Tiny House Resources
Below are some helpful resources and organizations we recommend for people interested in building a tiny house.
The MicroLife Institute is a 501(c)3 non profit based in Atlanta GA. We embrace the ideals of “Less Is more” and advocate for better zoning policy to allow for housing to be built for the good of connecting community. We educate , advocate, focus on research and pilot projects that demonstrate this philosophy to create change across the world. The MicroLife Institute is a hub that connects individuals, policy makers, and professionals to rethink how we utilize space inside the walls of a structure and beyond while building community and social conscience. This institute focuses on others and helping them see how less space could mean more life.
Small House Society
“A voice for the small house movement.” Advocates for Less. There has always been an interest in small houses. However this interest is rapidly growing today as a result of various factors such as: economic conditions, concern about the environment, and a desire for simple more effective living. People who are able to make smaller living spaces work often end up having more time and money for other areas of life such as marriage, family, education, fitness, and career. This helps create a more balanced and enjoyable life. Mission. Our desire is to support the research, development, and use of smaller living spaces that foster sustainable living for individuals, families, and communities worldwide.
