Oprah’s “Tiny House Man Expands”: Not a Story About Weight Gain


I should really start paying more attention. I didn’t even know that this new piece on Oprah’s Where Are They Now was available online until I stumbled upon a link through Alex Pino’s Tiny House Talk. Thanks, Alex Pino. Thanks Oprah Winfrey.

Microtopia is Mega-Good


 

It was nearly two years ago when Jesper Watchmeister and his film crew caught a plane out of Stockholm to create a documentary about the international trend towards smaller, well-designed houses. I’m proud to have been one of the folks featured in the film.

The piece is called Microtopia, and its production values are high. Amongst other notable works, Jesper’s crew has been involved in the making of a movie called The Dragon With The Girl Tattoo... or something like that.

Watch the trailer for this brilliant film below: 

MICROTOPIA – a documentary about micro dwellings, downsizing and living off the grid. - Trailer from Eight Millimetres on Vimeo.

Depending on your region, you may be able to watch the full-length film for $3.99 using the Vimeo link provided above. If not, stay tuned for the full-length Microtopia to expand availability to your locale.

Dee's Big Tiny


I don’t like being asked to review bad books. It’s painful having to read poorly written script just so you can write, “This thing sucks!” and know it’s true. Those reviews almost never make it to the back cover anyway.

Thank goodness this was far from the case with Dee Williams’ The Big Tiny: A Built-It-Myself Memoir. It was an absolute pleasure to read, and I can emphatically say it, in no way, sucks. More to the point...

In The Big Tiny, Dee Williams creates a portrait of humanity through her own compelling experience. That she has written about home and life with such humor, vulnerability, and in her own unique vernacular, makes her story all the more universal. — Jay Shafer

An excerpt from the book can be read for free at the PAD website. You can pre-order the book here, and you’ll also find a schedule for Dee’s upcoming book tour here.
