5 Big Reasons Why Tiny Homes Are Popular In North Carolina

Neighbourhoods had a choice of several different housing options all mixed together, before the start of the 1940s.  You can buy a first home for starters, upgrade to a family-sized home, and eventually downsize again; all within the same area and neighbourhood, without having to leave the community.

However, after World War II, communities changed.  Industries boomed, included the auto industry, and people started driving to work and play, rather than walking where they needed to go.  Houses became bigger, and the neighbourhoods changed, dividing people types and housing types.

These changes also caused the loss of different building types, and tiny houses fell through the cracks.  People preferred the larger houses and city planning neglected to keep planning, zoning and building regulations, up to date for tiny houses.

5 Reasons For Living And Owning A Tiny House:

  1. Simplify your life: Living less big, having less stress, producing a smaller footprint on the environment, and striving to have less debt, can be an uplifting experience.
  2. Living closer to nature: Because of the smaller spaces in a tiny house, people living in it would be encouraged to go outdoors more, to experience nature.  If you like walking, biking, hiking, etc. a tiny house will be a great option.
  3. Sharing Lifestyle ideas: When living in a tiny home community, you share the same ideals and thoughts, experiencing the same sense of belonging.
  4. Create connections between all people in the community: Regular interaction between people occur more frequently when they live in smaller spaces.  They need to be outside more and do more things that cannot be done inside a tiny home.
  5. Cutting costs: Living smaller will bring lower bills, for instance, lower electricity bills, water bills, cleaning product costs, and much more.  You will also have much lower mortgage payments and less debt.

Tiny houses are becoming more popular and North Caroline’s beautiful mountain country is a suitable and popular area to start a new lifestyle.  Tiny house communities are rebuilding the way that communities function and grow together.
