Not sure what a tiny home is? Here’s a quick explainer
A tiny house is about 400 to 600 square feet. People who adopt the tiny house lifestyle do it for lots of reasons. You get lower utility costs and less maintenance since they’re easy to upkeep.
Novelty is another compelling factor. Since most people live in standard-sized houses, you can get bragging rights. If you love showing off, here are some pricey tech gadgets that will impress anyone in your life.
Then again, you can also buy a tiny house in addition to your main home. Tiny homes make great offices, fitness studios, greenhouses, storage sheds, Airbnb rentals and more. The possibilities are endless: If you can dream it, you can do it.
