The rise in popularity of tiny homes indicates a new trend may be emerging in the housing market.
coupled with the rising cost of living as well as concerns for the environment is prompting a growing number of people to seek alternative means of accommodation.
A large part of this countercultural movement is born out of a desire to live in a more socially conscious and sustainable way that promotes ideals such as living more simply and with less.
As smaller spaces require less energy to heat or cool, tiny houses naturally consume less gas or electricity and many are installed with energy-saving systems which allow them to operate off-grid.
Rather than fossil fuels, many tiny homes use renewable energy sources such as solar, wind or micro hydro for their energy needs.
In many cases, a tiny home is built on wheels and is, therefore, portable and can be easily relocated elsewhere.
If life requires you to move to another location, you do not have to spend time and effort putting your home on the market looking for buyers or searching for a new property in another neighbourhood.
A tiny home will allow you to move your entire house allowing for a more transient lifestyle and change of scenery whenever you feel like it.
