WHY GO TINY?
Going tiny is not just about building a small house, it is changing your mindset about the way you want to live your life completely. It is about choosing to not be part of the tireless rush of life that is always tempting you to want more things and pushing you further and further into debt until you crack under the pressure.
“They offer a path to a smaller environmental footprint, greater financial freedom, and ultimately self-sufficient life. The tiny home movement enables you to live a life on your own terms” – The Tiny Life
Living Tiny is simple, debt-free and exciting!
WHAT ARE THE PROS OF LIVING TINY?
The environment will love you for going tiny as the energy consumption of a tiny house is so much less than that of an average-sized home. A lot of tiny house residents also make use of solar panels, making energy consumption even less.
IT MAKES SENSE FINANCIALLY
Average homes in South Africa are way overpriced and you spend years paying off the debt of your home loan, interest, insurance, taxes, repairs, and improvements.
Buying a 2-3 bedroom home in a nice neighbourhood works out on average between R1 600 000 – R2 600 000, where building a tiny house from start to finish works out between R200 000 – R600 000 depending on the size and the design you want, saving you more than half the amount you would pay for a normal home.
So the actual question is, why not?
YOU ARE FREE!
Want to travel the world or pack up your things and move? When you own a Tiny House you have the freedom to go wherever, whenever you want without having to worry about selling your home/renting it out or having to find a house sitter, because guess what – your home is traveling with you!
CLEANING IN 15 MINUTES
Yes, you read that right! Cleaning a tiny house from top to bottom on average takes up to 15 minutes. This will save you time, money (as you won’t need to buy a lot of cleaning products or hire a house help) and energy – resulting in more time spent with your loved ones or doing the things you love.
LIVING CLUTTER FREE
This is the perfect chance to get rid of all that extra clutter in your life, don’t worry you’ll feel great after throwing out the things you don’t use! You’ll find a deeper appreciation for the things you have and won’t be tempted to spend your money on unnecessary gimmicks and clutter.
After all this exhilaration you are probably ready to see a tiny house in action, right?
