I quite enjoy my apartment. I have owned houses and I get the whole “why pay someone else’s mortgage when you can get a house and own your own place” argument.
But you don’t own it, the bank does. And from experience I know that a house needs constant maintenance.
Yes it is an investment(something that makes you money) but the only way this happens is if you have a rental unit or when you sell. And how much have you really paid when you factor in interest?
So at this point in my life I rather enjoy apartment living.
That being said I LOVE some of the tiny homes I see on the internet.
I would love to have my own space where I can play music loudly or watch a movie with the volume turned up. Hard to do that in an apartment. Well, not hard to do. Just inconsiderate.
Combine a tiny house with off grid living and I feel that I would have winning combination. And some of these are tiny homes on wheels! You can transport them around if you really wanted to.
I love the idea of a prefab tiny house that gets delivered, dropped off, set up and that’s it.
I know I am dreaming a bit here. But it is my dream.
My tiny home dream.
If anyone has any insight or experience with how to make this dream become a reality please comment. Thanks.
