Tiny Houses for Retirement

Here’s another advantage to tiny house living: due to the low cost of tiny houses you can pay off the home fairly quickly and be mortgage free in your retirement years. I found two interesting videos on this topic so I’ve combined them into one blog post.

“Single Mother Builds Tiny House to Create Retirement Plan:
Michelle ” MJ” Boyle is a mother of two and as her kids were coming of age she realized she had no plan for retirement. Michelle built a tiny house so that she can have an affordable place to live.”


Luxury Tiny House – No Mortgage Retirement:
Super beautiful interior design. “Ray, a 57-year-old engineer, spent two years building a Tiny House with innovative slide-outs so that he can retire without a mortgage and age comfortably in the space.”

This design would be expensive and difficult to build. I’m showing it mostly because of the interior design. It looks like a custom home in many ways. Some may consider it overly extravagant, but it’s 100 times more efficient than the typical suburban home. This type of design may very well convert thousands of people to ditch their big homes and downsize.

  1. Paid for sounds good.An RV would be easier. I had to stop watching those shows on TV about tiny homes.Usually, They are crazy expensive.Cool, I have a thirty thousand dollar shed on a trailer crazy.It really isn’t hard to come up with a small shack to live in.Being legal is a whole other thing.i think our country needs to get off the high debt horse thing.Sorry to ramble.

    • Yes, a lot of them are expensive. I try to show the best design ideas that can be used in any small house. Also keep in mind everybody wants something different.

  2. There are now thousands of tiny house videos online. I watch hundreds of them and bring readers the best ones I find. There are LOTS of good reasons they’re so popular. The bottom line for many is other housing options are not affordable. The cost of new home construction and apartments is too high. Save up your money, build your own tiny home or buy a shell already framed in by a professional and soon you’ll be saving money. You can always upgrade to a bigger home later if you want.
