A tiny home design is a great way to save some money and live a life with less stuff. This houseboat is just one of the small house living you might consider if you think tiny house living is for you, or you are in need of a change. But do you think you have what it takes to go tiny? If you're nodding your head yes, you might want to think about it a little more. You might want to go to a tiny house vacation or get some advice from people who have been living for at least three years, or longer. Although small house living has loads of benefits and sounds like a breeze, it's not necessarily for everyone. The best way to make your tiny house dream come true is to do a bit of research.



With any living situation, there are going to be pros and cons, and the same goes for small house living. Of course, the one con is that you will have less space, but a benefit is that a small home design typically costs less, so this frees up your money every month to spend on the things that you want. It’s not just a lower mortgage payment that saves you money; you'll save on your electric bill too. That adds up to major savings over a few years that you will spend in your home. Another benefit to small house living is that there is a lot less cleaning. Depending on how big your current home is, you might reduce your cleaning by half or more, and that is perhaps the best benefit of all. With less cleaning to do, you'll have more time to do the things you enjoy.
