As a general rule, I don’t believe in miniaturizing things for the sake of miniaturizing them, and that includes dogs and baked goods. (Golf is fine.) But this tiny house is an exception.
While the film Tiny was supposedly about tiny house living, it was mainly focused on a guy trying to get his tiny house built—we didn’t hear much about everyday tiny house life. A new documentary features tiny house people who have been at it for awhile—and we find out what happens when tiny house people stop being…
