Grow better relationships People who share their tiny homes with a partner find that living in a small space breeds more open communication, understanding and patience.For some, going tiny is a way of living a more sustainable lifestyle.A discussion on Yahoo in answer to the question, “Can seniors build and live in tiny houses for the rest of their lives” surfaced a range of opinions – including one from a commenter who cited a neighbor’s experience: “[He] sold his suburban home at the age of 67 to build a tiny house for himself measuring a little less than 500 sq ft (the typical upper limit for a small home).That house lasted him till the age of 82.” What do you think?It has a built-in platform bed, built-in shelves, space for a narrow table and a loft that accommodates a queen-sized mattress for guests.
Although the company Tiny Home Builders has a Tiny Retirement design that does away with loft beds and ladders, we haven’t yet seen fully accessible tiny houses built with universal design principals, but these are surely coming.
That’s a few hundred thousand less than a tiny Manhattan apartment and an alternative to a Florida condo.
Tiny houses are for sale in nearly every state and in general, tiny house builders will ship a completed house almost anywhere.
