Most people are not considering building a tiny house. Most of us want homes that are larger, in fact MUCH larger, than a typical tiny home. Mobile, trailer-ready tiny homes are usually between 100 and 300 square feet and tiny homes with a permanent foundation can be up to 600 square feet. To put that into perspective, according to reference.com, the average American bedroom in a new home is between 120 and 150 square feet. And master bedrooms are typically larger, averaging more than 200 square feet. That 200 square feet, by the way, does not take into account the master closet space or the master bathroom.
The closest any of us will ever come to tiny house living will be the time that we spend in a stateroom, on a cruise ship. The typical room on a cruise ship is 150 to 200 square feet. So, if you can’t imagine your whole house fitting into such a small space, a tiny house is probably not for you. But, even if you have no desire to live in just a few hundred square feet, there are many lessons that we can learn from the tiny house movement.
