Wondering what the pros and cons of tiny houses are? Thinking about living small?
Tiny homes are becoming more and more popular each year. Plus, there are so many different options for tiny homes.
You could live in an RV, boat, van, treehouse, build a small home, and more.
After several years of living in smaller homes, I feel like I am a pro at it – haha! When I was just 18 years old, the first place I rented was a very small house (it didn’t even have a bedroom, the bathroom was tiny, and my head almost touched the ceiling in the basement). I have also lived in a camper van, RV, and sailboat.
All of those places have been much smaller than the average house size.
In fact, according to the National Association of Home Builders, the average new single-family home is 2,561 feet.
After living in tiny homes for so long, the average size house sounds big, even though I know most people don’t feel that way.
When we were thinking about living small, we weighed up the pros and cons of tiny houses and chose it because we wanted to travel with our home. Being able to bring our home with us and travel at the same time meant that we could bring everything with us and visit new places.
Some people decide on a tiny house because it can help you save money, or perhaps, you simply want to live in a smaller space with less stuff. Maybe you know that you don’t need much space to be happy!
I am obviously biased, but even I will admit that living in a tiny house isn’t always easy.
So, what are the disadvantages of a tiny home? Are tiny houses really worth it? Is it cheaper to build or buy a tiny house? How do tiny houses get water and electricity?
These are all questions that I will answer in today’s article about the pros and cons of tiny houses. [Read more…]
