As Tiny House Livers and Builders, we often get asked questions along the lines of “where do I even start with this Tiny House thing?”, “is it right for me?”, or “I’m not a builder and never done this before, can I still go Tiny?”
Before you start, you need to be prepared and ask two very important questions.
#1: Do I really love a small space?
Further to that, can you actually LIVE in that small of a space?
We’re talking anywhere from 100--‐400 square feet on average. Start with an experiment.
You could start by de--‐cluttering, minimizing, and see how that feels.
Next, pick a small room in your house and see if you can fit what you want to fit.
See how you feel.
#2: Ask yourself “why do I want to go tiny?”
This will mark the difference between a romantic idea of living tiny or truly embracing the lifestyle.
See if you can dig deep on solid reasons like: living a simple life, being environmentally friendly, having the freedom to travel, becoming free from debt, or any other personal reasons that are meaningful to you.
Beyond knowing the answer to this question for yourself, it’ll help you when family or friends are questioning why you want to go tiny.
