The Tiny House or Small House Movement is a social movement that is gaining momentum across the country. Schutt Log Homes and Mill Works has been interested in this trend for several years. Recently we have become involved with The Tiny House Collective in Kansas City, MO. Our goal in joining with them is to raise awareness and provide materials and support for a tiny house community in Kansas City.

Where the average American home is 2600 square feet, tiny houses are generally under 500 square feet and small houses are under 1000 square feet. These little houses can be built on a foundation or on a trailer. Tiny houses built on a trailer are a maximum of 8’ x 20’which gives up to 120 square feet of living space. Opting for building on a trailer makes the tiny house portable and possible to build without zoning or permit regulations. The main issue with building a tiny or small house on a permanent foundation is city and county zoning requirements. Opting for building on a trailer makes the tiny house portable and possible to build without zoning or permit regulations. It is necessary to be sure to contact all permitting entities before starting the construction of a tiny or small house.

The Tiny and Small House Movement is attractive to many people for a variety of different reasons. Such as:

Some people are attracted to the simple life a tiny home offers, with low maintenance, little room for clutter and overall less time spent on upkeep , a tiny house gives back extra time.

Some people are attracted to tiny houses for environmental reasons. The small size has a small carbon footprint creating much less of an impact on our environment and uses far fewer resources to build, heat and cool. Tiny living can be green living at its best.

The financial considerations of tiny living are huge. The small size of the home make it much less costly to build, heat, cool, maintain, and not to mention the taxes can be far less for a tiny house. Creative and crafty people enjoy finding ways to get the most out of the small spaces by designing loft spaces, built in storage and multi-use furniture. Creativity is a must in a tiny house.

Without a doubt the Tiny House and Small House Movements are getting a lot of attention from communities across the country. These homes are a great option for empty nesters, students getting on their feet financially, vacation homes, guest homes, or people just looking for a simple way of life. Schutt Log Homes and Mill Works is proud to be a part of the future of tiny homes and is working on several new plans for tiny and small houses.  We love working with our customers designing homes and we can’t wait to see what plans and ideas our tiny and small house customers will come up with.
