About the Movie
After a decade of travel, Christopher Smith approaches his 30th birthday and decides it’s time to plant some roots. He impulsively buys a 5-acre plot of land in hopes of fulfilling a lifelong dream of building a home in the mountains of Colorado. With the support of his girlfriend, Merete, he sets out to build a Tiny House from scratch despite having no construction experience.From 1970 to 2010, the average size of a new house in America has almost doubled. Yet in recent years, many are redefining their American Dream to focus on flexibility, financial freedom, and quality of life over quantity of space. These self-proclaimed “Tiny Housers” live in homes smaller than the average parking space, often built on wheels to bypass building codes and zoning laws. Tiny: A Story About Living Small takes us inside six of these homes stripped to their essentials, exploring the owners’ stories and the design innovations that make them work.Tiny is a coming-of-age story not only for a generation that is more connected, yet less tied down than ever, but also for a society that is redefining its priorities in the face of a changing financial and environmental climate.More than anything, Tin invites its viewers to dream big and imagine living small.
Must See for the Aspiring Minimalist or Tiny House Dreamer
Beautiful aesthetic - indie doc with a good story honest execution and some gorgeous cinematography. 👍👍👍👍👍
Features some big names in the tiny house movement. Really great spot with Jay Shafer founder of Tumbleweed and Four Lights, Dee Williams of PAD and author of The Big Tiny, Tammy Strobel of Rowdy Kittens & Logan Smith of Smalltopia, etc.
If you have interest in the growing "small house movement" and subsequent "tiny house movement" you will probably enjoy it. I have watched every online tiny house documentary but the artistic quality of this film left me with new inspiration
Genuine and inspiring
This heartwarming story comes at a time when we really need to start looking at our priorities in life and re-evaluate the ‘things’ we have. Tiny movie, BIG message!
Tiny Houses, Huge Lives
So refreshing to watch real lives unencumbered by the trappings of too much stuff. Gives being close new meaning! Bravo! Gotta love constructive young folks.
