Extreme KonMari: Tiny House Living

Have you heard of the tiny house movement?  It’s a social movement where people are downsizing to smaller spaces that range from 100 to 400 square feet!  To take that into perspective, just imagine living in a house the size of two 8×10 ft bedrooms!Juju Sprinkles Extreme KonMari Tiny House 14

This weekend, I attended a tiny house meetup at a local community college and oh boy, was that an experience.  Talk about simple living!  I got to tour a newly built tiny house called “the Dandelion”.  It was a school project built by students enrolled in their tiny house program.  The total space is only 144 square feet, but it has all the standard features of a house.  I really like the tiny house concept because it’s a mobile home that can be customized to feel just like a real home.   Juju Sprinkles Extreme KonMari Tiny House DandelionHumble entrance

Ever since I discovered tiny houses, I have been thinking about how many things I need to get rid of in order to live in such a small space.  To be honest, I don’t know if I could downsize my precious belongings to fit into a 200 square feet home.  But then again, maybe I will realize that I don’t really need to own so many “spark joy” things.  Either way, I think it’s safe to call all the tiny house dwellers “KonMari pros”, don’t you think?  Juju Sprinkles Extreme KonMari Tiny House 15
