In the world of Tiny homes, online resources are endless. Here are a few of my favorites which you can see in the slideshow above.
1.) Tennessee Tiny Homes (Tiny Happy Homes)
Tennessee Tiny Homes and Tiny Happy Homes are construction companies that build quality tiny homes on wheels which are classified at travel trailers (RV’s). Tennessee Tiny Homes is based out of Collierville, Tennessee which is just outside of Memphis. Tiny Happy Homes is their nationwide sister company.
Their Facebook page (here) is full of resources and local events at their site to learn about the Tiny culture. While their Facebook page is consistently updated, I only wish their Twitter page was as well (here).
I will be heading to their Open House on September 26th where, for the first time, I will be inside a tiny home and will be shooting some footage for this blog as well as *fingers crossed* an interview with their owner, Joe and Kristen Everson.
2.) Tiny House Swoon
Tiny House Swoon is the "go-to" tiny home blog. Like HGTV, its large following helped evolve their blog from a beautifully image centric design to include Tiny Home Listings which sends emails to prospective tiny home owners on homes for sale. You can subscribe here.
I like that their site has large images and a breadth of different types of tiny homes (which I'll be talking about next week).
3.) FYI TV's Tiny House Nation
Tiny House Nation is a TV show on the binge-worthy network, FYI. In fact, I've become such an FYI addict that they've featured me on their website and sent me a generous gift basket full of tiny home accessories which makes me even more of a loyal fan.
On Tiny House Nation, hosts and renovation professionals John Weisbarth and Zack Giffin travel across America to show ingenious small dwellings and their creative homeowners.
They also help families design and construct their own dream mini-homes which are beyond impressive with a budget typically below $100,000.
Check out one of my favorite episodes below featuring Little Rock newlyweds building a 264 sq. foot mobile pad as they prepare to get married and hit the road as traveling nurses.
I'm a tiny home swooner looking to maximize my life without drowning in debt. Over the next semester, I'll be writing about those who live tiny and its benefits as part of the University of Memphis' Advanced Social Media class.
