WHAT IS TINY LIVING?
Tiny living is a social movement that encourages living simply. A tiny home is, simply put, a fully functioning home in a smaller square meterage.
There are many advantages that put this movement into context of todays modern standards, including: lower household expenses, lower use of energy and a decluttered lifestyle. Going tiny gives you the opportunity to focus on the elements in your life that really matter to you. It creates an alternate option for first time buyers, genuine wanderers at heart and those looking to downsize without breaking the bank.
It's all about maximizing quality of life.
