Tiny House Route to Financial Freedom? Hmmmmmm…..

I see these tiny houses that are 80 to 100 thousand dollars….and think, “how are they going to save money with something like that?”

This morning I remembered that most of the houses around these days are pretty expensive.

You could pay a million dollars for a house that’s not very impressive if you live in a high priced area.

So….a hundred thousand dollar house is going to be a bargain if your neighbors are living in houses that are really inflated in price.

I don’t have a whole lot of perspective, though.

We didn’t pay a whole lot for a gutted old house on a couple of acres back in the early 90’s.

Because we paid cash for all the improvements, it didn’t foster any debt and (after a long process of rehabbing) we had an affordable place to live.

That was a hard way to go, though.

It would have been nicer to have something….nicer….right off the bat.

When we do it again…..and we will….soon….we’ll go a different route.

You have to pay the people who can do it efficiently if you’re going to get it done in less than 10 or 20 years.

These tiny houses are nice, though.

I’m not as enamored of them as I was at first.

I think that rehabbing an existing home is a more appealing option…(RECYCLING!)…but the tiny house movement…and the reasons people got behind it….is a positive shift away from all the mega-mansions and consumeristic attitudes that some folks think they need.

They serve a need, I suppose.

So….a brand new tiny house that seems expensive might be a good option to save money.

That’s a freaking new paradigm for me….for sure.
