Tiny House = Big Movement

This is a brilliant documentary by Kirsten Dirksen, who has brought us dozens of the videos you see on Nextworldtv.

Enjoy this in depth look at the people of the Tiny House movement, who are challenging the way we in the West look at space and the issue of what we "Need".

The average American home can fit about 10 tiny homes. And who can afford land anymore?

One of my favorite quotes is from a teenage tiny home owner, who has already made up his mind to avoid the trappings of mortgage payments and extra house work.

"Big houses are debt prisons." says Austin Hay, who built one on his parents property!

Be inspired by the insights all of these creative and resourceful people share... and their space saving tips are golden!
