Greater understanding of the people behind this multi-faceted movement and the many uses of tiny houses will lead to broader social and legal acceptance.

Tiny housing projects have the potential to provide an economically & environmentally sustainable housing option can benefit the everyman and the house-less alike.

Tiny living is the key, for many, to enjoy a high quality lifestyle rich with freedom, experiences and strong relationships. 

Compared to traditional housing, tiny housing requires a fraction of the cost and energy consumption.  As a result, more people now have access to truly attainable homeownership. 

 

 

 

It's all about living consciously

living simply and

living in harmony with our surroundings

to create more abundance on personal & community levels. 

Less

is more

 
We are travelers, nomads, alternative dwellers. This does not keep us from experiencing community. In fact, our community experience is incredible intimate and rich.

We are weaving a community network across the country— not defined by geographic boundaries but made strong through shared experiences, personal connections, open hearts & open minds.
— Alexis & Christian
