Have you seen any tiny houses? What is the tiny house trend? And, more importantly, why do people choose tiny homes?

This trend toward tiny houses the people are choosing to downsize the space they live in, simplify, and live with less things. People are loving the freedom that comes with the tiny house lifestyle.

Love the show Living Big In a Tiny House. This house is gorgeous. Check out the video below.


What is a tiny house? How big (or small, rather) is a tiny house anyway? Well, the typical American home is around 2,600 square feet, whereas the typical small or tiny house definition is a home with square footage is between 100 and 400 square feet.

Tiny homes may be rented or owned. You may choose a mini home on wheels or your small home may set on a foundation. Some are even parked on land with other buildings or a larger home. Some tiny houses are designed and put together by owners , while others are purchased, or built from a tiny house kit. Tiny houses offer a simpler living lifestyle, and making more ways of using their space.

Some folks thing bigger is better and that's not always true. It turns out there are many highlights to the tiny home movement. Of course, people may try this new movement out  for any number of reasons, but the most popular reasons include environmental concerns, concerns about money, and the desire for more time and freedom.

The tiny life provides huge financial advantages and the ability to live a lifestyle filled with adventure. For most Americans, a lot of their income is dedicated to the roof over their heads. A lot of their income goes to rent or a house payment.

Also with a bigger house it's a lot more time spent cleaning or organizing and more money spent on things to fill the space like new furniture.

I think this will become a big trend in the future. I think they are pretty neat, but it wouldn't work out for my family of four. That's just not enough room for me. I like my space. If it was just me, by myself I swear I would already have one. I just can't wait to see a tiny house development in the future.
