4 GOOD REASONS TO BUILD A TINY HOUSE ON WHEELS

Getting a house is a one hell of a decision that one has to take in his life. It is a decision about a structure that you’d call home. A dwelling where you’d spend whole of your life in. normally people buy or build themselves a home that a normal American already has, also that is the first thought that comes to mind when someone thinks of road. Going a little off the road, some people build tiny homes on wheels, but for every decision that one takes in his life, one always needs to have a WHY behind it. All the big and important decisions should be backed by a strong answer to the WHY.

Here, I will help you find some of the answers to pacify your quest for why:

1. PEOPLE WANT TO BE FREE, MOVABLE AND NON-RESTRICTED

The single most important reason for getting yourself a tiny home is this. You want to live free, non-restricted to a place (you aren’t a cattle), life is all about the adventures and you don’t want to miss out on these by remaining ties to a single place. Why remain tied to a single place and not make the world your home. The idea of committing to a piece of real estate for a house that would not be able to come with you, seems risky and not something that you’d want.

Okay, they say that the value of real-estate prices are bound to go up, but man, wait, what about financial crises of 2008 and the aftereffects of it. With your tiny house on wheels you can move anywhere you like, be it the mountains, desert, beach or a plain, take your home wherever you go.

2. MONEY: TINY HOUSE ON WHEELS IS AFFORDABLE

Money is a very important aspect when it comes to housing. The typical cost of a single-story home of 2500 square feet is anywhere between $180,000 – $400,000 and you wouldn’t want to invest all of your savings and future savings into one single piece of asset which you don’t even need. You can easily cut down on this by going tiny or maybe small.

The cost to build a tiny house on wheels is about $20,000 – $35,000 depending upon the luxury you are aiming for

Tiny house costs about only 10% of your normal home. Imagine what not can you do with your saved $200,000. This is like getting a home for 90% discount.

 

3.PROPERTY OWNERSHIP IS PROBLEMATIC

If you have your home on your own land, its fine, but generally people don’t. People normally rent the land they put their house on. Overall, whatever you do, if you rent the land or if you own it, you need to pay the taxes and other maintenance charges occur which take a slice of your pocket. When you rent the land, you are the mercy of the owner and can practically kick you out anytime. It’s a lot of headache.

Furthermore, land ownership latches you to one place. For the free soul that you are, you wouldn’t want that. Being said that, there’s one solution to this land ownership problem, yes, get yourself a tiny house on wheels. You can move all the time or be stationary if you want to. Live in a county or in the outskirts of the city, there’s absolutely no problem, it’s just you and your tiny house.

4. CHUCK THE BUILDING AND ZONING REGULATIONS

Primary issue with governmental regulations is that a tiny house on wheels isn’t considered a house, well that’s what the law says. It is usually considered to be a load on a flatbed trailer. In this case, the trailer has to be registered with the department of motor vehicles. Hence it is not considered a house.

The codes vary by counties and if you plan to use your THOW as a residential unit, you need to have Plans designed by an Architect and approved by your county’s planning department.

Well, the good part here is, since your tiny house on wheels cannot be very big, it won’t be regulated by the government. Houses under 100 square feet are not regulated and don’t have any restrictions from the government. This is one of the primary reasons that people choose to build their tiny houses on wheels.\
