions. We were led to believe our countertops must be granite and that if our heating and cooling system didn’t necessitate multiple zones we were living in too small a house. But is all that true? If our homes are smaller and our possessions minimal, are we still able to make a house a home?
What if we all paid more attention to our passions and our dreams rather than our position in the rat race? What if we traded our 2-story split level dreams for Tiny Houses comprised of less than 300 sq. ft., where you can see all of your worldly possessions simply by turning in a circle?
Some would probably call it a r(E)volution; a movement as revolutionary as evolutionary.
Tiny r(E)volution is an ever-changing, media-mentary to downsize, minimalize, prioritize, and proselytize, the plight of the Tiny House. Along the way we’ll be sharing our personal stories, our tales of discovery, and lot more information.
