Issue 10 – Why a Tiny Home?

Posted July 27th, 2009 by Stephanie Reiley and filed in Issue 10: Why a tiny home?

waldenI guess it shouldn’t come as any surprise that members of the Small Home Movement are nonconformists.  If they weren’t, odds are they wouldn’t be so attracted to an idea so radically outside the norms of mainstream America. Starting with Thoreau and his $28.12 and 1/2 cent house, small housers have all marched to the beat of their own highly-individualistic drummer.

Even knowing that, however, it still catches me off-guard to discover how different the motivations and exact solutions are of various members of the community.  For that reason, I thought it might be worth the SLJ writers taking some time to discuss the personal appeal and perceived advantages of tiny homes.

Also, this issue welcomes a new regular writer:  Lellewynn from Project Rolling Freedom.  We also have a guest post from Betsy McCullen who is becoming a regular on the “premises”.

We hope you enjoy our latest issue…

    I came across your site last month and I absolutely love it. It’s so refreshing to read about people who are living a simpler, more meaningful lifestyle (or are at least trying to). I find it helps me as well, knowing that there are people out there who are living the kind of life that I would like to (one day). I’m always looking forward to the next ‘edition’ of your journal. Thank you for providing me with a different perspective on living – it’s truly like a breath of fresh air!
