We support The Tiny House Movement.
Simply put, it is a social movement where people are choosing to downsize the space they live in. People are becoming happier to live in a simpler in and smaller, more efficient space. While we don’t think tiny houses are for everyone, there are lessons to be learned and applied in order to escape the cycle of debt in which almost 70% of people are trapped. The tiny house phenomenon redefines what makes a house a home, empowers people for a better future and leads a movement that breaks the mould every day. The tiny house movement promotes financial prudence, eco-friendly choices, shared community experiences, and a shift in consumerism-driven mindsets.
Tiny houses principles:
– Environmental Consciousness
– Self Sufficiency
– Life Simplification
– Sound Fiscal Plans
Why should the houses be limited just to a specific population? Why shouldn’t every student or young family or elderly couple rent land and instead of buying a flat, have a tiny house in middle of nature or in an urban setting. Close to town? The OIKOS house is suitable for any occasion as a guest-house, summerhouse, teenage house, au pair house, granny flat, allotment, home office, garden retreat and much more.
