Small house during January 2016 Oregon snowfall.jpg

Small houses offer a lower environmental impact, and a philosophy of voluntary simplicity.

Small houses are also attainable by people who might otherwise be shut out of the housing market - which is a significant proportion of people today.

Lower environmental impact[edit | edit source]

The lower impact comes through:

  • Fewer resources used in construction.
  • Less space to heat or cool.
  • Less land used up, meaning:

Personal freedom[edit | edit source]

  • Leaves more money for other things.
  • Small houses (often specifically called tiny houses) are sometimes built on trailers, and can be moved easily.
