With the influx of tiny house tv shows, tiny house blogs and all the tiny house eye candy on Pinterest and the like, more and more questions (and opinions!) about why the heck someone would choose to live tiny are popping up around the interwebs. In the hopes that we can share a little of our tiny house living insights, here are a few reasons why tiny house living may be right for you.
Tiny House Living for Small-Space Lovers
You know that person who grew up reading in closets, building cozy forts, hiding in piles of clothes? (No? Just us?) Some people just can’t get enough of those small, safe spaces that create feelings of comfort and contentment. If you’re a small space lover then, naturally, tiny house living is perfect for you.
Tiny House Living for Debt-Free Life Seekers
When it comes to mortgage-free home ownership, there are few ways that make as much financial sense as tiny house living. When you consider that a tiny house can often be funded outright in cash, the release of the mortgage shackles becomes extremely appealing to adventurers, free-spirits and anyone who doesn’t want the monthly payments of home ownership looming over their heads.
Tiny House Living for “Normal House” Saving
There are people who use tiny house living as a stepping stone to a “normal house”. Tiny house living allows future homeowners the opportunity to build-up resources in a competitive housing market, while still having their own place they can call home. Once these tiny house dwellers have moved to their “normal house”, they may sell their tiny houses, or park them on their property as guest suites for visitors. You can even find some of these tiny houses on airbnb!
Tiny House Living for Empty Nesters
When all the kids, dogs, cats, etc have left home, some homeowners find themselves not knowing what to do with all the excess space. There are more and more empty nesters headed in the direction of tiny house living as they look for alternatives to apartment and condo living in retirement years. A tiny house brings a sense of retirement freedom with no worries about high monthly cost of living.
