For you and me, the reasons to live in a tiny house are obvious by now…
- The cost savings
- Re-evaluating our values
- Downturn in the economy
- Enjoying a very little maintenance lifestyle
What motivates you might be more specific, like starting your own business or getting your family out of debt.
But what if you’re not living alone? What does a tiny house for a family look like then?
Simple living as a family
At this point, a tiny house sort of goes out the window. How many of you are in the a situation where you are not living alone?
Do YOU have a
- significant other, or
- family member
…that’s living with you?
Then for you, a small house is probably in the range of 400 to 1200 square feet, maybe even bigger if you have a large family.
A great example is a woman I’m interviewing right now who has a husband and two kids. They live simply in a 1200 square foot apartment and are on the verge of having an amazing overseas family adventure for an entire year. All thanks to happily living below their means.
Stay tuned for the interview so you can learn more about how the family is doing it. Meanwhile, will you tell us what you think about simple living as a family in the comments? Do you have your own story to share?
