Is “Bigger Better”, or should you “K.I.S.S”?
When it comes to homes there seems to be a growing trend. Literally. Our homes are literally growing. Over the past decade, homes have nearly doubled in size leaving everyone to believe that bigger really is better. But, the “Tiny House Movement” is gaining traction, giving “Bigger is Better” a run for it’s money, urging more and more people to “Keep it Simple, Stupid”!
Benefits of living in a tiny house
The Tiny House Movement began in 1997 and has since then gained a lot of popularity. Not only are tiny houses a great alternative for families who want to live in the city where space is limited. But our growing need to protect and preserve our environment has left many opting for a smaller home. Plus, not everyone can afford a mansion, so a tiny house is a great new way for everyone to realize their dream of becoming a homeowner.
- Environmentally friendly – Not only do you save on the greenhouse gas emissions from the construction of the home itself, but you’ll also save on heating, cooling and lighting your tiny home once it’s finished
- Less space to clean and maintain – who isn’t looking to cut back on time spent cleaning their home?
- Simple – A smaller home means less space, and less space means less room for knick knacks and other possessions. It’s a great way to de-clutter your life and focus on the things that really matter
Just because these homes are small and eco-friendly doesn’t mean that they aren’t susceptible to all the same problems as a bigger home. The construction of a tiny house is exactly the same as that of a mansion.That means that even a tiny stucco house can have big faulty stucco installation problems, and tiny houses are just as susceptible to damage due to natural disasters, old age or accidents.
