Why Is Moving to a Tiny Home a Good Idea?

by Emma

A tiny house is a small mobile home that includes a sleeping area, a small sink with tiny cabinets, a tiny shower, and a bed. It can be built on the ground or a wheeled platform, making them portable. 

Tiny homes are small, surrounded by extraordinary beauty and culture. Anyone can become attracted to their minimalist aesthetic, filled with elegance, by moving into a tiny home. Believe it or not, you can simplify your bills by moving into such homes and make your life stress-free.

Let us check out the reasons why moving into tiny houses is always the best deal.

  • Eco-friendly

One of the most common reasons people “go tiny” is to live a more healthy lifestyle. For a variety of reasons, these micro-houses are energy efficient. Because tiny dwellings are so little, they use less extra energy: heating, cooling, and lighting a small area is always easier than keeping up with a large home. In addition, tiny houses with solar panels have a much smaller carbon impact!

  • Maintenance costs are lower.

Isn’t this one of the most obvious advantages of a smaller home? Reduced maintenance! There’s just so much junk you can gather in a home that’s only 400 square feet (at most) (without going insane). 

Vacuuming, Dusting and sweeping take a few minutes. Repairs can also be done easily, ensuring that costs remain low, i.e., repairing a small roof is far less of a problem than repairing a bigger one!

  • Simple living

It’s no surprise that housing prices have been rising. You can lead a simple life by moving into tiny houses. You are not showing off anything to anybody. Even though households have dropped by around one person, housing sizes have increased by about 50%. The Tiny House Movement has been described as a grassroots revolt against extravagance. 

  • Multifunctionality

Many people like the notion of tiny homes but don’t want to live in one with a total living space of less than 400 square feet. Many families across the country are finding new uses for these small houses! They can be used as a guest house, mother-in-law suite, home office, studio, rental property, and much more. In some areas, such as Portland and Seattle, tiny house neighbourhoods have been used to tackle homelessness.

What Is the Price of a Tiny House?

Well, it depends on how you want it to be designed. If you are buying it brand new, your tiny home will go anywhere from $10k to $100k! However, it will have a functional electrical system, pipes and plumbing and anything you need.

However, most people decide to build this house themselves: if you’re no stranger to carpentry, you only need to buy the plans online for $40 and then build it yourself. 

Conclusion

So talk to your loved ones and decide what is best for you and your future. You can rent a tiny house and try it out for a month if you only want a taste of it before making the switch. If all goes according to plan, you’ve got your answer!
