The Tiny House movement is gaining momentum as an antithesis to rising housing prices. As people struggle to save enough money to buy their own properties, tiny homes offer a sustainable and affordable alternative. The small home design is usually on wheels which means home owners are able to bypass many of the permits which make building so expensive.
As tiny homes are so small and versatile, they can be placed just about anywhere and moved as the mood strikes. Even if you outgrow your tiny home, it makes a great guest house and can also be sold easily. Tiny homes free owners of mortgages, rent and the kind of overheads that would otherwise keep them in a 9-5 job. As they have unique locations they could also rent them using companies such as Global Guardians for when they travel.
Tiny homes are easy to take off-grid, giving home owners complete autonomy and helping to reduce their carbon footprints. Here are some of our favorite tiny homes:
