I did it. I got sucked into a show called Tiny House Nation and it got me thinking, could I like in a house that was under 500 square feet? My current house is about 1450 square feet. It has 3 bedroom, 1/2 baths, three floors, and a full basement that houses my home gym. I have a lot of hobbies and a lot of tools!! Could I pair that down into a house of 204 square feet?
I have to say though that they really find some great ways to save space. Large walls of shelving, or japanese style stairs with build in shelves and drawers. I love the idea of being more minimalist, but I do have a lot of “stuff”. I mean, where would my mugs go? My tools? My home gym? Seamus’ farts would be even worse in a tiny space.
With the smaller space you could cash flow the house, the house I was watching them build was under $20,000 to 35,000 and with my trying to get debt free that is a huge benefit to consider!
Putting a rustic tiny house near some hiking trails and a body of water, and you could possible sway me. I mean look at that one with the porch! The barn doors and the Carpe Diem Kitchen…Swoon!!

It is something to consider. In the mean time I need to work on pairing down my house, just in case.
Could you live in a tiny house?
