Smaller Living Spaces Can Offer Big Benefits

Smaller Living Spaces can Offer Big Benefits


Tiny homes have been a creative way to address a lack of affordable housing, as well as reduce living costs and shrink our carbon footprint. A popular construction style, we put the finished home on a deck trailer and offload it at the site. Life in smaller living spaces can offer big benefits such as being more environmentally friendly, more affordable, more intimate, and offering a simpler living style.

Tiny homes are the focal point in a broader system to address issues, concerns, and problems of the current day. They offer a path to a smaller environmental footprint, greater financial freedom, and ultimately a self-sufficient life. The tiny home movement enables you to live a life on your terms. What is the tiny home movement all about? Simplifying, freedom, sustainability—the tiny home movement is about finding housing to fit your lifestyle. It’s about not only decluttering your home and space, but decluttering your obligations, your social life, and your stress. If living off the grid is something that appeals to you then a tiny home would be a perfect choice!

“Some uses to consider are self-contained guest quarters at camp and cottage, rental property in certain areas of the city, recreational property while you build, permanent residence in a more relaxed lifestyle, rentals, or garden suites.”
–   Bill Boulton, President-CEO, Smart Modular Canada

Numerous options are included in the base price, but specific options add slightly to the cost, such as a trim package, front steps or even adding a set of stairs. Other options, such as skylights, custom interior design, or propane energy in addition to electricity add to the cost.
