Tiny houses are gaining momentum across the board as a route of escaping an overly-taxing life because this revolution is entirely about simplification. That meant cutting down on size, costs, wastefulness, and the pressure to keep up with the Joneses.
The average tiny house is less than 400 square feet. So even at its largest, a tiny house is less than one-sixth the size of the average American home. And tiny houses are completely personalized, because the design possibilities are limitless. Some look like small cottages, some look like a log cabin, some are mobile, some are stationed somewhere scenic (see some beautiful tiny homes here). The only unifying thought behind most tiny houses is to maximize your life by simplifying your living space.
If you’ve got a small living space, you’re free to focus on keeping your life moving. Less cleaning, less clutter, less upkeep. And less of an environmental footprint, because many tiny houses run off clean energy such as solar.
