Tiny: A Story About Living Small

A few week’s ago we were sent a link to the trailer for the film, Tiny: A Story About Living Smallwhich documents a young couple as they build a home on a block of land in rural America. The film taps into the small house movement that is currently gaining momentum in the US, with its proponents arguing that smaller footprints provide a more enjoyable life, free of mortgage stress and the constraints of excessive material possessions.

Whilst the film does provide an extreme perspective, we wholeheartedly agree with its sentiment. The most sustainable approach to architecture, and in particular housing, is to celebrate the modest use of space.
