In the world we live in today, most people's ideal dream home would be large, extravagant, and ultimately much more than they need. But what if I told you that there are a group of people who are going against this notion and developing smarter, smaller (a lot smaller), and more sustainable homes? Well guess what? This is actually happening!
This is my absolute favorite example of a tiny house! This one was made by the wonderful lady pictured, Michelle de la Vega! She's a visual and performance artist that turned her 250 square foot garage into a home for $32,000!
There are a number of companies (Tumbleweed Tiny House Company, Mini Home, and Micro Compact Home to name a few) that build pre-made tiny homes that come with a vast selection of features including but not limited to solar panel energy, compost toilets, fireplaces that provide sufficient heat for temperatures of minus thirty five degrees, and not to mention all the eco-friendly material used in building these beautiful little homes.
However, if you're a crazy DIY-er like me, there are step by step plans all over the internet that can aid you in creating your very own, original tiny dream home (I found a few neat ones on Google, check them out: 1, 2, 3, 4, & 5)!
Here is another great example of a tiny home done by Jessica Helgerson!
There are so many benefits of owning a tiny home compared to a larger home such as affordability, better for the environment, and the designs and styles are so unique! So what do you think? Have I persuaded you to move into a tiny home or are you sticking with a more spacious living space? Feel free to share in the comments!
