The Tiny House Movement Gets the Ultimate Sendup

It hasn’t happened much in Philadelphia (though it has in Kennett Square), but in other parts of the country, throwing out all your junk and moving into an extrely tiny house has become the ultimate rejection of materialism, capitalism, global warmingism and every other -ism that is decidedly unhip. The online locus for this cozy culture is the Tiny House Blog, and it’s no surprise that the majority of the submissions the site gets are from the West Coast–and from Portland most of all.

Which naturally begs for some Portlandia-style mockery. The below video, Here It Is, by independent filmmaker Dawn Jones, was recently posted on the Natural Resources Defense Council’s Switchboard blog by Kaid Benfield.
