The tiny house craze is ablaze across this nation. Practically everyone loves the idea of downsizing their homes to a cute little house on trailer wheels that they can take everywhere they go. But what about stationary tiny homes? Yes, those are just as popular. The newest trend with tiny houses are the series of single family homes built in a row and duplicated almost exactly like the next. Here is more on that, and what it means for you.
You Can Buy a Tiny House for Cheap
If you do not get really fancy, you can construct a tiny house for under $100,000. If you use all recycled materials from stores that focus on selling recycled remodeling materials, you can even build a tiny house for half that. The biggest benefit is that you will always have your own home, paid in full and free of a mortgage. It also helps that you can pick the house up and move it to any place in the country, rather than having to sell it through a broker or real estate agent.
If You Are Currently Homeless, You Can Get a House for Free
There are a couple of large-hearted carpenters and sculptors out there that are creating tiny houses for the homeless. They make these little houses, and then they give them away for free. They range from the basic models that will just protect you and keep you and your stuff safe, to models with plumbing and electricity.
Buy A Pre-Made Tiny House Currently Situated in a Tiny House Neighborhood
Tiny house communities are places where series of tiny single-family homes are built within feet of each other. These tiny homes are sold to those who are interested in living in a tiny house community. Essentially, you buy a lot with the tiny house built on it, and that is where you live until you are ready to move again. Many of these communities are built on nice property, often donated at the behest of a wealthier person's will for the "less fortunate." Your purchase price goes back into a trust that helps build more tiny homes in the community.
Nothing Fancy-Just a Place to Call Home
These little homes are nothing really fancy, but they are a place you can call home. When you were already leaning toward the idea of a tiny home, it is good to know that you have all of the above options. It gives you something more to consider than purchasing another large home that is difficult and expensive to maintain.
