You’d be forgiven for thinking that tiny living was merely a fad or a craze that people would soon forget about, much like other popular living and home-style trends that have been and gone over the last few decades.
However, tiny living is a trend that has every right to stay in the hearts and minds of the public due to the genuine benefits that it offers.
Tiny housing is far more energy-efficient and environmentally friendly than most other forms of housing but you can also save yourself a pretty penny while you are at it.
The cost of housing rises every day and it is getting more and more difficult for the average working person to even afford the cost of living, let alone afford their very own home.
Tiny housing is a fantastic option not only in terms of buying a smaller house,
But if you are able to build your own custom tiny house then the cost could be even cheaper as you would only need to pay for the materials seeing as you are providing your own manpower!
Custom tiny housing is a particularly interesting choice if you are considering investing in the tiny house market and so with that in mind, we are going to be looking at 20 interesting and unique custom tiny houses.
Let’s get started!
