So what – they (and you) may be asking – is the tiny house movement then? What are tiny houses? What is tiny living? Great question.
- Social movement? Check.
- Anti-consumerism? Check.
- Need -vs- Want? Check.
- Backlash? Check.
The tiny house movement is really just about people – normal people – downsizing the space they live in. Some choose to do so by building on a trailer. Some build accessory dwellings. Some develop communal spaces. But at the very root of the movement it is about people not wanting as much. Not wanting the overhead of a big house. Not wanting all the possessions. Not wanting the responsibility. And the list goes on.
