Over the past 4 years, I’ve been forced through HGTV binge-watching to notice the ever-growing movement of the tiny home. If you’re unfamiliar with the term ‘Tiny Home’, a tiny home is basically just what it sounds like, and more.
Most tiny homes come in one or two small levels to utilize as much air space as possible. All the necessities are still there; without all the extra stuff you slowly realize isn’t actually needed.
There are so many cool characteristics these houses hold.
The bed (there isn’t usually more than one room) is normally a trek up a fold-down latter and tucked into a ceiling corner. If the owner has any pets, you can probably bet a few bucks that they have their very own built-in cat or doggie room to save on space that would normally be taken up by a bed or crate.
Some people may question why anyone would ever even ponder this idea, but for the people who do choose the lifestyle, they seem to have nothing but good things to say.
A very large but not surprising amount of people who chose to build a tiny home are mortgage free, and those who do wish to do some financing on their tiny home usually have it paid off within the first two years of building.
Aside from the extremely low cost to initially build a tiny home, there are even more reasons to consider this as a viable option for anyone considering relocating in a new space.
From the money saved on the expenses of owning a larger home, you could do so much more than a life with a bigger home could financially allow you. I would love to see if this trend becomes as popular in Kingston and the surrounding areas as it has in other parts of Canada.
So whether you absolutely love the idea, it’s easy to see why people who build small can still live large!
