Does home size matter? It does when it comes to the growing real-estate trend of "micro homes."
These micro houses prove that there is a certain beauty in finding a low-impact solution for you and your family. Bigger isn't always better. Fans of the tiny home movement swear by it: when we simplify our lives and live "smaller" big savings - and improvements to the overall quality of your life - are possible.
In a consumption-based society where "more is more," there's a surprising movement gathering steam. An increasing number of Americans are downsizing their homes and moving into "tiny houses," which range from 65 to 400 square feet.
The benefits of living in a tiny house are almost too many to count. Monthly bills start to look like chump change. The homes are cozy and easy to manage, not to mention better for the environment. And the size limitation forces tenants to unclutter their life — getting rid of unwanted stuff and embracing a sense of minimalism and purpose.
