Tiny Houses– The Facts Behind the Fad

tiny house“Does size matter in a home?

For an increasing number of Louisville residents, the answer is no.

The tiny house movement has spawned documentaries, a television show, and decorated many a Pinterest page—all focused on people who are seriously downsizing their living space.

The typical American home is about 2,600 square feet. The typical small or tiny house is about 400 or even 100 square feet. Tiny houses come in all shapes, sizes and forms but they all focus on smaller spaces and simplified living.” 

This is an excerpt from a really fun piece for WFPL News, “Why Some Louisvillians Are Moving Into Tiny Houses.” I am obsessed with these pint-sized abodes, and even more interested in the people who choose to move into them.

Best quote from the interviews: “The Morgan family was forced to downsize many of their possessions—which is still a work in progress—however, the one thing that the family will not skimp on in their new home is books; the interior of the home is lined with bookshelves. “Zach says we need to start the first library after the zombie apocalypse, and when he puts it that way, I have to agree,” Heather said.
