Why do we love small and tiny houses?
It’s not unheard of for Americans to spend 30% – 50% of their income simply to put a roof over their heads. Put in another way, it is 15 years of straight working during your life time just to pay for the house. Because we do so, approximately 76% of Americans are living paycheck to paycheck.
It’s about community and really enjoying life. Without the pressures of a huge mortgage, and having to fill your house with “stuff”, your perspectives really change.
Tiny Home Owner
I believe people should be allowed to live as simply as they choose. Since the recent housing bust, bank bailouts, and subsequent economic downturn, there has been increasing demand for well-designed, affordable homes, and more sensible laws.
