Tiny: A Story About Living Small: Who wants to live in a 200-square-foot house?

2.5 out of 4 stars

Tiny: A Story About Living Small
Directed by
Merete Mueller, Christopher Smith

Christopher Smith grew up dreaming of a home in the mountains. The former army brat's mission to build a tiny house in Colorado may not offer a satisfying answer to the question of what home is, but it does provide a fascinating glimpse into the lives of people who have chosen to live in tiny houses that are 200 square feet or less. Some have made the choice out of concern for the environment; for others it's economic reasons. All of them will make you rethink the way we live.
