The Beauty of the Tiny House

with 287 Comments

The concept of a tinyhouse.

What is it about the tiny houses that draws people in?

I think it’s the same thing that draws me to bicycles: the sense of freedom, the sense of living life as if your still playing.

The concept that a tiny house is something that forces you to live a minimal, simplistic life is appealing. The concept that what could be a downpayment on a standard home, can pay for an entire tinyhouse is appealing. The concept that no one can ever take your home from you is appealing.

Whether modern:

Or Traditional:

Made of shipping container:

On a truck bed:

Or a foundation:

A little bigger:

Or teeny tiny:

It seems somehow similar to camping, or traveling or being free.
