Tiny House Movement
The tiny house movement refers to the growing phenomenon of people choosing to downsize their living space to a smaller one than the average house. Many tiny houses are mobile but not in the traditional sense of a caravan or recreational vehicle, as the building is shaped like a house and is made to function in a similar manner to a standard size house, only on a very small scale.
Reasons for downsizing to a tiny house includes wanting to save money, focusing on a life lived more outside of the home than in it and being eco-conscious in the way that one lives. Many people are concerned with avoiding sinking a large part of their income into bricks and mortar, while others like the freedom that a mobile tiny house offers, allowing them to travel to different parts of a country or area and even being able to pursue jobs or business opportunities in different parts of the world.
