You might have heard of the Tiny House Movement, where many people have downscaled to compact homes facilitating a stripped-down way of living.

As a provider of tiny homes for sale in NZ, we have a lot of positive to say about these modest residences. However, we also acknowledge that they aren’t for everyone. This is why we have decided to prepare in-depth answers to the following important questions about tiny homes.

What is it Like to Live in a Tiny Home? 

This kind of house has been designed to provide little more than living essentials. When you have a smaller amount of residential space, you can more easily keep it tidy and organised. You can also live closer to nature — so much so that it starts to feel like an extension of your home.

What Kinds of People Would Enjoy ‘Tiny Living’?

If you are the outdoor type and love the idea of regularly exercising in the open air, a tiny home could enable you to embrace this lifestyle quite like never before.

The ‘tiny home’ concept could also pique your interest if you find modern urban life stressful and are consequently eager to practice minimalism in a bid to regain your bearings.

Conversely, if you prefer to spend much of your time indoors and would be frustrated by having to spend much of your time in the same room as someone else, tiny living could easily grate. It might also be a bad idea if you are clumsy and so could be prone to banging into bits and pieces of a narrow space.

What Size is a ‘Tiny’ Home?

There is no hard and fast rule here, but on average, a tiny home with just one bedroom is about 20 square metres. Meanwhile, the average size is more like 25 square metres if a second bedroom is included. Adding a third bedroom can see the home’s size exceed 30 square metres.

If you do have a tiny home built for yourself, you should make sure it is carefully designed to incorporate all of the elements you know would be crucial for your needs. Of course, you should also factor in needs of anyone else who will be inhabiting the building with you.
