Going green is not a small change. Everything that we do in an effort to have a greener lifestyle is an effort that affects the world around us. Every effort is a change. Think about the three green living changes that you hear about the most. Reducing your use of electricity, water and waste are always at the top of the list right? Normally, these three reductions occur in three different areas of your lifestyle. What if you could make all three changes with one overall change and not only give yourself a greener lifestyle but also reduce your carbon footprint? Allow GoGreen to introduce you to the “Tiny Home Movement.”
What is the “Tiny Home Movement”
The tiny home movement is based on the concept of small living. Tiny homes, like the ones featured on Tumbleweed Homes, are designed for up to two people and have a living area of less than 800 square feet. They are portable, can be towed like a regular camper and best of all they help you live a greener lifestyle.
How do Tiny Homes Help with Green Living?
Tiny homes use less water, less energy and less resources overall. In fact, a tiny home can run off one solar panel. Imagine running your home off a single solar panel and reducing your electric bill by over 80%. If you are someone who has been debating the option of off-grid living or a minimalist lifestyle then tiny homes may be an option for you.
Is a Tiny Home Right for Me?
Tiny homes are not for everyone. If you have large pets, a large family or if you have a problem with small spaces then a tiny home is probably not an alternative for you. If you are living alone or it is just the two of you then it may be a suitable and budget friendly option to consider. Imagine living in an AirStream full-time or even for a long weekend. Now imagine that you are not on vacation and this is your new lifestyle. If you did not cringe or if you yelled out “cool” then a tiny home may be the perfect thing for you.
How are Tiny Homes Designed?
Tiny homes have a small living area, basic kitchen, shower, toilet, built-in table and bookcase and a loft for sleeping. There are several models to choose from and plans start as low as $800. You have the option of building the tiny home yourself for around $16,000 and up or you can have the tiny home built for you and delivered. It should be noted that there are no washer or dryer outlets in a tiny home. Dishwashers and other appliances are also not standard options.
