What went into making the film?

I thought I’d make the film as a way to research tiny houses for myself so I could build one. I thought I’d be done in 3 months, and just pop up a video on my website. Now nearly two years later, I’ve spent all of my savings, had dozens and dozens of people help make the film and it’s become so much more than I could have every hoped for! Thanks to everyone who has helped along the way. Thank you for your patience with us getting this film out there!

Some very kind friends of mine let me stay in there backyard for 8 weeks while we were editing (with florence our super star editor). In the backyard, I lived in a swag (a swag, for those who don’t know is a canvas tent/sleeping bag type thing) and it looks like this.

Now, it’s very far from a tiny house – but it is definitely tiny living!

After all of this and the original plan to make my own tiny house – I now have a documentary about tiny houses, know loads about them and what goes into making one, but I don’t have my own tiny house, haha!
