New York, USA - The tiny house movement is an intriguing global trend that blends creativity with practicality. Beyond its vast environmental and financial benefits, it beckons adventures in architectural artistry and alternative lifestyles. The Tiny Life is a website community resource dedicated to exploring the greater potential of this radical 21st century way of living.

Featured by major publications like the New York Times, BBC News, and the Guardian, The Tiny Life is far more than a simple information hub for those curious about building a tiny home, though it is that as well.

Curious about the first steps to creating your own tiny home, or how much the whole project might cost? The Tiny Life provides answers, but their approach is not traditional. In spirit with the community vibe of the website, much of the site is composed of crowd-sourced testimony from tiny house veterans.

It begins with discussion of the mindset required to actually follow through on building your own tiny home. Minimalism can have a positive impact on your life but it is a brave step that some will never be able take. Common traits include a desire for community, a willingness to embrace the unknown, a belief things will work out, and a refusal to make excuses.

The site discusses many practical considerations like how to find a place to park a mobile tiny home, and whether it makes sense to have elements like electrical wiring done by professionals. The site store offers traditional building guidebooks as well.

A nice thing about The Tiny Life is that no effort is made to conceal the formidable challenges of building your own tiny home from scratch. The passion of the writers is obvious, but they do not pretend away the trials of the trade. A DIY approach will save you money but it will definitely cost you time, and lots of it. But the rewards are priceless.

One of the coolest features of The Tiny Life is a global map where members mark the locations of their tiny homes, so people can get a sense for the size of the movement in their area. The vast majority of entries are in the US but there are plenty in the UK, Europe, and elsewhere.
