Tiny Home Tours Presents

The Tiny Living Course

A comprehensive roadmap to go from traditional to tiny -- your way

Who is this for?

The Tiny Living Course was created for you! If you've ever been curious about creating a more intentional lifestyle, living minimally, working from anywhere, or trying to live more with less, this course is for you. Our instructors have a combined 22 years of tiny living experience- we've traveled and worked in tiny homes, camper vans, converted school buses, RVs, airstreams, pop-up campers, and more! Additionally, Tiny Home Tours has filmed more than 500 unique tiny homes across the United States and Canada. We've taken all of that knowledge and created a course that will take you from traditional to tiny in no time.

Meet your instructors

Chris Penn

Chris has been living tiny since March of 2010. A few weeks before graduating from college, he purchased a Ford Econoline van, outfitted it with simple cabinets, and traveled with his husky for a few months. Since then, he has lived and traveled in three other rigs. He currently lives and travels full time in a 2002 Blue Bird school bus conversion that was specifically built to live off of the grid for months at a time on public land.

Here's how it works



Modules are broken down into video lessons with one of the five instructors (+ sometimes we bring in our friends as guest teachers or for exclusive interviews). Many modules also include downloadable workbooks.


Live Q&As

Engage directly with the course instructors via video chat in bi-weekly, 90-minute, live, question-and-answer sessions.



Connect with fellow students, learn together, and interact in our private community on Circle.

You've got questions? We've got answers!

When does the course start and end?
The course is completely self-paced and you can take as long as you need to complete it. Plus, you can skip around and learn whatever you're in the mood for, there is no forced order or required sections to complete. 

What is included in the course?

More than 60 instructional videos led by our 5 instructors, many featuring insights from other tiny dwellers and examples from our 500+ tours of tiny spaces on YouTube. We've also created 6 downloadable workbooks packed full of information and exercises + useful items like budget templates and checklists. You'll also have access to our private Circle group where you can connect with other people in the course, share your experiences, and ask questions. Lastly, we'll host live 90-minute question and answer sessions where you can engage directly with the instructors.

How long will this take me?

That's completely up to you! Most video lessons are between 5-20 minutes long though there are more in-depth modules (in particular, the section on mobile income and finances) that include classes that are an hour or more. The course is completely self-paced, which means you can take as little or as much time as you need. As far as your tiny living journey is concerned, in our experience, one year is a pretty average time to transition from a traditional lifestyle into a tiny one!

Is this course right for me?

If you've ever thought to yourself, "I think I could have more with less" this course is for you! The Tiny Living Course is designed to introduce tiny curious people to the myriad of living options out there that put more emphasis on freedom and happiness than on physical objects. It's also for you if you know you want to go tiny but would like help designing your space or learning more about the tiny lifestyle.

Okay, but really, can I do this?

Yes! You've got this! If you have any desire at all to live a more intentional lifestyle then it is completely within your power to go tiny. We've seen and heard it all! We'll host bi-weekly, 90-minute, live Q&As so you can talk directly with your instructors and you'll have access 24-7 to a community of other students to connect with and help hold you accountable to achieving your goals. If you want this, you can do it! 

Will it be difficult?

While the course itself isn't difficult (in fact, it's very easy to follow!), this is a MAJOR lifestyle change. We can't sugar coat it for you, it will absolutely be hard. Some of the people in your life will be confused as to why you would want to stop chasing the white-picket-fence, big house, big car, next promotion kind of existence, but, we're telling you, this is WAY better. Plus, as an enrolled student of The Tiny Living Course, we'll be with you every step of the way and you'll have access to other students making the same lifestyle shift as you! If you don't love it, we'll refund 100% of your money back, guaranteed.
