You may have seen John’s unboxing video when he
ordered his bushcraft books, if not here’s the video ^^^

We went and did the same thing again for our Tiny House Prep show (coming soon).

So, with so many resources reviewed, we’ve compiled a list of the true winners – not all of the books in those videos are included here.

You’ll also find tiny house books and courses in this list that aren’t directly about living in a tiny home, but still closely linked to the lifestyle (such as growing edible plants of raising chickens, for example).

Here we go…

Tiny House Books DIRECTLY related to the lifestyle:

Raising Chickens

The Lost Ways

Grow It!

Easy to follow cellar plans: The good news about your tiny home is that you’ve cut back on unnecessary cost and given yourself a more comfy way of life. A cellar is the key to keep saving money and cutting back on food waste like never before.

Solar Energy (Beginner to Advanced)

Bushcraft Books:

The Bushcraft Field Guide to Trapping, Gathering, and Cooking in the Wild

Bushcraft First Aid: A Field Guide to Wilderness Emergency Care

How To Eat In the Woods: As with the plans for building a cellar, this is all about maximizing your health and wallet by leveraging what your environment has to offer to your dinner plate. Amazing book.

The SAS Survival Handbook: John discovered this one back in 1999 and has been obsessed with it ever since. Everything from how to cook jellyfish and cobra to surviving a nuclear holocaust (good times!).

The Ultimate Bushcraft Survival Manual


Cool Stuff on YouTube:

My Self Reliance: A HUGE discovery for us as we had no idea how much is possible in terms of building something by hand. Simply amazing what Shawn James has built for himself over the course of just one year.

Primitive Technology: Biggest surprise on YouTube to date. This is truly the most ideal resource for anyone on a tight budget looking to get their tiny house dreams established quickly.
