SWITCHBOARD 'DWELLZ' - THE TINY HOUSE
By SBM Staff

Nara's tiny house is one part sustainable living, one part college credit, and three parts swag.
After spending her fall semester studying various forms of American alternative housing, she hooked up with Tumbleweed Tiny House Company and got the (literal) wheels moving on a sweet deal: a semester of tiny house occupancy in exchange for promotional blogging.
Despite black ice, miscommunication with truckers, and a giant blizzard, the house finally made it all the way from Wisconsin to Hampshire College. As of Friday, she lives in it full-time.
By day, Nara works on sustainable utility solutions and writes about housing. By night, she curls up next to her tiny propane fireplace and dreams of a world where everyone lives within their means. She's happy to show you around her 130 square feet of unfinished pine, but thinks this episode of 'Dwellz' is probably enough.
Caveat: this will make more sense if you spent your adolescence watching MTV's 'Cribs'.
