10 Reasons to go Tiny

  1. Freedom
    Simpler lifestyle, frees up your leisure time and your finances; allows you to make the decision of where you want to live, different places at different times of the year.
  2. More disposable income
    With fewer bills to pay and little to no mortgage, you’ll have money to spend on other things and go places you’d like to go.
  3. Smaller energy bills
    Tiny homes equate to tinier utility bills; the mobility allows you to utilize shade in summer, sun in winter.
  4. Less to clean
    What used to take several hours to clean can be accomplished in much less time and there is less to maintain and/or repair.
  5. Environmentally friendly
    Less use of energy, resources & building materials.

  6. Downsizing
    There is no room to accumulate items that aren’t necessary and you’ll be less inclined to spend money on items you don’t need.
  7. Health
    Having a smaller indoor space encourages outdoor living; with less storage for food, living tiny encourages the purchase of fresh foods on a regular basis resulting in less waste.
  8. Family, Friends & Sense of Community
    A sense of closeness prevails in less square footage, plus you’ll have more time to spend with family and friends. Since your belongings have been minimized, you may be inclined to borrow infrequently used items from neighbors and friends.

  9. Versatility
    There are so many uses for a tiny home; primary residence, weekend getaway, hunting or fishing cabin, student housing, guest housing or a hospitality suite at sporting events.


  1. Level of happiness
    By reducing your cost of living and your stress level, there is a positive impact on your overall level of happiness. Larger homes and more possessions don’t necessarily make you happier.
