Tiny House, The Movie
It’s been a while since we last checked in with the Tiny House movement and we’re happy to see it’s still going strong. To refresh your memory,Tiny Houses—as little as 89 square feet—are designed by company founder Jay Shafer to reduce your carbon footprint to its absolute minimum.
The latest development is Tiny – A Story About Living Small, a film documenting Christopher Smith’s conversion from ordinary life into Tiny House living. Smith is a bit unusual in that he’s young (just 30) and has no building experience, yet purchased five acres in Colorado and is determined to build his own home with his bare hands. (Check the video preview after the jump.)
In a decidedly un-green twist, Smith is distributing the movie (for $20) via DVD, which we have a hard time reconciling with the green lifestyle. Wouldn’t paid downloads, lacking the packaging, materials and shipping of a DVD, have been the way go?
