Have you ever seen a tiny house?
Apparently, part of the downsizing movement has helped increase the popularity of Tiny Houses. They range in size from 65 square feet to a few hundred square feet and if you are an average American, you would probably say that is indeed tiny. If the small size weren’t enough of an adjustment, fitting all your possessions into a space that small would even be a challenge for a minimalist. But they have many enthusiasts and the trend seems to be growing.
Most of them are fully functional – including a kitchen, bathroom, living, and sleeping area and as you would expect they make tremendously efficient use of every inch of space. Obviously, this type of living isn’t for everyone, but tiny housers love it because…
- You can move most of them anywhere since they are often wheels
- Tiny house living requires just a fraction of the resources that others use
- There is a lot less to clean!
- How quick could you pay off a mortgage on a 100 sq. ft house?
How about a tour of a tiny house?
Text just doesn’t do the Tiny house justice, you really need to see one to understand…
I am very intrigued by ideas like this. While I don’t think I will ever do anything that small, I think there is a lot that we can learn from tiny housers. If they really can fit all their possessions into a house that is smaller than my bedroom – shouldn’t I be able to quit complaining that I don’t have enough space?
What do you think? Would you ever consider living in a house like this?
