Human Scale Housing

My friend Debbie Douma sent this link today to a TED TALK on the Tiny House movement by Andrew Morrison.  What’s great about this video is the rational behind why living closer to “human scale” improves our lives, our work, and the environment.

Calculate the percent of your weekly income, the percent of hours you devote to housing costs, and consider how living closer to human scale improves relationships with the people we love the most.

  1. Great little talk! I don’t know why Debbie hasn’t recommended your blog to me yet! I was only able to browse around a little, but I’m looking forward to reading some more of your posts! Thanks for sharing.

  2. Interesting stats. After returning from Denver and seeing their new house in progress, we definitely relate! You’re definitely ahead of the curve! =)
