Famous Tiny House Dwellers
s surprising as some might find it, not all Hollywood A-listers and sports stars live in the McMansions that are typically expected of… Hollywood A-listers and sports stars.
HOWEVER, there are those few, those very special few who have decided to resist the expected and live an easier, more simple, and tiny lifestyle!
Kicking off these rebel celebs is A-lister and Oscar Award winner Mathew McConaughey who lived in a customized 2004 Airstream trailer in 2008, only 7 years ago! Although no longer a bachelor and having expanded his footprint, McConaughey still has his Airstream parked in Malibu where he uses it as an office and headquarters for his music, production, and clothing company, j.k. livin. McConaughey might have left the tiny house but the tiny house hasn’t left him as he’s currently in the midst of customizing two more Airstream trailers!

What many also don’t know is that in the pursuit to further enjoy life and focus on what matters to him, Shadyac denounced the typical standard of success and downsized from his 17,000 square-foot mansion to a 1000 sq.ft. mobile home in Malibu.
Last but not least is the Toronto Blue Jay’s number one prospect, Daniel Norris. Norris is definitely not your typical professional athlete. He has a $2 million signing bonus, a deal with a Nike, a consistent 92mph fast ball, and a… 1978 Westfalia van that he lives in and parks at Wal-Mart… He’s a… Well he sort of… Just check out Vice Sport’s video.
