You’ve passed all the tiny home tests – including downsizing from 2,500 square feet to 250 square feet. As you cleaned out the clutter and cozied up to the idea of a simpler life, you had no idea that your big decision to go small would continue to present so many perks. There are many reasons why people are joining the tiny house movement, but some the best benefits of going tiny have yet to come.
- Have house will travel. The world is your oyster – especially when you’re mobile. Whether you’re looking for beach-front property on the California coast or a quiet place in the Rocky Mountains, if you have a trailer and a hitch, you can hook up your tiny house and go anywhere. Just make sure you’re doing it legally with this advice from Realtor.com on How to Live in a Tiny House Without Breaking the Law.
- Cozy quarters = less yard work. The words “reduced maintenance” are music to most tiny house owners’ ears. When you own a tiny home, the world is your front lawn – but, you’re not expected to mow it. Just think, smaller water bills and fewer landscaping projects.

- The people make the place. You’ve found your tiny patch of utopia where you’ll put down your tiny home. Now, it’s up to you to and your like-minded, tiny home neighbors to create a sense of community. From communal dinner tables to tiny house projects – you have a neighborhood of doers always willing to lend a helping hand. Volunteer to organize a monthly community work day to chip in on projects located around the common areas. Find other ideas on how to create community from Shareable’s How to Create a Tiny House Village.
- Never dread future moves. You won’t have to search and collect moving boxes ever again! New job in a new city? Want to get away from that annoying neighbor? No problem. Unless you bought a plot of land to park your tiny home on, you’re free to move – stress free. Of course, you’ll still have some expenses for a move. Get an idea of what kinds of costs you’re looking at with The Pros & Cons of Tiny House Travel.
