Life from inside the tiny house movement
If Christina Neaf steps on a specific quadrant inside her home, she may find herself in three places all at once — her living room, kitchen and foyer.
Neaf, an environmental studies alumna, moved from Orlando to Grand Junction, Colorado after her August graduation to join the tiny home movement creeping along the Pacific Northwest.
Neaf said the decision came after wanting to reduce her carbon footprint while having the flexibility to travel. Her epiphany yielded the idea of purchasing and building a tiny house, which is mobile and can be hooked to the back of her Chevy Silverado 2500.
“I wanted an adventure and to be free. I wanted to be off-grid with low [ecological] impact,” Neaf said. “My tiny house is just under 200 square feet.”
