The tiny house movement continues.
Across the country, more and more people are downsizing from what have been their usual digs for more years than they can remember, and moving to more “consolidated” surroundings. There are different reasons why people are making the not-insignificant decision to drastically decrease their living space. For some, the last several decades of American excess that have overwhelmed so many…physically, spiritually, and emotionally…have driven them to a sort of breaking point where they decide to make life as simple as it can possibly be, including in the form of the physical home. For others, uncertainty about the economic future of the country has prompted them to take a “better safe than sorry” approach to selecting a principal residence, and they achieve the peace of mind they’re seeking in that regard by purchasing a tiny house for which no debt is needed and that will drastically reduce so many standard costs of homeownership. Check out this great feature on tiny house activity in the Las Vegas area that recently appeared at KSNV News 3:
If you’re one of the growing number of Americans giving some thought to moving in the tiny house direction, you might want to check out the terrific series of video courses, available on the Udemy platform, that serve as a great entry point for the beginner who is seriously considering a tiny house of his own.
Macy Miller is an architect and LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) accredited professional whose own tiny house has been featured in TIME magazine and elsewhere, is the lecturer of this highly-rated four-video series on tiny house design. The topics covered include codes, foundation selection, construction, utilities and systems, and custom design. One of the things I like best about the series is that each course is created for the true beginner…for that person who is giving some real thought to perhaps having his own tiny house, but is not yet ready to begin hammering nails (or paying someone to do it for him). Each course is essentially a thorough introduction to each of the topics, but once you have completed them, you will be much, much further along in your understanding of tiny house development.
The courses all come with a 30-day, money-back guarantee, which is always a great feature.
