The small/tiny house movement is the name given for the growing trend of living in small/tiny homes, along with a move towards living more simply. Living simply for many means reducing the amount of stuff/possessions someone owns. Living in a tiny house, means having less space and in turn having to downsize and keep only the possessions that a person/family needs. Tiny houses are more popular than ever before with a wide variety of styles, designs, plans and sizes available to choose from. All over the world you will find tiny home designs that are unique and original based on the owners personal style and preferences, and the builder who built the tiny home. A tiny house is a return to living in smaller sized houses, which usually means living in a house that is less than 1,000 square feet. Tiny houses on wheels is also a growing trend, and often compared to RV living.

Downsizing into a tiny house can be a way to save money on heating, taxes, maintenance, building costs, and repair costs.
