Downsizing is a big step for most and dreaming about a tiny house and actually living in one is a huge step. I highly recommend that you try living in the space you see yourself in for at least two weeks.
3 Ways To Try Tiny Living
Draw it Out
Draw out the size of the home you visualize living in with painter’s tape in a portion of your current home. Make sure you divide it up to include the bathroom, kitchen, living, and sleeping areas. Then literally live in that space for two weeks and see how it works for you. You will need to be very disciplined to do this.
Rent a Tiny House
Using Airbnb or one of the Tiny House Vacation Rentals available across the country, rent a tiny house that is similar in size for a minimum of a week but it is better for two weeks and live in the tiny house.
Rent an RV
Rent a trailer or motorhome of similar size to the tiny house you want to live in for two weeks. Stay in it full-time either traveling or in one place.
Choosing one of these options will give you a good idea of what it would be like living in such a tiny space. You will decide one way or the other but with a much smaller investment if you decide it is not right for you.
