Tiny Houses, generally considered to be roughly 40 square metres or less, have been growing in popularity in the UK. Already enjoying significant uptake in the USA and Australia, the Tiny House movement has garnered public enthusiasm through programmes such as George Clarke’s Amazing Spaces and Tiny House Nation.
Despite this, little scholarly research has been conducted to understand what motivates people to live in tiny houses, what their lives are like in a tiny home, and what barriers prevent more people from making similar transitions.
This research is one of the first of its kind to be carried out in the UK, and will begin to build an empirical database on which we can begin to understand what motivates people to become interested in the tiny house movement, and what the impacts of this lifestyle might be for individuals, communities, and the planet.
If you are interested in tiny houses, if you live in one or know somebody who does, we want to hear your stories. Please get in touch to share them.
