We begin with tiny houses. Among people in this world, tiny homes are normally less than 200 square feet and are on wheels. They generally cost less than $30,000 and you can’t get a traditional mortgage to buy one.
Tammy Strobel and her partner Logan Smith live in a tiny home.
Their house is 128 square feet and was built on an sixteen by eight foot trailer. It has a stove that uses alcohol as fuel, a free-standing electric-oil heater, and a simple plumbing set-up. They share wireless internet with the land owners. They don’t have a refrigerator or a shower.
Strobel says there are ten main benefits to living tiny (number one: “exiting the consumer lifestyle”; number seven: “less cleaning”).
Here are some photos from our show at the tiny house:
