As rents rise, and home prices rise as well, people are starting to question their need of “space”. An option that some are turning to now, is what is known as a “Tiny Home”. A Tiny Home is a house that measures in at 400 square feet or less. These homes are built to maximize the small amount of space they take up using innovative storage solutions, lofts, and other creative tweaks tailored to the occupant’s needs and preferences.
For people who balk at paying $1000 or more for an apartment that they spend little time in or hundreds of thousands of dollars for a home that is 2 to 3 times the space they actually need – a Tiny Home may be the perfect option, that is if you can find a place to put it.
There are RV parks and mobile home parks, but if neither of these options appeal to you, try looking for a piece of land you can either rent or buy, or even a wanted ad on craigslist might turn up a home owner willing to let you park on their property. Better yet, if you can swing it – buy a house you can park yours on, and rent out the main one… then you are free to live where you fit – which in a Tiny House is just about anywhere.
