The American Dream Is Alive—and It's Really, Really Tiny

Jun 03, 2014 | 478 videos
Video by Christopher Smith and Merete Mueller

How did this Portland couple go from $30,000 of debt to homeownership? They ditched many of their material possessions, quit the jobs they hated, and settled down in a 128-square-foot cottage. "Part of the reason we moved into a tiny house," they explain, "was to get rid of all this stuff and the trappings of daily life."

This clip is from TINY: A Story About Living Small, a feature-length documentary now available on DVD and iTunes.
