Tiny Houses And The People Who Live In Them Infographic

 

Today’s infographic Monday  I have one from The Tiny Life Blog on tiny houses. They spent several hundred hours crunching data on tiny houses to come up with an infographic. 

 

More Tiny House People Are Mortgage Free

I want to break out a few numbers to discuss. 68% of tiny house people over 29.3 % of all us homeowners have no mortgage. More than half of us tiny house dwellers do not pay rent or a mortgage. That is a huge difference. More than double. The freedom you gain without paying a mortgage is amazing. For many, it can free you up to not work a job you hate. You can work a job you love or work fewer hours so you can spend more time with your loved ones. 

 

No Debt

I love this statistic. 89% of those that live in a tiny house have less credit card debt than average American’s. 65% of us, myself included, have zero credit card debt. If you believe like me that debt is slavery then this should give you hope. Many are realizing they have been fed a lie and escaping. The trend of getting a bigger and bigger house all the while drowning in debt is dying. 

Not Just The Young

If you think that just us youngsters are building tiny houses the giving the system the finger you are wrong. 2 out of 5 tiny house owners are over 50 years old. That comes out to 38% of tiny house people. The 40~50-year-old group has the lowest percentage with only 18%. So it would seem the older and wiser you get the more you realize the need to beat the system with a tiny house.

Tiny House Update 1/5/2015

As you noticed I took off most of December for the holidays and to finish up the tiny house for the move. The flooring alone took almost an entire week. My main concern was to get the living room and loft completed to move in. I wanted to get the entire project done before moving in. Time and money became an issue though. There are a few projects left to be done. A few really important ones.

I’ll have to put them on the back burner though. The race to beat the cold weather is over. It has arrived. This week will see temps in the single digits. I saw that one day is supposed to get down to -1. That’s extremely cold here in the south. The freezing temps puts a real hamper on things. So let me fill you in on what Has been goin on and share some pictures.

Today I have another update for the tiny house build. I shot some new video after the ceiling was up. There is a bit more done after the video. Finally all the ceiling boards are up. In the video there is still a gap in the ceiling. We had to cut boards to fit where the boards met. Above the loft we removed the support brackets to give more head space. The rest of the ceiling has a flat area in the center. As of right now where they meet is a hollow triangle that needs to be covered.
