A house always starts with a plan, right? And there are a lot of benefits for people who decide they want to try to live small … in a small house.
The cost of living in a small (or tiny, depending on how far you take this) house is much more reasonable than living in a large house. Utilities are all less, and you spend much less time cleaning and maintaining your tiny house. And buying or building your own tiny house costs but a fraction of what living large does. You no longer need to live paycheck to paycheck with an exorbitant mortgage.
Tiny living also forces you to be organized with the things you choose to keep in your tiny house, and therefore is more efficient. Self-sufficiency is another big reason that people opt for the tiny house. Especially if your tiny house is mobile, you can pick up and go whenever you please.
