The Small Living Journal is Back - Tiny House Blog

The Small Living Journal is Back

The Small Living Journal was originally the brain child of Stephanie Reiley, at Coming Unmoored. The idea was to bring together some of the key thinkers in the small house movement and co-blog on specific topics in a bi-weekly journal format. A few months ago we lost momentum… but now it’s back.

We’ve made a few minor changes including moving to a monthly publishing cycle. Michael Janzen of Tiny House Design is also acting as webmaster and project manager with the goal of keeping the quality of content high and focused on topics people want to read. The December issue is focused on Technology and Simple Living.

The next issue will be published on January 1st, 2010 and the topic will be entirely up to our readers. Michael has posted 14 potential topics in a survey. Please take a look and vote for the topic you’d like to see next.

    I second Shirley’s topics!
    Also, I would like to see some clever built-in furniture/storage solutions that might be inspiration to DIYers.

I’d like to see more articles about lighter weight materials for building mobile tiny houses.

    Janet, I have an uncle who is currently working on building a gypsy wagon, and he is committed to making it as light as possible so it’s possible for it to be hauled on a standard car. If you would like to learn more, here is his blog:

    I’m sure he would love to answer any questions you may have.

Are there more photos of this house available?
Are plans available for this house – either free or for sale?

    Hi Barbara – Dee’s house is a variation of Jay Shafer’s Tumbleweed Epu, you can view one that was built recently here: and also get the plans through that link. Unfortunately, the plans are not free or cheap.
