There’s Nothing Wrong with Tiny Houses by Hollie Downes
When many people hear the words dream house, they may think about a McMansion with 4000 square feet or even more. For many other people, however, that dream is out-of-reach or may not even fit their own visions of the perfect home. For many reasons, more people are opting for tiny houses. When imagining its size, think about a covered wagon instead. Most tiny houses range somewhere between 100 and 150 square feet.
Top 7 Tiny House Benefits
Many people can save for and build their own houses without incurring massive debt. A tiny house moves them out of rentals or asphyxiating mortgages and into their own place.
* Environmental friendliness
A tiny house is much kinder to the environment than the old sprawling single-family home. It is much more energy and resource efficient.
* Economy of size
Tiny houses are highly efficient dwellings. The space that is eliminated is unnecessary and inefficient space. Tiny houses make maximum use of every square foot of space. These are the homes of the future. A homeowner can live without debt, in comfort and with everything he needs. As the tiny house revolution saying has it, you can only live in one room at a time. If the space you’re in has everything you need, you don’t need more room.
* You won’t need a huge lot
With many tiny houses, you can even move them like mobile homes. Don’t like a lot you purchased? Drag the tiny house to a new one.
* Easier to keep-up and clean
Because of the efficiency of space, the interior mess never truly gets out of hand without a lot of help from the owner. Most house cleaning takes a matter of minutes and not hours. Keeping up a tiny house is easier than trying to maintain a large one.
* Much cheaper to heat and cool
You won’t need to spend money on conditioning all that air you walk through but never use.
* A tiny house is very thrifty where furniture and decorating are concerned.
There isn’t all that space you feel duty-bound to fill, lest your living room look vacant. You’ll only have to buy the pieces you need. You can buy higher quality furniture because of the fewer pieces required. Decorating will be much easier and more basic in a smaller environment.
The tiny house revolution is ideal for many younger people who can’t afford a conventional home. It’s also perfect for retired people who want to downsize their lifestyles and expenses. With a tiny house, there is no need to opt for a trailer park and rented land or an apartment building.
Most tiny houses are designed to have everything a modern person needs to live. They feature a kitchen, a bathroom, a living room, storage and some even sleep up to four people. It may not be everybody’s dream house, but for people seeking simplicity and another way of life, tiny houses might just be the way to go.
