Building and living a tiny house is the craze in many places these days. I personally enjoy watching both cable and TV programs that showcase the creation of these masterpieces from scratch. Apart from always being in awe of the finish products, i have come to a realization why living in a tiny house is practical and helpful to those who are opting to save a lot of money. Here are a few of my thoughts.
Building a tiny house is cost efficient. You don't have to hire an engineer, an architect, an interior designer and a group of construction workers to build it. If you have time and skills, you can build it on your ow. This already means a lot of money saved on labor costs. You will just have to spend on the materials. As for the design, there are free floor plans available online.
You can travel in it. Some tiny houses are built in such a way that they can be easily pulled by a mini truck. If you can travel to any location in your house, you don't have to worrying about hiring and paying someone else to guard your house while you're on a vacation. For added comfort and usability, you can even equip your tiny house rainwater collection equipment and solar panels. Consequently, you're able to save on electricity and water.
Living in it teaches you to spend your money wisely. You cannot stuff a lot of things in a tiny house. It can only hold the basic things you need for survival and a few more for your entertainment and hobbies. Living in it will train you to think twice before you buy anything with your extra money.
