Are You Thinking About The Tiny House Movement
The Tiny House Movement is really a social movement; people are searching for a way to downsize, especially their living space. The typical American home is around 2600 square feet, while the typical small or tiny house is around 100 to 400 square feet. Tiny Houses come in all shapes, sizes, and forms, but the central themes are smaller spaces and simplified living.
The most popular reasons driving the Tiny House Movement are environmental concerns, financial concerns, and seeking more time and freedom. For most Americans 1/3 to 1/2 of their income is dedicated to the roof over their heads. This means you dedicate just over 15 years of your working life to pay for a house.
Tiny living really encompasses:
- Life Simplification
- Environmental Consciousness
- Self Sufficiency
- Social Consciousness
When you start to explore this as a possibility you are going to find that there are some significant challenges to making this work.
The cost of land, housing codes, access to financing, and the dramatic change in lifestyle are all challenges.
