Recently I've come across sites promoting smaller living spaces. It seems to be a popular trend these days and then my sister in law suggested I write a blog about it to share the information with those who may not be informed about small living spaces.
Small living spaces are a trend with those committed to sustainable living and focusing on off the grid living as well. Empty nester's are interested in downsizing and debt free living. For those of us growing up in the 80's and 90's and even into early 2000, we were use to everything being big. Big hair, big cars and big houses. For many reasons people began to downsize and there are a lot of benefits to a more simplistic lifestyle.
Small living spaces have a positive effect ecologically. The estimated size to a small living space is approximately 500 square feet. With less heating and cooling that small spaces require many people choose solar energy. Small living space cost less to build and use less building materials which is another bonus to our ecology.
With the high cost of living and for those who are tired of paying too much for rent. These tiny homes would solve those problems. The cost to build a small home can be built for less than what a new car cost. Investing in a small home can create a debt free lifestyle for those trying to make ends meet.
As I mentioned before empty nester's are looking to downsize and simplify their lives. Others are purchasing movable small living spaces. These tiny houses on wheels are replacing motor homes and travel trailers. The homes are typically 8' x 20' and have a living space of 120 feet for easy towing and to exempt it from building permits. Some people are choosing small living spaces as a second home for vacations.
As I have browsed information pertaining to small living spaces I would have to say that the multi-purpose features and furniture are a highlight to me. The space saving concept and vertical optimization appeal to my practical mind. If you have the chance, look into small living spaces. If you choose to pursue building a small living space, give CH Construction a call to help you fulfill your tiny living lifestyle.
