Interest in small houses has massively increased over the past few years. For some the attraction is purely based on price as these cute little structures are considerably cheaper than the average property. For others it’s the originality, inventiveness and sustainability these tiny homes can offer that is the real attraction.
These tiny homes can be portable or fixed, and, depending on the location, each has its own set of regulatory pros and cons.
The US has seen a tiny house phenomenon with more and more Americans building tiny houses because of financial restrictions or an urge to create smaller environmental footprints.
Although we aren’t seeing a phenomenon in the UK, the rise of small living is definitely being noticed with more UK based companies like Custom Built in Surrey offering off the shelf and bespoke tiny house packages.
As first impressions go these houses definitely pack a punch considering their size, but could you see yourself living in a small space?
