This week I released via YouTube -- in an attempt to make it some type of "of the people, for the people" -- my documentary We the Tiny House People: Small Homes, Tiny Flats & Wee Shelters in the New and Old World.
I continue to discover people who aren't even aware of this movement: iving in shipping containers, houseboats, tool sheds, former pigeon coops and treehouses. These stripped-down shelters reveal for us the essence of home.
They thought about bottles and tires. Then Wines tripped over a shipping pallet on the way home from work one night and something clicked. Using only shipping pallets, or skids, the I-Beam architects created a tiny, modular home design.
