04 – Tiny Houses



This month, Shelf Understanding host Danny Rice discusses Tiny Houses with contractor Mike Robinson, a member of a local makeshift task force that is working with the City of Bloomington to reshape zoning laws in an effort to provide space for tiny houses for those in need of housing. Robinson is part of a team that constructed a 156-square-foot Tiny House which is now touring local sites. Rice also talks with Tiny House dwellers, Clare and Armondo Báez, organic farmers who spent nine months living on a 240-square-foot Skoolie – a 1973 Crown Coach School Bus – with their two sons who are both under the age of 5.
