Dee Williams, who lives in a simple but stylish 84 square-foot home has started a company to help other people build their own mini-homes. It’s all part of the “tiny house” movement, a trend becoming more popular as people look for ways to save money, help the environment and simplify their lives.

Think this will this catch on? I don’t, at least in a big way. 84 square foot homes (or even 250) are simply too extreme. However, tiny homes are just a small part of a major and growing trend towards frugality and downsizing in general.

That trend has just begun. It is a crucial part of the deflationary environment in which we live.
