Tiny Houses and the People Who Live in Them [infographic]

August 30, 2013 |  by  |  Lifestyle

The average size of a house in the United States is 2,400 square feet. That is a lot of space. Tiny houses are a fraction of that size and also have happier residents. I have lived in an apartment for 3 years now, before that I lived in a dorm room the size of a master bathroom with 3 other people — I loved it. Why are we convinced that we need tons of space to be happy? What ever happened to cozy spaces? We have become spoiled and need to snap out of it!

Remember being a kid and building a fort in the living room was the best part of a slumber party? All kids want their own playhouse or tree house to play in. Why did we grow up? Tiny houses are the ultimate playhouse, except it is more for living than playing. A tiny house is about the size of a hotel room, and I don’t know about you, but when I go on vacation my last priority is luxury in the hotel room. Because all you do is sleep in the hotel, so why waste money on an expensive one? You aren’t on vacation for the hotel, you’re on vacation for the new world around you. Tiny houses take this idea and apply to everyday life. The world is your living room.

    ….I gotta say it, but I really think this graphic is awfully misleading. Your premise is that a tiny house is better than a normal house, but most of your graphics are making comparisons against the ‘average american’ rather than the average homeowner. It’s almost self-evident that (even tiny) property owners will do better on metrics we link with success – eduation, debt, per capita income, retirement savings – it’s not really news that property owners have more money than non-owners. It would be far more meaningful if you made those comparisons against normal home owners, but I’m guessing that you didn’t because normal home owners out perform tiny home owners.

    Article is awful, misleading, lacking real information and insulting. It is not even a good advertisement.

    AS a tiny house owner, I’m wondering where these statistics come from. Nobody asked me.
