The old American dream of a 4000 square foot house full of stuff is loosing vogue, in favor of smaller houses and more freedom. An architectural trend has emerged with a shift towards building tiny eco-friendly dwellings. Cheap enough to forgo a mortgage, small enough to move almost anywhere, potentially portable, low energy costs, and minimal upkeep make tiny houses very attractive.
At the Sonoma County fair, tiny house owners opened up their homes to curious guests, answering questions about small living.
Tumble Weed Tiny Houses, one of the original tiny house companies, was in attendance. They offer tons of online resources including information, blue prints, and example building costs, as well as workshops on how to build your own tiny house.
