There's a grassroots movement in tiny homes these days. The real estate collapse, the economic downturn, layoffs, scarcity of good jobs - these things have many people rethinking their ideas about shelter - seeking an alternative to high rents, or a lifelong mortgage debt to a bank on an overpriced home.
In this book are some 150 builders who have taken things into their own hands, and created tiny homes (under 500 sq. ft.). Homes on land, homes on wheels, homes on the road, homes on water, even homes in the trees. There are also studios, saunas, garden sheds, and greenhouses.
A rich variety of small homemade shelters is shown in some 1,200 photos, and there are stories, thoughts and inspirations of the owner-builders who are on the forefront of this new trend in downsizing and self-sufficiency.
