Setting Expectations in Tiny House Living

6 February 2023

You’ve probably heard about this fascinating new way of life where you may live out the rest of your days mortgage-free by purchasing a tiny house for yourself, building a camp on someone else’s property, or purchasing a piece of the quintessentially Australian countryside. What’s the catch, though?

The “catch” could be many things, some of which may be too much for some people to manage while others may not even be aware of them as drawbacks to life. So, before you contact a reliable builder of tiny homes and transportable buildings, we’ve put up some things on what to expect when living in a tiny home to help you decide if this is the kind of lifestyle that would suit you and one that you could actually love.

Are Tiny Homes Suitable for Everyone?

Even if we’d want to claim that tiny house living is appropriate for everyone, that’s not the case. Yes, people from many walks of life may fit into the tiny lifestyle, and if you enjoy the outdoors, frequently travel, engage in regular exercise, appreciate green spaces, or practise simplicity, you should fit this lifestyle pretty well. This type of living, however, might not be for you if you have an “indoor” lifestyle and become irritated when people spend a lot of time in the same room as you.

Moving from a large house to a tiny one will undoubtedly feel intimidating regardless of who you are and what your past may be. However, you will quickly realise that the vast outdoors is your daily playground and that an appreciation for the little things in life will come naturally.

Can Life be Good in a Tiny Home?

A tiny home does not imply a tiny way of life. Living in a space that has been thoughtfully designed actually leads to less clutter, better organisation, greener living, and closer family interactions. As you downsize to a functional living space that costs a fraction of the price of a brick house, you’ll be able to get rid of all the junk you’ve been hoarding for years. The answer to the question “Can life be good?” is a resounding yes for those who embrace it.

Setting new habits and leading a new lifestyle to go with the new property is equally crucial. In contrast to hoarding things and spending your days on the couch, this implies living simply and appreciating the little things in life. If you can’t appreciate the outdoors, have privacy concerns, or simply hoard too many things, living tiny is very uncomfortable unless you embrace this new lifestyle for a change.

Can I Choose the Interior Design & Layout?

If money is not an issue, you can make a living in a tiny house more comfortable because it can be built with you and your family in mind by customising it to match every aspect of your lifestyle. In this case, we advise contacting our experienced tiny home builders to review alterations, including the timeframe and extra costs. In other circumstances where a more limited budget is required, your best option would be to select from our list of pre-designed tiny house floor plans available on our website because they are typically less expensive, have a fixed price, and already have the plans and materials ready to go rather than a new design that requires more time and resources to prepare and construct.

Now that you already know what to expect in tiny house living, you probably would want to know more and even decide to give it a try and embark on a new chapter of your life by changing your lifestyle and living small. If that’s the case, our team at Teeny Tiny Homes will be more than happy to help you start this new journey of your life.
