Publisher's Summary

In our country, everything is getting bigger. The more things that you have, the higher your status in most circles. But just because you have more stuff, a bigger house, and more cars and take more vacations does not mean that you are happy. While the current American thought is that you should get as much as possible, there are many who want to change things up and see smaller as better.

This is where the tiny home movement has begun. People don't see the point of having huge mansions just to hold their things. They see the current way of life as wasteful and hard on the environment. Instead of aiming for bigger, they aim for smaller - way smaller. In fact the average tiny home is less than 400 square feet. Considering that the average American home is now more than 2,000 square feet, this is a huge difference.

Creating a tiny home, or a small home if you still like the idea of going smaller but can't handle 400 square feet or smaller, can take a lot of work. You will most likely have to build your own home; there aren't many of these hanging around ready for you to purchase. And with building, you have a lot of little things to figure out, especially when you think about your limitations with space.

This guidebook is here to help you get started with your tiny home. No matter how much experience you have with tiny homes, as a beginner or having studied up on it before, this guidebook is here to help. From learning more about what the tiny house movement is all about to some of the things you need to keep in mind in order to make the perfect tiny home, you are able to learn it all in this guidebook.

Some of the things that you can learn in this guidebook to help you get started with the tiny home movement include:

  • What the tiny home movement is all about
  • Choosing the right location for your tiny home
  • How to build your tiny home, including how much it will cost, how to save up money, and how to create a blueprint
  • Preparing each room in the home when you are limited on space
  • Decorating to get more out of your space
  • Other options for becoming self-sufficient to help the environment even more
  • Tips and tricks to get more out of the tiny home

    "Enjoyed it!"

    I always enjoyed books about home designing and projects about home management. This book elaborated the concept of the tiny home movement. Since its typical for people like neighbors of some sort, compete with each other

    "Unique"

    I have a small apartment (tiny sala, rooms and bathroom) We are 5 and it's kinda a small house for us because of my appliances, decorations etc. My husband loves to organized and have a great idea on how to manage inside our house. From closets to cabinets, shoe rocks which he designed at our wall. Unique indeed!

    "Organized"

    I love this book because I like tiny houses. In fact my house right now is small but can't think of how to improve it that's why I bought this book. I like how the author explains on how to organize and maximize space. Also on how to design the whole house and tips and tricks included.

    "Not all big are better"

    They say Bigger is Better, well apparently after reading this book I can say that having a Tiny Home can give you better peace of mind than having a big one.

    "Clear"

    This book also has a very clear and structured logical way it is laid out to make it easy for the reader to follow. Lays it out very simply on defining what tiny homes are, how you can build your own and get started living this lifestyle.
