The following Top 10 reasons to live in a Tiny home was written by Robyn Griggs Lawrence in an article published at Mother Earth News.
1. Less initial cost. Tiny houses have traditional features such as kitchen, plumbing, roof and flooring that can make the price per square foot more expensive, but because overall size is so much smaller, the overall price is only a fraction of traditional homes.
2. Less energy consumption. Tiny houses require much less energy to heat and cool simply because they have much less interior air space. Refrigerators and hot water heaters, two big energy consumers, are typically smaller in a tiny house.
3. Less water consumption and trash. If you have a small shower and small hot water heater, chances are your showers will be a lot shorter. If you have a small trash can, chances are you will generate less trash.
4. Less cost for repairs. The cost to replace a 2,000-square-foot roof will be a lot more than the cost of a 300-square-foot roof.
5. Less land to purchase and maintain. If you elect to buy a very small plot of land for your tiny house, you’ll spend less time cutting grass. If you buy a regular size lot, you’ll have more room your garden.
6. Less food. A small pantry means you’ll have a small amount of food in your house.
7. Less taxes. The savings can go toward investments, retirement, college for your children, vacations, or donations to tinyhouselistings.com.
8. Less insurance. Tiny houses cost much less to insure because they are less valuable. Many insurance companies consider tiny houses on wheels to be an RV.
9. Less interest paid. It’s no secret that over the course of a 30-year loan, you will pay more for interest than you will the house itself. Most tiny house owners elect to pay cash for their tiny house, or to pay it off quickly.
10. More disposable income. By owning and living in a tiny house, you are slashing your living expenses at every level.
11. More freedom. (OK, 11 reasons.) By living in a tiny house, you free up money by cutting expenses in a big way. You use fewer natural resources. You spend less time cleaning and maintaining your home. You trade square feet for freedom.
