If you are serious about downsizing, than you need to stay connected through the Small House Society. The Small House Society was founded by Jay Shafer, Shay Salomon, Nigel Valdez, and Gregory Johnson.
The Small House Society is a voice for the Small House Movement. That movement includes movie stars who have downsized into 3000 square feet, families of five happy in an arts and crafts bungalow, multifamily housing in a variety of forms, and more extreme examples, such as people on houseboats and in trailers with just a few hundred square feet around them.
Size is relative, and mainly we promote discussion about the ecological, economic and psychological toll that excessive housing takes on our lives, and what some of us are doing to live better. It’s not a movement about people claiming to be tinier than thought but rather people making their own choices toward simpler and smaller living however they feel best fits their life.
You can become a member for a mere $5 per year. By becoming a member you help support the distributorship of the monthly newsletter (now online) Small House Society Newsletter. Designers, maintenance of website, display booths, producing videos, online discussion moderation, research and much more.
Gregory Johnson lives in one of Jay Shafers Tumbleweed homes called the Hermitage, which is 140 sq ft. I have put a few pictures in this post and there are many more at the website Small House Society website.
