Here you can see Jay's small house (for his wife and baby) and his own tiny house along side.
These are two of his most recent interviews, the second one includes a full tour of his little home on wheels. This page is always being updated so you can save it and come back for more as they become available.
Jay was a guest speaker at the Toledo Museum of Art at the Small
Worlds Exhibition. In the video above you get to listen to him speak
for over an hour on the topic.
The interview above was shot around 2009 so it's a few years old but still discusses some of the reasons behind the tiny/small house movement and why Jay decided to downsize to such an extremely small home.
