Although the tiny house movement has been around for a good while, it has really gained increasing awareness as of recently due to shows such as Tiny House Nation and the growing desire of many people to downsize and live more streamlined lives. From a cost perspective, downsizing has real pluses in terms of decreased utility and housing-related costs.
Tiny house living requires a serious commitment to living with less material things and being willing and flexible in working with building codes and other challenges you may encounter.
