Christopher and Merete first encountered the tiny house movement in 2007, when they saw a photo of Dee Williams’ 84-square foot home in Olympia, Washington on the cover of Yes! Magazine. But it wasn’t until 6 years later, when Christopher impulsively bought a plot of land in the Colorado mountains and decided to build a tiny cabin of his own, that they began to dive into principles of creative design and simple living that characterize living small and the tiny house movement.

Storytellers by trade, they decided to document their own building process and the lives of other families who live in less than 200-square feet, in a short documentary called, “TINY: A Story About Living Small.” The film has been in production for the past year and is scheduled to be released in late spring of 2012.
