These days, when it comes to buying a home, it seems like the motto is “think small.” That’s what the tiny-house movement is all about, anyway. These Lilliputian lodgings, often between 100 and 400 square feet (compared to the average 2,600-square-foot home), are touted as environmentally and economically wise investments. The thought of living in what some might consider a closet may seem unappealing, but most denizens of these minuscule domiciles go to great lengths to trick them out. See the results for yourself at the Tiny House Fest Vermont in Brattleboro. There will be seven abodes to explore, build-your-own courses, panels, vendors, demos and more.
