Tiny Houses Might Make You Reevaluate Your Life Choices
Posted by GreaterGoodness
Bigger is better. Or is it?
In today’s world of increasing consumerism, many are driven to purchase the biggest house they can afford. But a big house is not only expensive, it’s inefficient. As homes grow in size, so does the demand for land, resources and “stuff.”
An emerging counter-culture is choosing to turn their backs on the typical consumerist lifestyle and embrace a “less is more” mindset, starting with their homes. These tine homes are exactly what they sound like: dwellings that contain all of life’s essentials, just in a smaller package. Some can be as small as 90 square feet!
One group that stands to benefit from the growth of the tiny house movement is the homeless. Cities like Portland, OR and independent movements like Occupy Madison have rolled out programs to transition tent cities into tiny homes, granting those in need more stable and attractive housing in tight urban environments.
See how people around the world are surviving in 90 square feet or less!
