  • Published on December 27th, 2011 by

Tiny houses are here to stay. In recent years, with the mainstream success of Tumbleweed Tiny House Company, housing prices going through the roof, greater awareness of sustainable and ecological living issues, living in tiny homes has become an attractive option for increasing numbers of people.

Deek of Relax Shacks has posted his top 10 tiny houses books for folks interested in designing or living in their own small home.

Living in a Tiny House

Deek’s Top 10 list includes favorites such as Home Work, Radical Simplicity, Shelters, Shacks, and Shanties, and some other lesser known books on the subject of living the small life.

These are books meant to inspire and educate about how living in a tiny house can be liberating, and an act of living environmentally.

On a related note, Lloyd Kahn of Shelter Publications has been working on his own book  about tiny living, titled: Tiny Homes: Simple Shelter. The book is due out in February 2012. Yahoo!
