Tiny House Resources
The current tiny house movement in the United States began with Jay Shafer. Fed up with America’s obsession with massive homes, Jay radically downsized. He designed and built a tiny home, and has been leading the small house revolution ever since through Tumbleweed Tiny House Company and Four Lights Houses. Participants in the tiny house movement discover many benefits:
Living small means you live simply. Without a large home and big yard to maintain, you suddenly have more free time to do what you really love.
Living small means you live inexpensively. Many people no longer want to spend so much of life in debt for a bigger home than they need.
Living small reduces your environmental impact. According to the Small House Book, the average American house emits more carbon dioxide than the average American car. Not to mention the environmental impact of construction materials. A small home produces much less.
Today the tiny house movement is represented by the Small House Society, of which Seattle Tiny Homes is a member.
Update since this interview on KIRO radio: Seattle Tiny Homes is now licensed as an RV manufacturer and dealer. And we offer financing and insurance.
