My name is Kent Griswold and I have developed this blog because of my love of small spaces. Started in 2007 the Tiny House Blog was one of the first blogs out on the internet to start spreading the word of the modern day tiny house movement.

My interest in tiny spaces started with my love for small simple cabins and the different ways in which they could be constructed. This and stumbling across Jay Shafer’s website Tumbleweed Tiny Houses and learning how to blog at that time. The goal of the tiny house blog is to discover the different options available for a person looking to downsize into a tiny house or cabin. I will be looking at different type of construction, from logs, to yurts to modern and the unusual. I will also do book reviews, look at alternate energy for heat and electricity. I also want to hear your story so please contact me with your pictures and your own experiences in living simply and small. I want to encourage feedback and ideas to make this an informative blog. Stories of people who are living this dream. Pictures of tiny houses and cabins, etc.

My goal is to publish daily if possible. Thank you for sharing in this experience with me.

The Tiny House Blog also publishes the Tiny House Magazine which started in 2013, an eMagazine available in PDF version and iOS.
