CASE STUDY: The U.S 'tiny house' movement
The Tiny House Movement has really taken off in the US.
Tiny Homes are generally defined as being 9.3 square meters or less. This is compared to an Australian house which is an average of 243 square metres.
The Tiny House Movement is all about reducing costs and clutter and living simply. With costs from $1000-$30,000 building a tiny home can be a radically different (and cheaper) housing option.
More than anything it is a lifestyle change with no room for excess storage. In the US there are already many service providers, companies and conferences to help you make the switch.
