TINY: A Documentary about Living Small

If you love living small, or have ever thought about shedding your possessions to significantly downsize your home, you might want to check out this intriguing new documentary.

I learned about TINY: A Story about Living Small this weekend on one of my favorite sites for all things conscious and fashionable, EcoSalon.

I love the idea of paring down my belongings to what is truly necessary. I love thinking about the freedom that would come from owning just the bare minimum. The film creator, Christopher Smith, who is apparently building his 130 square foot home from scratch and has never built anything himself, is documenting his journey as well as that of other Americans who reside in spaces less than 400 square feet.

I love the challenges, not to mention the innovation, that small spaces create. But 130 square feet...wow. I'm impressed. I'm not sure if I could (I guess the correct word choice here would actually be: want to) do it. Would you?
