In the housing world, this downsizing of your living space and starting to live simply in small homes is what has come to be referred to as the “Tiny House Movement”.The world is rapidly changing, as environmental and economic forces continuously compel you to re-evaluate your living lifestyle on the earth. In the United States, most people have lost their dwellings due to the current economic troubles- this has seen the “Tiny House Movement” spread in a sweeping phenomenon.According to a census in 2010, 2,392 square feet was the average size for homes in the U.S. This figure is a reduced square footage dating back in 2007 when 2,521 square feet was the average size. On the same chart, in 1973, 1660 square feet was the average size. These changes clearly prove that the calculation or averaging of these sizes is not constant, but rather subject to opinion.The truth is, you can significantly reduce the risk of financial ruin in case you’re sacked by reducing your rental expenditure. Therefore, it’s incredibly brilliant to join the movement and shift to ‘living small’ in a tiny or small house. Tiny houses have many advantages (as discussed later on in the book). However, smaller homes save you money and time. More importantly, they offer the peace of mind since the thought of you doing what’s good for your environmental, satisfies you.Living Big by Living SmallYes, as ironic as it sounds, it’s the absolute truth.
