Thoughts and feelings about home traditionally provided people of all cultures with a firm sense of where they belonged, and why. But with the world rapidly changing, many of our basic notions are becoming problematic. Both internationally and within countries, populations are constantly on the move, seeking better opportunities and living conditions, or an escape from violence and war. In spite of, or perhaps even because of these trends, ideas about home continue to shape the way people everywhere frame an understanding of their lives. In this Very Short Introduction Michael Allen Fox considers the complex meaning of home and the essential importance of place to human psychology. Drawing on a wide array of international examples he discusses what dwelling is and the variety of dwellings. Fox also looks at the politics of the concept of 'home', homelessness, refugeeism and migration, and the future of home, and argues that home remains a central organizing concept in human life. ABOUT THE SERIES: The Very Short Introductions series from Oxford University Press contains hundreds of titles in almost every subject area. These pocket-sized books are the perfect way to get ahead in a new subject quickly. Our expert authors combine facts, analysis, perspective, new ideas, and enthusiasm to make interesting and challenging topics highly readable.

Tiny House Movement In our country, everything is getting bigger. The more things that you have, the higher your status in most circles. But just because you have more stuff, a bigger house, more cars, and take more vacations, does not mean that you are happy. While the current American thought is that you should get as much as possible, there are many who want to change things up and see smaller as better. This is where the tiny home movement has begun. People don't see the point of having huge mansions just to hold their things. They see the current way of life as wasteful and hard on the environment. Instead of aiming for bigger, they aim for smaller; way smaller. In fact, the average tiny home is less than 400 square feet. Considering that the average American home is now more than 2000 square feet, this is a huge difference. Creating a tiny home, or a small home if you still like the idea of going smaller but can't handle the 400 square feet or smaller, can take a lot of work. You will most likely have to build your own home; there aren't many of these hanging around ready for you to purchase. And with building, you have a lot of little things to figure out, especially when you think about your limitations with space. This guidebook is here to help you get started with your tiny home. No matter how much experience you have with tiny homes, as a beginner or having studied up on it before, this guidebook is here to help. From learning more about what the tiny house movement is all about to some of the things you need to keep in mind in order to make the perfect tiny home, you are able to learn it all in this guidebook. Some of the things that you can learn in this guidebook to help you get started with the tiny home movement include: * What the tiny home movement is all about * Choosing the right location for your tiny home * How to build your tiny home including how much it will cost, how to save up money, and how to create a blueprint * Preparing each room in the home when you are limited on space * Decorating to get more out of your space * Other options for becoming self-sufficient to help the environment even more. * Tips and tricks to get more out of the tiny home The tiny home movement goes in the opposite direction of the prevalent schools of thoughts in America right now. People who follow this movement don't see bigger as better; they see bigger as wasteful and unnecessary. While getting used to a tiny home can take some time, it can be a very rewarding experience, saves you a lot of money, and will help you to simplify your life. Use this guidebook to learn all that you need about tiny homes so you can get started on your own tiny home today.

Very small buildings have a special appeal, and the constraints of space and cost can actually liberate the imagination. Most of the projects in this book consist of no more than a few key spaces, in many cases just a single space. They are united only by their compact nature, the pleasure that they can provide and the intelligence that they embody. A brief introduction is followed by five thematic chapters: Public Realm, Community Spaces, On the Move, Compact Living and Extra Space. The 53 case studies include a park bench that transforms into a shelter for the homeless in Australia, an inflatable treetop structure for rainforest observation, a portable house for victims of hurricane Katrina, a transportable church in Finland, and a suspended office in France.
