** The Big Tiny by Dee Williams


The Big Tiny: A Built-It-Myself Memoir is not a memoir of building and living in a tiny house (although a tiny house is duly built and lived in over the course of the book). It’s really the story of an existential crisis that motivated the move into said tiny house, much in the way that Wild told the story of hiking the Pacific Crest Trail as remedy for a breakup.

In fact, the tiny house is not exactly a complete shelter, as it lacks a shower, or even running water, and despite the custom trailer it is built on, resides permanently in the backyard of a traditional house with traditional fittings (and the missing shower). Still, it provides an interesting exploration of what we really need to live comfortably  — and that’s not the average 2000-square foot house!
