The tiny house movement is an architectural and social movement that promotes a simple life in a smaller space with a focus on financial prudence, community, and a shift to less "stuff".
A tiny home is generally defined as a residential structure that is under 400 square feet. Tiny homes can be built on foundations, but they are more commonly built on trailers.
Most tiny houses get their utilities through a provider, which is the same as an RV or a traditional house. Some people wish to locate their tiny house in an area where provides do not provide services. These individuals are responsible for providing their own services.
