Jersey City Newlyweds Search for Tiny House on Large Rural Lot

Newlyweds Adam and Karen are tired of city life, so they're trading their 750-square-foot condo in Jersey City, NJ, for a place in the country. The catch? They want to downsize, so they're looking for a tiny house on a large secluded plot of land. But exactly how tiny the house should be is up for debate. Sustainability consultant Adam thinks they should go for something less than 500 square feet, while Karen's idea of downsizing isn't quite so radical. As a teacher and artist, she still wants to have room for her art supplies and paintings, not to mention her clothes! And that's not the end of their disagreements: Adam thinks they should forego a septic system and get a composting toilet, an idea that Karen is definitely not okay with. She wants something that flushes! Can these two work out their differences and find the tiny house of their dreams?
