Tiny House Floor Plans
If you are just finding this blog you should know that I live in a pretty amazing minimalist apartment. It is perfect for me. VERY reasonable rent. A bit of a backyard space where I can garden. And it is super close to my new work place, so I can walk to work in about 20 minutes.
IF there is a downside it is that it is on a busy street.
And I am LOVING some of the tiny home floor plans and designs that I have been seeing on various websites.
Just having your own wonderful space that is eco friendly is very appealing. Many of the these tiny house designs are also “off the grid homes”. They are set up for solar power, wind power and rain water collection.
Most tiny house floor plans incorporate an open concept, which I prefer.
The interesting thing about these prefab tiny houses is that they can be a bit pricey. I have seen prices of over 50000.00 dollars. Plus land and set up.
So here is a question. Could a person purchase a used mobile home, gut it and come up with your own tiny house floor plan? Yes you would still need land and specialized set up if you want it to be an off the grid tiny house.
But I can’t help but think that it would be cheaper than purchasing a prefab tiny house. And it would have a flat roof that could be retrofitted to have a living greenroof.
Yes, my minimalist lifestyle is awesome right now. But knowing that even a small one bedroom apartment has a large carbon footprint is a bit disconcerting. Tiny house floor plans and designs that are eco friendly seem to make so much more sense.
How big is your curent place and could you live in less space?
