What if we all paid more attention to our passions and our dreams rather than our position in the rat race? What if we traded our 2-story split level dreams for Tiny Houses comprised of less than 200 sq. ft. where you can see all of your worldly possessions simply by revolving in a circle?

Some would probably call it a r(E)volution…

Tiny r(E)volution is a media-mentary on our goal to downsize, minimalize, prioritize, and proselytize, the plight of the Tiny House. Along the way we’ll be sharing our personal stories, our tales of discovery, and lot more information.

Whispering Chickens and Big Bad John

The following post was originally seen on www.tinyrevolution.us. 



Yesterday was a day full of firsts for me. It all began when I woke up in the morning and found out that one of the schools I work with (…

Growing my own little sprouts

About a month ago I was tired of winter. The doldrums had me....well, feeling humdrum. I needed something green. Something needed to grow! Unfortunately nowhere around us sells seeds or sprouts so I hopped on the line and had some friends in Charleston, SC pick up some seeds at a local whole food-type market. Each packet was about $2.99 and we decided after some research to…

Turn your shed into a Tiny House

When Crystal and I first talked about tiny houses we found inspiration in the most....well, (dare I say????) obvious of places. We were not sure what less than 200 square feet would look like, let alone feel like inside. So we headed to the local box home improvement store. It was there that we found the… Continue

Buying Beef From a Local Farm

It was just after the first U.S. case of mad cow disease was confirmed in December of 2003 that it became clearer to me than ever that my diet needed to consist of more natural, organically produced meat. That was also the first year my folks took a step into a more eco-responsible diet as well. My family collectively purchased 1/2 side of Angus beef and a 1/4 side of hog. Both animals… Continue

Hi Andrew - thrilled to have you here! Your adventure ahead sounds so exciting and I'm looking forward to following it. Please feel free to cross-post to the member blogs here. There are some how-tos on your Idle Acres site (cob oven, growing collards, etc.) that would make a wonderful addition to our HOMEGROWN 101s for the newbies out there. Let me know what you think of including some of those. You're an inspiration!

I am excited to check out your tiny revolution page. My family and I are trapped in the "how did we get all thsi shit and why do we have it" world. We often talk of down sizeing. We live 3 hours from any of our family and have 2 dogs and a 4 year old. We just don't see how to do it at this point.

I will read that, thak you. I am sure there is a middle ground between going full into that life and where we are now tripping over each other and rapidly filling almost 2000 sq ft. We have many friends that we use to measure our success against and are finaly getting to the place that we are not as concerned with what they are doing and turning the focus on our lives and what we want to do for our health and mental wellbeing and that of our son. Having a child can really change your outlook on what is improtant. We are just now at about to the point that we are making everything we eat at home from scratch. I love good food and love to cook so it is cheaper than going our to eat! Fortunatly we are having great luck buying local.
