Livin’ Small: Tiny Cabins

   Tiny houses have become a popular home trend. A lot of people are ditching the typical bigger house and going for these itty-bitty ones. Cabins have now come into the mix as well. Going tiny may sound too difficult to some people. While it is a very big change it allows you more flexibility and a simpler life.

 

     Tiny cabins are much cheaper to build or buy than a traditional home. This could be one of the main reasons people have started to shift to these little homes. Below is an info-graphic from www.grindtv.com showing some of the financial benefits of tiny homes/cabins.

 

     Like other tiny houses, tiny cabins can be stationary or mobile. With a mobile tiny cabin you have the flexibility to travel around with your home. The size of a typical tiny cabin ranges from under 100sqft. To 1,500sqft.

    Tiny cabins usually have an open, flowing floor plan. Due to the size, it’s more difficult to keep spaces separated. A loft or small upstairs space is commonly used for a bedroom. However, depending on the size of your tiny cabin, you may be able to have more than one sleeping area.

    Living in a tiny cabin helps you to have a simpler lifestyle. With little space to store things, it forces you to decide what you need versus what you want. It also helps take the emphasis off of material things and place that emphasis on people, experiences, and life. With that in mind, you have to get creative with storage space to accommodate the things you need.
