The Tiny House Movement has become a world wide phenomenon and its participants are actually obsessed with tiny living. People are finding the idea of downsizing their lives and making life more simple and uncluttered very attractive. The benefits of living tiny are many and varied, but one of the most attractive is that for less than $20,000 you can build – or have built – your very own tiny house and live without the albatross of a monthly mortgage. This tiny house is 320 square feet large and was built for less than $20,000.
Living in a tiny house forces you to find out what really matters to you. You will definitely have to give a lot of your “stuff” away, but in the end you will have all your most loved items and will have decluttered your life significantly. And without a mortgage your cost of living goes down dramatically. You will find that living in a smaller space does not mean you have to give up your creature comforts and having no mortgage leaves extra money for adventures in traveling, dining out, going to concerts and other entertainment.
This tiny house can be completely mobile and you can change your views and location on a whim. And if you have solar panels, collect rainwater and compost waste, you can live totally “off grid’ and be completely self contained and self sufficient. No mortgage to pay frees you up considerably. You will find that tiny homes like this one are extremely versatile and practical. There is much less to spend on maintenance and upkeep, cleaning can be done in minutes, and everything is at your fingertips.
