The tiny house movement started to help people lead a debt-free life and to promote a simple lifestyle. Reducing carbon footprint was also an objective of this campaign.
The outcome of tiny house movement
People with middle-income levels saw it as a way to become financially stable as the majority of their income goes on to pay their house rent and most people struggle to pay the monthly mortgage fees. People with high-income levels found tiny houses very ‘cute’ and they took it as a holiday experience. They also used it as an extension of their house and used it as children’s playroom, home office or studio.
Gradually, people have started to see that tiny house cannot be the ultimate solution for middle and high-class people. As people will have children, they will need more space and they won’t be able to stay in a tiny house. However, the tiny house movement is now seeing a new light. They are now being thought of being a resolution for the poor Americans.
Tiny houses for the poor people
In many cities, experimental tiny houses are built for the homeless people. Changes in zoning law are required for this project to expand. Fundraising activities are underway to build homes having an area between 125 to 400 square feet. Various non-profit organizations are working together to make these homes available for the poor. The architects are coming up designs to build a fully functional tiny house.
Tiny houses can give an opportunity for the low-income people to own their home. They can then pass this asset to their future generation, helping them to be more financially secure.living
