Affordable Small Homes“Home is where the heart is” — you have more than likely come across this phrase quite often. While everybody has a certain dream home design in mind, not everybody can afford to realize the dream. While many people dream of owning a big house, many are never able to due to budget constraints. Which begs the question – why would you want to tie yourself down to the cost and living expenses of a big house when there are equally great small affordable homes designs?

Instead of wishing for a big luxurious home, wouldn’t it be better to settle for an affordable one? Not only is affordable housing a great idea but it is also very pleasant to live in one. Cost isn’t always an indication of quality – especially quality of life! Affordable housing does not have to be boring. These days you can choose from some very attractive and unique designs.

A tiny house is best suited for a single person or a couple however there are some small families that are making it work too. If you have a small family and don’t think a very small house will work, you could consider a modular home. Modular homes are also becoming quite popular and you should easily find lots of styles to choose from. A modular home is defined as a manufactured house in the sense that it is partially manufactured in a warehouse, the pieces are transported to the chosen site and then it’s assembled.

The best modular homes are the ones that are small in size because there isn’t a lot of difficulty associated with transportation or assembly, it is less costly than a larger model, and the cost of living is considerably less than its counterpart. Bargain seekers are particularly attracted to this type of home because it scores high on comfort factor and is very attractive to look at.

You can also choose to have your own house designed and built in an affordable manner. You will need to find the land site where your home will be situated and go from there. Unless you have prior knowledge of home design and construction, you will need to learn more before beginning. You will want to learn from the professionals, or at the very least – people who have done it before you. There are quite a few resources and companies that specialize in building a tiny house. That is where you will want to start your research and where to gain the best knowledge.

When it is time for you to begin planning and implementing your next home, think about what is really important to you and your life. You can decide on a big house that takes up all your time and money, or a very small affordable house which will leave you with the spare time and money for what is most important in life.
