Tiny homes are Attracting the Thrifty and the Green

About a month ago Craig Saunders a writer from the Globe and Mail located in Toronto, Canada contacted me looking for people living in tiny houses in Canada.

I gave him the contact information for Will Pederson and Sasha McIntyre who lives quite close to Craig in Toronto.

Will Pederson lives in a Tarleton he built on a communal farm outside Abbotsford, B.C., where he grows organic salad greens.and Sasha lives in 480-square-foot house in eastern Toronto with her husband, John Lei.


You can read the Globe’s article Tiny homes are Attracting the Thrifty and the Green here. Craig felt he could not cover everything in the article so he also wrote an additional article on the subject on his personal blog Green Tenant and the article is called: Tiny Home or Apartment?

I want to thank Tammy of Rowdy Kittens for first spotting Craig’s article and mentioning it yesterday on her blog.
