Living Tiny Legally, Part 3 NOW In-Production
Anticipated Release: 2019
Living Tiny Legally is truly a passion project. It is our belief that legal acceptance is necessary to give more people the opportunity to live tiny, safely and without fear of eviction. This is crucial not just for the future of the tiny house movement, but for the future of housing in America.
The current housing market is sorely lacking in quality, attainable housing options. A better understanding of how to fully legalize tiny housing and the value it can bring a community, help both advocates and policy makers find a path forward. We make these films to inspire positive change, empower others into action and amplify the efforts of the many dedicated advocates that we document. It has been incredibly heart-warming to see our work inspire others into action.

This series provides an illustrative resource for those seeking to bring tiny housing to their city but don't know where to start.
