So why do people consider building a tiny house or living in one? There are several reasons for considering a tiny house, for example, you may want a small house to downsize from your larger sized house, or a tiny house might be the way to get the vacation home you've been dreaming. Some people also consider them for their parents or in-laws to live in on their property or to use as a guest house. Whatever your reasons for thinking about tiny house building, there are several options to choose from to include tiny houses on wheels, on foundations, prefab homes, park models, tiny house kits, and more. One of the easiest and most convenient options to a small house design is tiny house on wheels. Tiny houses on wheels are a home design that comes in a wide variety of styles, sizes and designs. A tiny house on wheels can be pulled up to your piece of land, set up and ready to live in almost immediately. There are also tiny houses on wheels that are set up with solar so that you can take them to off-grid locations. Prefab and modular small house designs are another small house option that will get you the home design that you need, in a short amount of time. This would include mobile homes and park model homes. There is also the new idea of using old shipping containers as a structure for your small home too.
The good thing about prefab and modular small house design is that they are built indoors, so you don't have to worry about any unpredictable weather delays. They also create less building waste, so they are more environmentally friendly in that way too. Tiny house kits are a popular option for people and easier than building a small house from scratch. You don't need a lot of building skills to put together a tiny house building kit, and many can be done with two or three people. Those who are building a kit have fewer obstacles to go through than a traditional way of building from the ground up. Tiny house building kits also offer a much more hands-on approach to tiny house building, and in general, they can also be more easily customized. You can get the tiny house building that best suits your budget, lifestyle and needs, as you are often a part of the design process. With some tiny house building kits, you can choose from optional add-ons such as built-in storage, patios, extra rooms, bathrooms, and more. Several tiny house building kits come with the wood and the parts pre-designed and pre-cut, which minimizes any problems and takes less time to assemble. In most cases, however, you will need to take care of the plumbing and electricity, along with the heating and cooling, which should be installed by a professional.
This particular tiny home on wheels is done in a log cabin style to show that it's possible to create that log home look even on a tiny house. The logs are a siding option that you can choose for your own tiny house instead of the regular tongue and groove siding. These days, small house living is more popular than ever, and with so many tiny house building options available there is something to suit most any lifestyle, budget and need. If tiny house building seems like a good idea, you will be surprised at the wide variety of options you will find. Small house designs keep getting better all the time, and you will quickly see that giving up some square footage in your home design, doesn't mean that you have to do away with style, function and design.
