Tiny House on CBC Mainstreet Cape Breton

On Thursday, January 8, 2015, Matthew Willox, Owner/Operator of Howling Dog Construction, joined host Wendy Bergfeldt on CBC’s Mainstreet Cape Breton to discuss the Tiny House movement and designing and building a Tiny Home right here in Cape Breton. Here’s how Wendy introduced the segment.

Since 1973 the size of the average home has grown by 50%, but that trend seems to be reversing. The tiny house movement is about getting less space for a lot less cost. It’s about living more simply and about not having things you don’t really need. This is a great idea if you live in California or Arizona where you don’t have to worry about the winter cold but in Canada is a tiny house a possibility? Some people think it is. Matthew Willox is a contractor who’s building one for a couple right here in the Cape Breton Regional Municipality.

    This is such an important project and really putting grand ideals of living simply into action. I don’t think most people would be able to do the “Tiny House” thing. I think it’s fascinating and I look forward to learning more about it.
