About the Tiny House Movement

What's so big about tiny homes?

The tiny home movement advocates freedom through simplicity. In contrast to the average American home (2,600 square feet), small houses (400 square feet or less) reduce your footprint and leave more time for doing the things you love. Tiny home enthusiasts are simplifying their lifestyles due to environmental concerns, financial strains, and the innate desire to live debt free. For most Americans, up to half of their income is dedicated to the roof over their heads. Instead of living paycheck to paycheck, the tiny home movement is suggesting an alternative lifestyle, achieved by living in smaller homes and owning less stuff!
