Event Description

This film follows Christopher Smith and his girlfriend Merete Mueller as they attempt to build a Tiny House from scratch with no building experience. As we accompany this couple through their odyssey we also learn about the growing popularity of the Tiny House Movement in North America through the profiles of other families who have downsized their lives into houses smaller than the average parking space. Why are people choosing to live in these very small dwellings, some less than 200 square feet? They do it for several reasons: for the affordability and financial independence, to reduce their carbon footprint and live on less resources, or for the freedom to move around, since a lot of tiny houses have wheels. Recently however many cities in the US have been turning to tiny homes as a solution to chronic homelessness, cities such as Portland OR, Olympia WA, Newfield NY, Austin TX and Washington, DC are developing small communities or villages of tiny homes to house their homeless. This is a film that offers us an opportunity to explore a different way of dealing with housing affordability and to ask the question: Can tiny houses be part of the solution to house the homeless in our community? We are partnering with The Caring Place for this presentaion.
