The Tiny House Movement has exploded in recent years. It’s a very romantic idea… shedding your worldly belongings and eliminating the financial burdens and permanence of a typical home.
It can also be a huge risk. If you’re currently a homeowner, you may have deeply planted roots. It’s possible you have a lot of important memories tied to your current living situation. And maybe associated financial obligations. You’re likely very comfortable with your space and physical belongings. This is common.
People have mistakenly committed to the tiny house lifestyle and later regretted it. It’s a huge decision.
Fortunately, we know of one great way to hedge your risk. Simply try out the lifestyle before you dive in.
Spend a few days in a tiny house and see how it feels. This should help you answer some of those BIG questions, like…
- Will I feel claustrophobic?
- Can I cook normal meals?
- Am I able to relax?
- Will I miss having more space?
- Can I handle the bathroom situation?
- Will my partner and I get annoyed with each other?
- Can my pet fit?
I’m sure there are many more you can think of.
When it comes to these major issues, don’t speculate. Give it a test run. You should be able to find plenty of options on AirBnB. Below we highlight 12 of the most interesting Texas Tiny Houses throughout the state.
