He impulsively buys a 5-acre plot of land in hopes of fulfilling a lifelong dream of building a home in the mountains of Colorado. With the support of his girlfriend, Merete, he sets out to build a Tiny House from scratch despite having no construction experience. From 1970 to 2010, the average size of a new house in America has almost doubled. Yet in recent years, many are redefining their American Dream to focus on flexibility, financial freedom, and quality of life over quantity of space. These self-proclaimed “Tiny Housers” live in homes smaller than the average parking space, often built on wheels to bypass building codes and zoning laws. TINY takes us inside six of these homes stripped to their essentials, exploring the owners’ stories and the design innovations that make them work. When Christopher decides to build his own Tiny House, he dives into the tension between settling down and staying adrift, between preserving a parcel of land that he loves and developing it. Merete begins to ask her own questions about settling down, and both walk away with unexpected lessons about the meaning of home, the importance of place, and the personal impact of sticking with a project that became bigger than they’d ever imagined.

        What is it really like to build and live in your own tiny house?

Ben is a 20 something single guy with an inheritance to spend and a design he drew, but an ambitious timeline and no building experience. Nikki and Mitchell are a young couple who, along with their two dogs, dream of bucking the stereotypical life story of buying a big house and spending the rest of their lives paying it off. Karen, 50, has loved living in her tiny house for two years yet still struggles with the lack of permanency that comes with living in a house on wheels.

                      from Stephanie Essin Added 9,330 9 0

                      The seven tiny homesteaders who live in NE Portland are quite familiar with tight spaces. They know what it takes: Getting rid of years of stuff, downsizing furniture, and creating unique ways to store their belongings. They came together several months ago and created a group of tinys in the backyard of a big yellow house. When it comes to cooking and showering, they share the big house. Some nights they will even gather in the living room and play music, or watch movies on the projector screen. But, when they want some alone time, they simply sneak away to their little abodes. Equipment Used: Canon C100 Panasonic GH4 Marantz Audio Recorder Zoom H4n "Octocopter" - Drone footage Special thanks to Bruce Ely, who provided and flew for the drone shots. To Wes Pope, who guided me through the editing process.
