Will Johnston is a fun-loving man about town in Atlanta. Known locally as the “Tiny House Guy”, Will relishes his life as a micro-living ambassador. His positive energy is contagious. He founded Tiny House Atlanta, a program for the Georgia nonprofit MicroLife Institute dedicated to building walkable, sustainable “micro-hood” communities while educating individuals, groups and cities about the positive impacts of micro living. Additionally, they are one of the largest tiny house Meetup Groups in the nation.
In December, Tiny House Atlanta debuted the Tiny Office, a collaboration with City of Atlanta Mayor’s Office of Resilience. Together they created an innovative mobile workspace that acts as an alternative to traditional office environments and is being used to promote sustainable and micro living. It boasts sustainable materials and off-grid technology, including a Tesla powerwall and a rain catchment system.
You can spot the Tiny Office moving around Atlanta as an advocacy and research tool for Tiny House Atlanta and the MicroLife Institute. Their goal is to create more resources for local advocates and help bring more micro-housing to both urban and rural areas, like their planned community development, Eco Cottages at East Point.

My partner, Christian and I are traveling tiny house dwellers. Together we’ve been on the road two years for our documentary and community outreach project, Tiny House Expedition. We live, breathe, dream the tiny home community every day. This is our life and our true passion project. We are very grateful to be able to experience this inspiring movement in such an intimate way and to be able to share our exploration with all of you.
