• What do people really need to thrive?

  • How can we help to protect and regenerate the ecosystems of which we are a part?

These are the questions that inform our work at Home Sweet Tiny Homes.

It is our goal to create environments that are comfortable, inviting, and inspiring while also considering all of the ways in which our homes – from design to daily living – interact with the larger environment. Our tiny homes are inspired by passive house design, require minimal energy input, and have off-grid capabilities. 

“Our fondness for stuff affects almost every aspect of our lives. Housing size, for example, has ballooned in the last 60 years. The average size of a new American home in 1950 was 983 square feet; by 2011, the average new home was 2,480 square feet. And those figures don’t provide a full picture. In 1950, an average of 3.37 people lived in each American home; in 2011, that numer had shrunk to 2.6 people. This means we take up more than three times the amount of space per capita than we did 60 years ago.”
