The Economist profiles the US tiny home movement

The tiny house movement continues to gain more and more attention from mainstream popular media!

It's a very short article, but the Economist has such large distribution that it's nice to see.
It specifically quotes the founder of Tiny Texas Houses and Tumbleweed Tiny House company.

The comments on this article include some intelligent discussion on land and current outrageous housing sizes. But they also show people who can't seem to believe anyone could live in a tiny house comfortably for long periods of time, which just goes to show that there is a long way to go before people will change their mindset.

  1. "In 1980, according to the National Association of Home Builders, the median single-family home sold was 1,570 square feet. By 2005 that had expanded to 2,235 square feet."

    This would be a perfect "shocking fact" for our motion graphic.. If that happens:)
