“The unpredictable economy, recent natural disasters and the fickle housing market are driving many working class Americans to live more frugally. Although downsizing, living simply and being environmentally-conscious are not new ideas to any generation, Millennials graduating with unprecedented amounts of student debt are looking to own, rather than rent, a home. Deciding to turn their backs on the McMansions and SUVS of their forebears, more and more Millennials are buying into the tiny house movement.
The tiny house movement (also known as small or micro house movement) is about living with the basics: a bed, bathroom and a kitchen. Small houses are classified under 1,000 square feet and tiny houses between 100 and 400 square feet. These prudent places offer those lacking a $50,000 down payment on a standard home to own something just as practical with a significantly smaller price tag.”
