Our friend Ryan Mitchell from The Tiny Life is raising funds for an awesome infographic about tiny houses and their occupants. Be sure to read all about his idea, and check out the cool incentives he's offering through Kickstarter.
A week ago people from all corners
of the world participated in Tiny House Survey where we wanted to compare how
people in tiny houses compared to the rest of America. What started out as a simple question, lead
to more than 2,400 people responding! We
were so humbled and excited by the response that we wanted to do something
special. So we wanted to make an
infographic about people who live in Tiny Houses.
What is an infographic? Infographics are a visual way to share data
about an interesting topic. Instead of boring graphs and spreadsheets, we
are working with a graphic designer to tell the story with color and vivid
graphics. You can find many examples of Infographics on the web to get an
idea of what we hope to put together.
So we invite you to join us in
telling the tale of tiny house people, but we also have some neat rewards for
your help in our project!

Recently, I got the chance to talk with Ryan Mitchell of The Tiny Life
website about his exciting plans for a modified Fencl. Ryan has been blogging
about sustainability for a long time, sharing
information on simple living, tiny houses, and environmentally responsible
lifestyles. And we think he's awesome.
Ready for some holiday building
Now, he's working on a tiny house of his own in Charlotte, North Carolina. He's starting to get well into the
building process, and has been begun blogging about his experiences.
He admits that finding
time is no easy task- in addition to working on his house managing the very informative blog, Ryan
works two other day jobs! He sets a pretty good example for all those professionals that
fear they'd never have the time to build a house, huh?
Ryan has worked out an ideal situation for himself through yet another job
of sorts- he house sits for friends, and they're letting him build the house on
their property- as long as he looks after the land and mows the lawn every so often, he can be there
for free. This is a great arrangement- if you have anyone in your life with a
large piece of property that likes to travel, I'd highly recommend working out
A solid start
Ryan will be checking in with us throughout the process, and will share informative photos and videos of his build on our blog. He's excited to have a winter break from his
day jobs coming up soon for a solid couple weeks of building!
In the meantime, check out Ryan's Tiny House Checklist for a great
introduction to everything that goes into tiny house building.
