The Tiny House: Is it a Phase or Craze? (NC Elective #3415) ​

NEW COURSE FOR 2016-2017
The “tiny house” movement can be traced back at least as far as Henry David Thoreau, and his book Walden, first published in 1854. His book was a reflection upon simple living in natural surroundings. Thoreau wrote, “I went to the woods because I wished to live deliber­ately…to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.” Topics include:

  • Origin of the tiny house
  • Basic structural elements and construction standards
  • Financing and valuing a tiny house
  • Tiny house communities​
