A tiny house offers you the chance to live with no mortgage, no utility bills, a vanishingly small carbon footprint, and a simpler life more connected to nature. If you’re thinking of having your very own tiny house built, then here are some steps to get started to turn your dream into a reality.
Write down your ideas
Starting off simply, it can be useful to take all of your exciting ideas out of your head and write them down on paper. Ideas such as your dream tiny home designs, interior features, off-grid needs etc. This will help you to make better sense of your vision, and move forward with the planning process.
Getaway and rent a Tiny House
If you’re unsure of the tiny house lifestyle or stuck on which design and floor plan may suit your needs, then renting a tiny house for the weekend may be a great option. By spending time directly inside a tiny house, new ideas may spark for your dream house. You will gain first-hand experience with the space and develop a better understanding of which ideas are realistic and which may need a re-think before the building begins

Decide on your essentials
Tiny house living is more than just a housing choice, it’s a lifestyle change that may require some sacrifices. It is important that you start deciding which items, belongings and appliances are absolutely essential for your daily life, and then you can minimise the ones that aren’t. From there, you can plan the rest of your space around those must-haves. The trade-off of minimising and simplifying is well worth it for the unique benefits tiny house living offers you.
