Across the globe, in the wake of environmental awareness and the economic repercussions of the 2008 Wall Street crash, the “tiny house” movement is growing in vigor.
Young people are challenging the accepted dream of a couple in their parents’ and grandparents’ generations – a large house with a white picket fence. Instead, they’re opting for small properties that don’t require a big mortgage, big bills, and tons of furnishings. Statistics show that 68% of tiny home owners don’t have a mortgage. This is the new face of economic freedom and minimal environmental impact.
The cost of a tiny home can range anywhere between $8,000 to $30,000, depending on size and fittings, and how luxurious and large you intend to make them. Check out Chris Heininge’s magazine-worthy 280 square foot tiny home in Oregon.
