Home ownership in the U.S. has dropped to its lowest point in 20 years. The burst of the housing bubble and subsequent mass of home foreclosures has forced people to take a serious look at home ownership and rental options.
A tiny home is classified as a dwelling that is no larger than 500 square feet. Living small has become popular enough to warrant a TV series called Tiny Home Nation, which premiered on FYI TV on July 9, 2014. Is this an option for you? The books on today’s list give you a good overview of what it is like to live in a very small home and how you can go about building one.
