I struggle with this one a lot. Home should be a refuge of comfort and safety. Ideally we should all be living in a place that makes us happy and satisfied to the extent that we aren’t always desiring to go on “vacation” or to some place beautiful in order to rest and rejuvenate ourselves. But living in a tiny house I find myself doing just that.
Is this bad? I don’t think so.

I believe that for our future housing to be sustainable it needs to return to human scale. Our homes should include what we need to feel comfortable on a daily basis, but not more. Less space means less stuff — fewer things to clean, to maintain, to fix. All this means more time for introspection, gardening, getting back to the simple things in life. A goal of mine is for this smaller dwelling to encourage me to be outdoors, to connect with my neighbors, and to foster collaborative, supportive community. It also acts as a reminder that any of us (even with no construction experience) can take the building of our own home back into our own two hands, if we so choose. Tiny living isn’t without its sacrifices, but maybe that’s a good thing? It’s about time we took a good look at what we really need to be happy, to rethink what it means to be a homeowner and to be successful in life.
