There are many who would like to simplify their lives, but aren’t quite sure how to do it. Taking care of a big home can take a lot of time, and while you might enjoy the space in your home, and the ability to entertain large groups of friends, is it worth the time and cost?

Some have decided that the answer to that question is no, and they have chosen to live in a tiny home that is less than 1000 square feet.

Since these buildings are so tiny, some might think that they aren’t subject to the same standards that a regular size home is, but that is not the case. In fact, in some cases, there can be regulations that apply specifically for a tiny home.

While you might be loving the thought of simple, minimalist living, it is important that you go into the tiny home world with both eyes open.
