This month, “The Residential Specialist” magazine had it’s yearly Green Issue that covered a topic I have been hearing a lot about lately from my kids- The so called phenomenon of Tiny Homes. They are what the author calls a “real social movement.”
What is a Tiny Home?
Tiny Homes “come in a variety of shapes, sizes and designs, but what they have in common is a focus on smaller spaces and simpler lifestyles”
What are some benefits to owning a Tiny Home?
#1 They let homeowners reduce their carbon footprints.
#2 Home-related expenses such as utilities and maintenance are reduced.
#3 Great for individuals that want a simpler lifestyle.
#4 For young people that are struggling financially
#5 You aren’t paying property taxes because they are so small.
How much will a Tiny Home cost me and where can I live in my Tiny House?
Tiny homes typically range from about $20,000 to $60,000. Fortunately, they are highly mobile and many are built on wheels. Others that are not built on wheels can be easily placed on a trailer or moved to a parent’s backyard, for instance.
If Tiny Homes interest you, and you want to see/learn more, there is a TV show called “Tiny House Nation”.
Pretty cool concept. Don’t you think?
