When my kids grow up and find their own way I don’t won’t to have blues and depression of empty nest. So when they move on I’d rather live in a beautifully appointed smaller home than kick around in a McMansion.
Right now we live in a large 4 br 2 bath ranch style home. Which right now fits us perfectly ! But will we need all this space when it’s just the two of us ?
so those thoughts bring me to what is the “tiny house movement”?
The tiny house movement, as I have come to understand it, is really just about normal people downsizing the space they live in. About not wanting as much. Not wanting the overhead of a large home. And the list goes on…
Let’s ask ourself what do we really need to be comfortable in our living environment ??
When I ask myself this question the answer is and has always been more room, more space, more storage etc…
Could I really survive in a tiny home ? I honestly think so when it’s just the two of us. Right now it’s completely out of the question with my family and how we live now.
So while reading and learning about these tiny homes that intrigued me I made a pros and cons list see below:
Studies show that it cost an average $700 a YEAR to keep the tiny home up that includes every single thing ! Do you realize that’s $58 a month ! Right now our basic bill payout monthly is roughly $1200 ! Those #’s speak for themselves.
78% of Americans live pay check to pay check not sure I want to be in that % when I am 55.
Debt free, less stress, stronger connections.
You could not make and display everything you see on pintrest.
Would need a quest house on the property.
Less places to have “me” time.
But when really thinking seriously about this I feel like it would actually lead me to a fuller life, connecting more with friends, family and nature. While freeing me from a suffocating house payment and the urge to keep up with the Joneses…
Please see below the pictures of my favorite tiny homes that have more charm than anything I have ever laid eyes on to date.
Please give me thoughts and feedback ! What do you think could you do it ??
