That is the question, right? Let’s explore that questions below.

VIDEO: He Built a $1,500 tiny house in Orlando and is growing his own food, too…

Rob Greenfield built his tiny house using 99% reclaimed and secondhand materials and while doing so generated just 30 lbs. of waste. But that’s not all. He grows his own food, has an outdoor kitchen, bathroom, composting system, micro garden, and he even has a way to convert food scraps into gas for cooking.

VIDEO: She went tiny so she could achieve financial freedom

After renting apartments for over ten years, Natasha decided she would go tiny. That was after watching almost every tiny house video on YouTube and attending a tiny house festival in Lantier, QC. This is where she met Lumbec, a tiny house construction company. They’re the ones who built her dream tiny house. Natasha found a legal place to live in it year-round in an RV-park.

VIDEO: WARNINGS Before You Go Tiny: What STINKS About Living in a Tiny House and Why You Might End Up Hating It

We actually did an entire post on this right here where we go more in-depth into the topic. We called the post, “Why you might hate your tiny house.” That’s why it’s important to try it out for yourself.

Think it through. Be sure that the pros outweigh the cons for you. And also, be sure that the cons are not deal-breakers for you. Remember, you don’t have to go tiny. You can go small! Or you can even stay where you are now and simplify other parts of your life anyway. Like your wardrobe and other belongings.

How do you think your life would be like if you went tiny? Would it be better than it is now, you think? Why?

    That’s a cool tiny house. I always through the ultimate tiny house is a truck camper. 7 x 15 feet inside with all the amenities; AC, heater, hot water, bathroom with shower, stove/oven, refrigerator, microwave oven, sink, solar cells, and a queen size bed.
