Tactics to Tiny: Finding Your Way Home
MetadataShow full item record
This is a study of tiny homes and how they fit within the practical and theoretical framework of our regulatory housing system. It starts with a (much) smaller home but has social, political, financial and legal implications far greater than its physical size. Concluding with a guidebook of tactics in a choose-your-own-adventure format, readers navigate the current system and experience the choices and challenges it takes to obtain a tiny home. It offers conscious readers the opportunity to critique their own presumptions on traditional home-ownership. The format is congruent with the belief that there is more than one way to reach a destination and there is more than one destination when it comes to choosing our homes. We should nurture the small, agile, and convivial efforts of autonomous individuals making a home for themselves. The dweller gains back control of the home, allowing it to become one’s specific adaptation of the world.
