This book does a fantastic job of covering nearly every aspect of transferring your life into a tiny home, from the cost of materials to efficient housing plans to codes and regulations on all (government) levels what should actually be in your new home. Part game-plan, part self-help, part reference book, this frames the current tiny house movement.

— Ian
