A house doesn't need to be huge to be functional!
“Inhabiting such a small space will force me to live in a simpler, more organized and efficient way.” He said. And what better a way is there than building yourself a small home? Sure, having a tiny house may not be for everyone, but you can't deny that the tiny house movement is growing rapidly.
More and more people are recognizing the benefits of the tiny home, and that more square footage doesn't equate to a life filled with more joy. And really, just because you can afford to buy a huge house doesn't mean that you should. Instead of buying a dream home, free up that money and live a dream life.
Alek built his home on top of a trailer when he still lived in Iowa. When he finished his home, he towed it to California where he and his family now live. Now instead of paying off debt, they can spend their money on leisure and travel. And look at that. It's super cute. Seems right out of Pinterest.
One positive thing about having a small home? Fewer distractions. More work gets done. Lots of natural light make the house seem bigger. The house is designed to feel spacious, even with its small size. Every square foot is functional. The bathroom is definitely tiny, but functional. The commode, sink and shower take up almost no space.
