Tiny Homes

Some people dream about living in a big house with a pool. Other people choose to live in a tiny home that is between 9-37 square meters. These people choose smaller homes over bigger homes so they can live a simple life. Some tiny homes even have wheels. So if you have a tiny home, you can travel around the world with your home. You can also visit friends and family and stay for a number of days. If you live in a tiny house, you can spend more time with your family because the space is so tiny. There are no rooms you can escape to. It’s easy to clean it yourself, so you don’t have to pay money to a cleaner. You can even throw things away if you don’t need them, and only keep the important things. 

Alexis Stephens is a tiny home owner. She says “it’s just…what you really love or need and how you use your space”. Alexis loves small, outdoor living. She travels around the country to show people what tiny houses look and feel like. Crystal Harvey is also a tiny home owner. She says she does not need a lot of things. “I don’t hold onto things…so it was really easy for me to throw everything away, and I didn’t have a lot to begin with,” she said on the phone from her tiny house in Tennessee. The only problem of having a tiny home is finding a place to park.
