Everyone seems intrigued by the idea of Tiny Homes, but there isn’t much publicity on why people are thinking about a minimalist lifestyle. This discussion really should be front page news. Tiny homes are not a fad, they’re a reality for several different types of people across an array of society ranges and cultures.
The whole experiment of moving into a tiny home was to see if our family could improve its lifestyle. We wanted more than a pointless pursuit that was endless and self defeating. Getting ahead financially has to come with rewards. There’s no point in an exhaustive financial struggle that leaves no time for enjoying life. “The trouble with the rat race is that even if you win, you’re still a rat.” — Lily Tomlin
Choosing a tiny home lifestyle often coincides with a change in life choices. For some it is a retirement plan. For others it is a more sustainable way to live with Mother Earth. For us it was a lifestyle choice– Carpe Diem! or Joie de Vivre! Whatever your reasons for thinking about moving to a tiny home, you’re not alone.
Every home has things you love about it and our tiny home is no exception. Downsizing doesn’t have to mean giving up comforts and luxuries.
