Why choose to live in a tiny home when you have always been told bigger is better? Perhaps good things really do come in small packages.
The trend towards tiny houses has become a social movement. Many people are downsizing the space they live in and choosing minimalism and living with less. In parts of Australia the cost of living has significantly increased and in some areas a lack of affordable housing is at an all-time high. Other factors contributing to the tiny life philosophy are environmental concerns and lifestyle. As Leonardo da Vinci once said, "Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication".
