My wife and I are currently looking for a new apartment, because currently we simply don’t have enough storage space and our home looks more like a set from Storage Wars. We don’t really even have that much stuff, we just have no shelves or cabinets to put it in! Besides, it’d be nice to maybe have the space to get a few other things we’ve been wanting, but don’t have room for.
While I’m sure a lot of us can relate to the need for a little more space, there’s a growing movement out there that seeks to do exactly the opposite – the “tiny house” movement is all about living as minimally as possible, utilizing every last inch of space to maximize efficiency. Although I’m not 100% sure I could commit to that kind of life, I have to say I’ve seen some truly amazing examples while working at Wimp; homes that had me thinking, “Hmmm, maybe I could do that after all.”
If you’re really serious about tiny living, however, then you may want to track down and chat with Paul Elkins. Paul’s been touring the country for years with what he likes to call a “stealth” camper. The tiny domicile took him just $150 to construct, weighs only 60 pounds, and can be pulled by a bicycle (which is exactly what Paul does). Inside, he’s got a stove, a sink, a little bit of counter space, some storage, and a bed. It’s even insulated and has a skylight!
