Who knew, tiny houses are a thing. Some of these places are just really cool caravans, but still have to admire the people who buck the trend and make the minimalist idea a thing. Talk about not keeping up the Joneses. Accept if the Joneses also life in a tiny house. That is smaller than your own tiny house..
Watching the documentary called "Tiny, a story about living small" did make me think about what makes a house a home. It is clearly about the bigger the better, even though all of us would like the chance to be proven wrong. If its not the size is it about the content then? It was interesting how people who life in tiny houses loved to show how everything in the place has some kind of secondary use. There is a place for everything and everything has a place. Tables fold down to create extra space, and there are small storage areas everywhere a unutilised corner could be spared.
A few other things are clear as well about a tiny house. If you are a horder of anything, tiny house will not be your thing that is for certain. If you aren't a neat freak, then tiny house is also not for you. If you are a extrovert married to a introvert, tiny house will lead to divorce. Not sure there will be a long messy battle over who get's to keep the house though.
If you are a extrovert married to a introvert, tiny house will lead to divorce.
But if there is one thing to be learned from the tiny house owners, it is that owning a tiny house opens up so many other doors. With the decrease in home living costs, the owners of these homes are making up for the lack of their castle's by being able to travel and explore more often that normal home owners.
I think one of the tiny house owners summed it up best about what makes a house a home. Home isn't one thing, it's a collection of things that are hard to define.
