Advantages of Living in a Tiny House: A Simple Life in Metal Building

Do you dream of a simpler life? Life free of chaos, fewer bills, no mortgage, a life where you can be free to enjoy life more and worry a little less about the daily grind. Maybe a tiny house is for you. There are thousands of people who have joined the tiny house movement. So many in fact that they have TV shows dedicated to tiny house living and tiny house building.

So what is all the hype about? Here are five advantages to living the tiny house dream and how you can achieve a simpler life using a metal building.

Travel

If you enjoy traveling and not being tied to one location, then a tiny house might be the perfect solution for you. Enabling your tiny home to be portable is one of the benefits of owning a tiny home. Not every tiny home needs to be hitch enabled, but if this feature suits your needs, then you should utilize it.

Consider buying a metal building for your tiny house, as they are lighter than other options for a tiny house. You may not want to move your tiny house on a regular basis. However, prefabricated metal buildings are up to 30% lighter than wooden buildings and therefore easier to move to another location if you so choose.

Having a mobile tiny house is a huge benefit.  

Cost

Tiny houses are a fraction of the cost of a traditional home for the design and building materials. When living in a tiny house, you also consume less energy, and expenses are lower as well because the space you are living in is smaller.

When considering what type of materials to use to construct your tiny house, or what kind of building to make into a tiny house, metal should be at the top of your list. Metal buildings may cost a little more upfront, but it’s an investment that will pay off. The cost of upkeep and maintenance that you would spend on other materials used in the construction of tiny houses will surpass what you pay on a metal building.

If you use a metal building for your tiny house, it will require less repair and maintenance over the years, saving you money, which is the point of owning a tiny house.

Decluttered Living

Living in a tiny house allows you a chance to get rid of all of the junk that you may have accumulated over the years in your traditional home and adapt to living with just the things that you need.  Moving all of your belongings into a tiny house gives you a chance to decide what really matters to you.

Environmentally Friendly

Living in a small space like a tiny house allows you to experiment with other factors of environmental-friendliness like solar power, recycling rainwater, composting, and other environmental measures for sustainability.

In addition to the sustainability of the added features of your tiny house, using metal buildings for your tiny house are incredibly environmentally friendly, as they are made from recycled materials. And when your tiny home has come to the end of its life your tiny home can be recycled and turned into something new.

Spend Less on Decorating and Cleaning

We all love putting our personal touches on our homes, but owning a smaller space like a tiny home gives us a smaller canvas to work therefore you will spend less money on decorations. You will also have less room for storage and will be a little more protective over what you purchase and what goes into that storage space.

Having fewer things in your tiny home means fewer things to clean. Going from a large traditional home to a tiny home will free up a lot of your time to do the things that you want to do. You will spend less time cleaning and more time doing what you love.
