Product Description

About the Author

Ryan Mitchell lives in Charlotte, North Carolina, and has been active in the Tiny House movement for years. You might know him as the main blogger and founder of TheTinyLife.com, a website dedicated to sharing stories of tiny living--whether it's tips for simplifying your life or advice for building your own tiny residence. Because nothing beats one-on-one interactions, Ryan helps people connect with each other through community events at TinyHouseConference.com. Since Ryan built his own tiny house in 2013, he has been able to actively pursue his passions, which include photography, backpacking, and travel. Ryan believes that alternative housing options and sustainable local agriculture are key components to meet the future needs of society.

Format: Paperback
A really good read, not just full of pretty pictures but with some honest good essays and challenges about why a person would want to partake in this lifestyle. My wife and I are sitting down and re-reading and going through each chapter on here. A definite "must own" for anyone with a tiny living library.

(very slight complaint...actual physical book seems somewhat low quality...pages are turning up..peeling apart....etc, looks like I've had it for years instead of weeks)

Want to spend less time and money on home maintenance? Live mortgage-free and face lower taxes? Have the freedom to travel and pursue hobbies? Most North Americans, says Ryan Mitchell, spend much of their lives chasing the dream of large home ownership only to compromise their savings, health and leisure. In his new book, "Tiny House Living," Mitchell asserts that living smaller can reap big rewards.

"Tiny House Living" begins by defining what constitutes a "tiny" house: generally fewer than 400 square feet. However, Mitchell makes it clear that area matters less than than sensibility; living small rejects consumer culture and the "bigger is better" mindset. Mitchell continues by examining the types of people to whom tiny houses appeal (commonly retirees and young professionals) and then presents eleven case studies based on his interviews with tiny house owners/builders. He shares their insights, successes and challenges and includes wonderful photographs of the completed homes, both inside and out.

The book ends with a comprehensive list of blogs (his own included), websites, and other resources for those considering a tiny home project. A highly recommended introduction for those considering a smaller and better life!

I loved reading this book, it was very inspiring! Great information and ideas on living and designing a tiny house. I'm trying to get my husband to read it to understand why I'm so drawn towards this lifestyle. I liked the individual stories and how they got started too. Great book!
