The Tiny House Movement
I thought this story was very interesting. It looks at Dee Williams, a woman who lives in a house that is 84 square feet.
There's a short video in the link that mostly focuses on Williams but also features interviews with other people building tiny houses. There's also a slideshow with pictures of various small homes. I actually like a lot of the homes shown in the report. I think they're quite economical, environmental and yet also stylish. It also shows you don't need an abundance of space to live comfortably.Her home measures 84 square feet, has a small sleeping loft, a compost toilet and enough closet space for a few shirts and pairs of pants. Williams says the downsizing has brought her a sense of contentment, and many others are beginning to follow her lead.
