Have you heard about the Tiny House Movement?

Have you heard about the Tiny House Movement?

Whether you refer to it as the Tiny House Movement, Tiny Living, etc it all refers to those who have made a choice to drastically downsize their homes.

The average home in Edmonton is around 1900 square feet while a Tiny Home is significantly less at only 100 to 400 square feet. A 100 square foot home may seem impossible to live in, but there are people everywhere proving that it is possible. More importantly, people are learning the benefits of simplifying their lives.

Many of us live in debt because we need more and more and more. The bigger the house, the more stuff you need to fill it with and the more likely it will be impossible to maintain without hiring help. The Tiny House Movement is all about education – you don’t need to work for 15 years to be able to put a roof over your head.

An infographic that the folks at The Tiny Life created helps to explain a little bit more about tiny living:

We at River City Financial love the idea that the home is once again a center for families to become close and simplify their lives rather than using it as storage for your big screen TV’s.

    Hi Yvonne,
    Do you know of any builders in the Edmonton area who are currently using tiny house-building techniques? Or building smaller more-efficient homes?

    Hi there! My hubby and I are interested in the tiny house movement. Is there anyone knowledgable about this who is living tiny in the Edmonton area? A community perhaps?
