With the Tiny House movement on the rise, more and more people are considering going tiny. The two main demographics are childless couples and retirees. But what if you are a happy family of five? Can the tiny house be for you? Here are some questions to ask and resources to help find answers for all those soon to be tiny house families.
Wow. A whole family in a tiny house? Just think of all their STUFF! Where would we put it? What would their friends think? What would his friend’s mom think of ME? What address would we give the school? Do I have to be worried about Child Protective Services? Are there pamphlets on potty training via composting bucket? Don’t panic!
As a mother myself, in the planning stages of building tiny, I have had to do my own research. What I discovered was that Tiny House Families have good reason to be firm stakeholders in the movement. Moreover, there are already many, many, many families successfully living tiny.
To name a few of those brave pioneers:
The Kasl Family
The Berzins Family living tiny so they can grow a mortgage-free homestead.
Macy, James, Hazel,& their dog, Denver living more with less.

There are so many benefits of Tiny House living. As long as families are prepared and plan for any issues that may arise, tiny house living can be an easy transition. After all, there is no denying the positive physical and emotional impact that improves the whole family’s quality of life. And I promise, it’s not anything like an episode of the Alaskan Bush People.
