Top 5 Posts Of 2012

With 2012 having come to a close, I thought it would be neat to look back at what were the most popular posts of the year.  So here it goes!

1. It only yurts when I laugh

Yurts will always have a special place in my heart, it was the first alternative house I seriously considered living in.  This is a post that talks about the top 5 reasons to live in a yurt.

2. What is the tiny house movement?

I use this post as a starting point for people just getting into or learning about Tiny Houses.  It gives a general overview of Tiny Houses and some great videos, people seem to really like this crash course into our little world.

3. Living in a Shed

I have always been intrigued by the idea of taking a shed and finishing it to live in.  The advantage being that you can pick these sheds pretty much anywhere for pretty cheap and some of them actually look half decent.

4. Tiny Cottage

I really love this house, just the looks of it, the finishes, the interior… everything!


5. Tiny New York Apartments

Small apartments aren’t anything new, particularly to those who live in New York City, but even for those in the big apple, these are some tiny apartments!

The Tiny House Movement Across The Country

The movement is growing, we have seen it in the number of people coming to this website, the number of houses being built and if you haven’t checked out the Tiny House Map, you should and be sure to add yourself!  I came across this great video of some tiny houses and the people who live in them.

Tiny House – $362

I found this video on my permaculture forum I frequent, the video shows a house which apparently was free, but then insulated with wool for only 362 bucks.

Update On Berkley House

I stumbled upon a new tiny house video that actually has some shots of the Berkley House, which I covered here not too long ago.  People loved the house and I can see why, its such a great design and look. Check out this video to see it!

TheTinyLife Featured on Creative Loafing

Hey all, some exciting news, TheTinyLife was featured on Creative Loafing.  Many of you might not be familiar with it, it is in 5 or so cities on the East coast, it is our free alternative newspaper.  For the Charlotte location, its a pretty well read publication.


Most of us have too much space and too much stuff, both of which lead to too much responsibility. Think about it: You have to manage your stuff. First, you have to get a good price for it — then you have to find a place for it, care for it, keep it from falling apart, store it and, eventually, dispose of it. Multiply those responsibilities by all of the possessions in your life and you’re not going to have much time for anything else other than stuff-management. That’s not even counting all of the energy and resources that went into creating, packaging, shipping, storing and selling your stuff before you bought it. It’s this type of realization that has helped spur the tiny house movement, where people are building and living in houses smaller than most of the rooms in our houses.
