Have you ever thought about what it would be like to live in a tiny house?
Perhaps you wondered whether the advantages would outweigh the disadvantages?
So many books on the subject cover small space living with a candy coating. They gloss over the negative and emphasize the positive to a comical degree. As a result, it is hard for the average person to answer the question:
ÒIs small space living for me?Ó
I faced that situation personally. While everything I read seemed to indicate that my family would be fine in a smaller home, my research seemed too good to be true. If living in a small house is all sunshine and roses, why didnÕt everybody do it?
Fortunately I had lived in small spaces in the past, so I decided to take the leap.
While life in a small home isnÕt perfect, it proved to be exactly what we needed. Our tiny space allowed us to simplify our lives, making room for me to pursue my dream of being a writer and the ability to grant my daughterÕs wish for me to be a stay at home single mother.
However, there is still a lot of misinformation available about what it takes to live small. Everything from what constitutes a tiny house to how much you can cram inside has been hotly debated. As a result IÕve decided to share my personal experiences with small space living to help others learn the real story.
