The trend toward tiny housing has become a social movement. People are choosing to downsize for simplicity and more freedom. Keeping reading to learn more about tiny houses and how our portable sinks are the perfect solution for maximizing your small space.
The Tiny House Movement
The tiny house movement is about more than just simply living in a small space. We’ve grown up hearing the phrase “Bigger is Better,” but that’s not always the case. The most popular reasons people choose to downsize to a tiny home include environmental concerns, financial concerns, and the desire for more time and freedom. While tiny houses aren’t for everyone, the costs are much lower than a full-size home.
About Tiny Houses
The typical American home is around 2,600 sq. ft. The typical tiny home is between 100 and 400 sq. ft. Tiny homes come in a variety of shapes, sizes and forms, but they all enable simpler living in a smaller, more efficient space. Some tiny houses are designed and built by the owner, while others are purchased, made from a tiny house kit or adapted from trailers.
