TINY HOUSE LIVING IS SUSTAINABLE LIVING: “Tiny House Basics” is an adventure in off grid living! In their debut book, tiny house living experts Shelley and Joshua Engberg show you how you can join the revolution to downsize to small space living without giving up everything you hold dear. This is not about downsizing drastically, or giving up a lot of your necessities. They show you how your life still can be comfortable and entertaining in a tiny house living environment. This is about redefining what a house is and mastering organization, location and happiness. You can still keep your closet full and pantry stocked.

TINY HOUSE LIVING TIPS AND TRICKS: As avid campers and off roaders, Shelley and Joshua present the best tips and tricks to help you enter the world of small space living. You will learn about:

• How to maintain a good relationship in a small space
• Practical downsizing for everyone
• Small space living with pets
• The pros and cons of off grid living and on grid living
• How to make your small space feel big
• Keeping your small space feeling fresh with practical storage solutions and design tips
• Equipping your space for entertaining
• Accordion/bi-fold style windows
• How downsizing and simplifying your life will allow you more freedom and time

 

Editorial Reviews: 

“Tiny House Basics gives you a front row seat to the mindset and process of becoming a tiny house dweller for the long haul.”

– Steven Harrell, Owner of Tiny House Listings

“Shelley and Joshua offer great advice on how to make a tiny house work for two. They demonstrate how a strong foundation and good communication are essential — not only in building a tiny house, but in living and thriving in one!”

– Alek Lisefski, from The Tiny House Project

“It is one thing to read a book about the theory of a transition. It is quite another to read one based on someone’s personal testimony of transition. Joshua and Shelley have nailed it in regards to balancing tips with case study. Their emphasis on being realistic in all things – from design to daily living – is both important and inspiring. In my 9 years of being active in the modern tiny house movement I have not yet read such a well thought out book for those at all stages of the “going tiny” process.

Andrew M. Odom, Tiny r(E)volution, author, speaker, and practical strategist

 

About the Authors:

Joshua Engberg is one-half of the duo behind Tiny House Basics. In the summer of 2014, Joshua and his wife, Shelley, started to build their first tiny house. The goal was to simplify their lives and return to the basics. Downsizing and redefining ‘necessities’ was only the beginning. As avid campers and off-road fans, they were used to smaller spaces and only having essentials on trips. So they thought, ‘why not live like this 365 days a year?’ Moving into a Tiny House was a new challenge that brought its highs and lows. With the help of Tiny House Nation and many talented friends, they finished their self-designed 374 sqft home in 18 Days! Today they live in their tiny house full time and couldn’t be happier.
