Why do we love tiny homes so much? In part, it’s because they show us that life without never-ending piles of stuff is actually possible. To live in a tiny house, you have to pare down your life to bare essentials. When there’s only room for the things you really need, priorities become clear.
Then there’s the fact that tiny houses are often meant to travel … or to provide a destination far from the demands of real life. Wheeled or stationary, tiny homes tend to offer vistas far more interesting than the view outside your office or kitchen window.
Beyond all that, tiny homes are just cute. If you were ever the kind of kid who wanted to live inside a dollhouse or treehouse, you get the appeal.
Of course, your real life might make full-time tiny-home living difficult. If that’s the case, the next best thing is indulging in a little armchair travel.
