Have a Look at The Nomad Portable Tiny Home and Plans!
A groundbreaking sustainable tiny house that's affordable and easily assembled. Living/kitchen/bath/bed are all seamlessly integrated into a 10' x 10' space. Tiny homes are all the rage these days. People have been looking for ways to simplify their daily lives, but it can be a bit overwhelming to figure out exactly where to start. Ian Kent thinks he has the solution with his Nomad Micro Home.
This cost effective (roughly $30,000) micro home can be shipped anywhere on the planet, and can be built all by yourself. The home measures in at 10’x10′ (100 square feet), and has everything you need to live comfortably. The two story space includes a downstairs living room, kitchen, and bathroom while a small bedrooms is located upstairs. The Nomad Micro Home has been equipped with solar panels, a rain collection system, and large windows to help the small space feel larger than it actually it is, which also provides a nice source of natural light. Staying true to its name, the Nomad home can be easily relocated.
Smaller homes are less expensive than larger ones in terms of taxes and building, heating, maintenance, and repair costs. In addition to costing less, small houses may encourage a less cluttered and simpler lifestyle and reduce ecological impacts for their residents. The typical size of a small home seldom exceeds 500 square feet. The typical tiny house on wheels is usually less than 8 ft by 20 ft, with livable space totaling 120 square feet or less, for ease of towing and to exempt it from the need for a building permit.
Small houses may emphasize design over size, utilize dual purpose features and multi-functional furniture, and incorporate technological advances of space saving equipment and appliances. Vertical space optimization is also a common feature of small houses and apartments.
As small houses may be attractive as second homes, their increased utilization may lead to development of more land. People interested in building a small home can encounter institutional “discrimination” when building codes require minimum size well above the size of a small home. Also, neighbors may be hostile because they fear negative impacts on their property values. There has also been opposition based on this fact, due to concerns about increased taxes.
Small and tiny houses have received increasing media coverage including a full length documentary and a serial television show, Tiny House Nation, in 2014 and Tiny House Hunters. The possibility of building one's own home has fueled the movement, particularly for tiny houses on wheels. Tiny houses on wheels are often compared to RVs. However, tiny houses are built to last as long as traditional homes, they use traditional building techniques and materials, and they are aesthetically similar to larger homes
