What is a Tiny House?

Tiny houses are small, fully-equipped living spaces that are designed as the centrepiece of a more sustainable, off-grid lifestyle. Although they vary in size and shape, they tend to be between 15 and 50 square metres in capacity. They’re made of sustainable materials and are easier — and cheaper — to maintain than traditional brick homes.    

Tiny houses can be placed on solid foundations but are commonly built with migration in mind. This freedom to move comes from their designation as temporary housing, which often exempts them from local planning permission.  They’re also playing a big part in a growing movement away from the stresses and strains of city life back towards the peace and tranquility of nature.

The Benefits of a Tiny House

There are lots of reasons to embrace living in a tiny house. Some of the benefits include:

  • Cost-effective: Not only are they cheaper to buy than brick and mortar homes, but they also offer significant savings on energy bills.
  • Eco-friendly: Using less energy means you’ll significantly reduce your carbon footprint. You also have the option to utilise renewable energy sources, such as solar panels to reduce your footprint further. 
  • Get back to nature: Turn your back on the excesses of modern living to return to the simplicity and beauty of nature.
  • Moveable: Move house whenever you want and enjoy a life without limits.

Join the Tiny House Movement

The tiny house movement began in the USA before gaining popularity in the UK. Although many homeowners have quickly embraced the material benefits of tiny houses — such as reduced start-up costs and smaller bills — the movement is also something of a state of mind. Many tiny house owners find themselves disillusioned with the excesses of modern living and make the decision to replace it with something more nourishing and sustainable.  

One of the biggest draws of the tiny house movement is the sense of liberation it can bring. As tiny houses are classed as temporary living accommodation, you have the freedom to move and explore as you see fit. Alternatively, if you’re eco-conscious, many of the houses come with renewable energy options, helping you to reduce your carbon footprint and do your bit for Mother Nature. 

For some tiny house enthusiasts, what matters most is getting back to basics and breathing in the clear, clean air of the off-grid life.  If you’ve ever watched the world stutter by on a cramped rush hour train, it’s likely that you’ve wondered if something ‘more’ could be out there. With house prices and living costs seemingly rising daily, this could be the perfect time to join a growing band of seekers who have rejected the status quo and discovered a life of peace and simplicity. Whether you’re a young person looking to get a place of your own, or a retiree on the cusp of your next big adventure, the tiny house movement has something for you.

FAQs

How to build a Tiny House?

Building a tiny house is a detailed process that needs to be given full consideration before starting. The main steps are:

  • Planning: Take time to think about your requirements. This includes the land you’ll build on, the main features of your house, a floor plan, and your budget.
  • Gather tools and components: You’ll need basic components, such as windows, floors, tools, appliances, lumber, a trailer, and more.
  • Advanced planning: This is the time to think about logistics, such as timings of deliveries and when to bring bigger items like beds and plumbing kit into the house.
  • Construction: At this stage, you’ll need to get the trailer ready for the house, set foundations, erect wall frames, cut windows and door frames, erect your roof frame, install doors, hang siding, and finish the roofing.
  • Plumbing and installation: You should only undertake the following steps if you’re qualified to do so. Otherwise, it’s strongly recommended that you hire professional workmen. You’ll need to plan the plumbing, gas lines, and electrical outlets, fit insulation, install electrical appliances, fit your flooring, hang wall panels, fit your kitchen, etc.

Are Tiny Houses legal in the UK?

As long as your tiny house does not exceed 19.8m x 6.7m in size, it is defined as a caravan in UK law. Therefore, tiny houses are classed as legal additional living space. The law is slightly more complicated for farm owners, as any additional farm buildings that sit on land for over 28 days may require planning permission.

Can I build a Tiny House on my land?

While it’s unlikely that you’ll need permission from a local planning officer to keep a tiny house on your own land, there could be complications if the structure inhibits light or blocks neighbours’ views. However, if you’re planning to use the site as additional living space or an office, gym, etc, then planning permission shouldn’t be necessary.

If you’re using your tiny house as a portable holiday home it’s best to check legal requirements with the Local Planning Authority (LPA) in advance. Some sites, especially those of outstanding natural beauty, have special conditions that you might need to comply with. You can, however, take your tiny house to caravan parks for long-term stays, or keep it on farmland, for up to 28 days.

Can I get a mortgage for a Tiny House?

The small size — and relatively low cost — of tiny houses means that they’re not generally considered eligible for a mortgage. However, there are plenty of options to take out a loan to fund your dreams of the perfect, moveable home.
