Small Is Beautiful: Tiny house documentary looks beneath movement's romantic surface

But what is behind all those lovely, self-built facades, those ultra-efficient heaters and sleeping lofts? And is the tiny house movement a passing fad? These are the questions that Australian filmmaker Jeremy Beasley poses in Small Is Beautiful, a documentary that follows the aspirations and ordeals of four people in Portland, Oregon, who are attempting to build or live in tiny homes. What eventually unfolds through the film is unexpected and quite moving, as it progresses past the surface and into the more profound realities and radical changes that can accompany such a huge lifestyle shift.

It amazes me all the claims you read about super cheap tiny house construction.

What It Really Costs To Build A Tiny Home

Honestly, I feel these claims are misleading at best. To build any structure meant for extended residency, year round living, costs money. It’ll cost what you have planned and probably much more to settle into living in a small space. My plan parameters were simple. I wanted a comfortable home which meets all my needs, but didn’t cost me 30 years of loan principle and interest. I saved all receipts from the build and have compiled a total cost based on reviewing them and calculating costs by categories in the building process.

It’s been almost a year since we moved into the tiny house (me, my husband, and our dog). My friends always say that they love my tiny house and my family keeps asking to come over. Well it still isn’t finished and I really have no idea when it will be done. Our only income is from photography, mostly weddings and engagements.

Ohio Modern Tiny House for the Lofty. Adam Leu has the height of an NBA small forward, 6′ 7″, and wasn’t satisfied with just a standard tiny house. So he modified a couple plans by tiny-house enthusiast Michael Janzen and created the Tall Man’s Tiny House. It’s 21-feet long, 13′ 3″ tall (total, not the interior), and includes three roomy segments of seven feet.

This place includes one bedroom, one bathroom, a loft, and an open living and kitchen room, as pictured. The tiny house was built on an old camper’s trailer with 2×10 construction above the wheels and 2×4 construction in the front and back. Motivated Montanan - Home. Small Home. Big Life. Mini Houses.

In an effort to tell the whole story about tiny houses I felt it necessary to show the not so pretty side of tiny houses. Namely, how much waste a tiny house generates in its construction. The reality of how much waste I have created in building my home really shocked me when I saw all the scraps loaded up onto a single trailer, ready to be hauled away to the dump.

This was a real reality check that even tiny houses have an impact, which of course I knew, but knowing something and facing the reality in the face are two different things. A parallel for me personally – which may seem odd and obviously a much greater moral implication – was the first time I personally participated in “processing” a chicken. To be standing there, a knife in my hand with a live chicken before me, there was real coming to terms with what I was about to do.

So the above shot is pretty much all of the waste that my tiny house created. Kirsten Dirksen. (2) Tuckerbox Homes. Brett's Off-Grid Tiny House Moves To New Property - Living Big In A Tiny House.
