FRUGAL LIVING – Want to simplify your life? Want to lower your monthly expenses? Want to reduce your dependence on your work? A small house can be an answer for you and your family.
If you have felt burdened by all the things that belong to you, not to mention all the bills that arrived with some of the items, you are not alone. A minimalist movement is again attacking this country because it continues to be many people looking for freedom from financial obligations such as rent, large-scale revision of houses, and electricity bills. Small houses are part of a minimalist phenomenon, allowing people to make life simpler, while always having a stylish home and meeting all their needs.
Small houses aren’t just about looking funny – they are part of a growing movement that promotes prolonged life. Many designers have created innovative ways to make these small houses very well equipped and, yes, quite adorable.
At the bottom of this is the property of having a small house:
1. Less initial fee
Small house is clearly smaller than a traditional house. There is little material and energy needed to build it because of its size. Because small houses often have most of the features that traditional houses have (kitchens, plumbing, roofs, floors) the price per square foot is generally more expensive. But because the totality dimension of the house is much smaller, the totality price is only a fraction of the traditional house.
2. Consume less energy
Small houses require far less energy to heat and cool just because they have far less air space. Because many small houses on wheels, small house owners can move their homes at the base of large plants in the heat, and out into the sun during the cold.
Two bonus triggers for consuming significant power are the refrigerator and hot water heater. Both are generally smaller in small homes and power consumption is far less. The use of other energy is your own power. It didn’t take long to tidy up a very small residence. I have looked at people who are very creative by consuming less the power of their little house and using the fact that their house is very small. Solar panels, wood stoves, wind turbines, composting toilets, the list continues to increase.
3. Consume less water and waste
If you have a small shower and a small hot water heater, maybe your shower will be much shorter. If you have a small trash can, you might want to create less trash. Use less water and create less waste for your area and wallet.
4. Less payment for repairs
The revision fee for your tiny house is a math problem. The cost of renovating a 2,000-square-foot house would be far less than the 300-square-foot home. This is certainly due to the reduction of materials and labor.
5. Less land to buy and treat
A small settlement wants less land. Because many cities have a limited number of homes, you may be obligated to buy land outside the city without limits. Outside the country is cheaper to buy and less taxing. When you decide to buy a small piece of land where you want to live, you want to spend less time cutting the lawn. When you buy a regular-sized lot, you want more space on your yard.
6. Less food
When you have a small kitchen, you want to have a small meal in your home. When you can look through your kitchen window and see fresh vegetables growing in it, you want to spend less on products. By eating less at your small home, you want to reduce your meal bills and body weight.
7. Less taxes
Because the value of your home and your little land is worth less (assuming you justify buying land instead of rent) your tax bill will be lower. Savings can be used for investment, retirement, tuition for your kids, or vacation.
8. Less insurance
Insurance for your home can be increased by lightning, most importantly when it comes time to use it. Tiny houses cost far less to insure because they are less valuable. Many insurance industries think a small house on wheels like an RV. Because the insurance industry is not a non-profit industry and do business to create money, you want to often face the difficulty of getting money from them. By having a small house, you can minimize the amount you share with them.
9. Less interest paid
When I bought my early home, at first I paid more for interest than the principle. It’s no secret that throughout the 30-year loan, you want to pay more for interest than the house itself. The majority of small house owners sort out to pay cash for their little house, or pay it off quickly. The amount you save by avoiding interest at the conclusion would be a very large amount. More than enough to buy in-laws a small house and have it located behind (back lane) of your property.
10. More disposable income
All the alibis above that I registered for buying a small house have focused on “less”. Consume less, less money from the bag. All this makes you have more money in the bank. If you write a record of your regular expenses, you want to quickly realize that the payment linked to your home represents the majority of your expenses. By owning and living in a small house, you cut your living costs at each level.
11. More freedom
I put the best for last. When you have and live in a small house, you release 2 of your very valuable energy sources, money and time, not to mention some of the earth’s precious energy sources, water and energy.
Is your standard of living at this time avoiding you working at the job you want? Does it avoid you going on vacation and taking time off when you like it? Do you have to risk spending time doing what you want just to pay your bills? Are you afraid about the Earth and the area and leave it in good condition for those who are exploring us?
By living in a small house, you release money by cutting costs on a large scale. You use less natural energy sources. You free up time by spending less on sterilizing and maintaining your home. You trade square feet for freedom.
