The tiny house movement has been growing in popularity worldwide for the past couple years. These tiny living spaces are easy to maintain and can be energy efficient. But, that's just the beginning to all the benefits to tiny house living.
No Mortgages or house payments
Tiny houses are way more affordable than brick and mortar homes. Even so that you don't have to take out a mortgage or go through a sometimes depressing housing market to obtain one. A typical tiny house can be bought for less than a new or used automobile most times. They are very easy obtained too. You can buy them from a utility shed dealer, Home Depot,Lowe's, or even just use a utility shed to make a tiny home of your own for just pennies on the dollar!
Very easy to maintain
Tiny houses do not require much electricity or gas as much as bigger houses. So utility bills may be less than what you would pay with a typical house. They are also easier to keep clean and maintain. Smaller spaces with less people mean less utilities and maintenance is needed.
They are very moveable.
One of the biggest benefits of having a tiny home is the ability to just hitch it to a truck and drive it to a new location.
Whether you’re trying to move to a new spot of land or just go on vacation without having to pack up some suitcases, having a tiny home makes it surprisingly easy to see new places.
Different tiny homes are built in different ways. Some are equipped with rainwater collection and solar panels. They are designed to live completely off the grid and can be parked just about anywhere you want. Other tiny homes are built more traditionally, needing power and water hookups. They are better suited to dedicated plots of land or RV/mobile home parking.
No matter how you design your tiny home, its potential mobility is a huge benefit. So yes you can take it travelling.
You can be environmentally friendly
Because your house is going to be so small, you can make a lot of it out of recycled, re-purposed, and salvaged materials. In addition to making your house look cool and unique, it also saves that same amount of new materials from being made.
Like I mentioned previously , you can also set up your home to live off the grid. Using solar or wind resources to give your house power, using a rainwater catch and filtration system, and installing a composting toilet are all steps to enabling your tiny house to be functional anywhere in the world.
