What’s So Great About Tiny Homes in New Jersey?

The tiny house craze has come to New Jersey! If you’re interested in building your own tiny house, there’s never been a better time. 

With the massive shifts in daily life we’ve experienced over the past few years, one thing is clear – people value their time and their loved ones now more than ever. Tiny houses offer dwellers the ultimate freedom in how they want to spend their days and whom to spend them with.

Benefits of New Jersey Tiny Houses

The popularity of tiny homes continues to rise for many reasons. First, downsizing to a space about 1/10th the size of a new home automatically simplifies life. With a smaller space to clean, heat, cool, and maintain, homeowners have more time and money to do other things they enjoy such as play games, grow a garden, practice a hobby, relax, entertain, and explore their surroundings. 

Tiny homes are also:

  • Environmentally friendly, with small footprints and energy-efficient appliances and  materials
  • Affordable, allowing homeowners to upgrade and make their tiny house feel luxurious
  • Customizable to every homeowner’s personal situation
  • Aesthetically beautiful with sophisticated designs and layouts
  • Mobile so dwellers can explore the country and bring their home with them

What I Need to Give Up to Go Tiny?

Experienced tiny home builders can pack a lot of value into a relatively small space, which is why tiny home owners don’t have to “give up” much in the way of modern amenities.

While living in a 400-square-foot space isn’t right for everyone, it can be a liberating experience. The design is everything, and custom builders like Utopian Villas work with clients to create a high-end, luxurious, comfortable and sophisticated home at a fraction of the price of a traditional build.

Where Should I Build My New Jersey Tiny House?

Each city and town has their own building codes and zoning ordinances. So whether you’d like to live permanently in a tiny house, build it as an additional living or guest space (ADU, mother-in-law suite, granny apartment), or even add one to your property as a source of rental income, it’s best to contact your local planning and zoning commission to get an idea of what you’ll need to do for your tiny home.
