Building & Buying a Tiny Home in New Hampshire
Interested in joining the growing tiny house movement? You are not alone! Tiny houses continue to grow in popularity as retirees, millennials, and even young families evaluate where – and how – they’d like to live.
While traditional new homes average about 2,300 square feet, tiny homes are typically about 1/10th of that. Great things come in small packages, however. With the right layout, even a 250-square-foot home can feel luxurious and spacious.
What’s it Like to Live in a Tiny House?
One common misconception about going tiny is the idea that one has to sacrifice modern amenities. This couldn’t be further from the truth. In fact, many people find that they can build a nicer tiny home with amenities like granite countertops, tall ceilings, and high-end appliances, than they could afford to put in a traditional home.
It’s true that tiny home dwellers typically reduce the amount of “stuff” they have in their possession. But what they really give up are the things they don’t like to do anyway – clean and maintain a larger home, pay high utility bills, and spend their time taking care of their house instead of doing the hobbies and activities they enjoy.
How Will I Use My Space?
Tiny houses can be designed and used for many different purposes:
- ADU for an aging parent or recently-launched adult child
- Rental income as a vacation destination (Airbnb)
- Mother-in-law suite or comfortable space for guests
- Personal sanctuary to escape the noise from your primary house
- RV/Travel Trailer to tour and see the country
Separating your must-haves from your wants will help you and your builder come up with a design that suits your goals and lifestyle.
