The tedious conventional process of building a house is now history.
Until now, you had to manage the project yourself, hire an architect, make hundreds of design decisions, spend countless hours in showrooms selecting finishes, fixtures, and appliances, search for trustworthy local builders and contractors, go through a nontransparent bid process, brace yourself when the bids come in higher than expected, endure a year or more of construction, change orders, unexpected delays, and extra costs. You couldn’t know how much your home is going to cost until you move in.
We decided to find a better way.
Casita homes’ main advantage is that they can be delivered and installed on your lot at a fraction of the cost of building or remodeling a conventional home. Upfront, transparent pricing means you’ll know exactly how much your home will cost from day one. Move up without moving away and get the new home you’ve always dreamed of but thought you couldn’t afford with Casita Homes.
• ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY
One of the most cited reasons people “go tiny” is their desire to experience a more sustainable lifestyle. These micro-houses have been proven to be energy efficient for numerous reasons. Because they are so small, tiny houses require much less energy consumption overall: heating, cooling, and lighting a small space is always easier than keeping up with a sprawling layout. Tiny houses with solar panels have an even smaller carbon footprint! Furthermore, in line with our commitment to sustainability, Casita Homes carries out all its processes in the eco-friendliest way possible, guaranteeing a minimum environmental impact.
• ELIMINATING THE EXTRA SPACES
People are choosing to downsize the space they live in, simplify, and live with less. Every day, more and more people embrace the tiny life philosophy and the freedom that accompanies this minimalist lifestyle. The small house movement is way more than merely living in a small space, although a small house is undoubtedly part of it!
If you consider the space you use in your own home, you will find that it is no more than a tiny house with some useless extras. While you have many places to store stuff, the average person or couple does not live in very much space. Here are the top 4 places you live in your home:
The room you spend the most time in -unless you work from home- and most of it is in your bed. You have some space for clothes storage, but beyond that, this is all that space is used for. Now think about the amount of unnecessary space you have in your bedroom.
If you prepare meals and eat at home, this is the next most popular spot in a home. In many homes, it is also the central meeting and communication hub. The kitchen includes places for food, equipment and dish storage, appliances, counters for food preparation, and a place to eat.
While this area goes by many names, including great room, family room, rec room, etc., it is the place where you spend time doing what you do when you aren’t at your bedroom or cooking.
Certainly, a key place in every home, this room sometimes includes clothes washing facilities as well.
Beyond this, you may have some specialized areas you frequent occasionally, but, essentially, the rest is hallways and space.
Tiny Homes eliminate the extra space, have no halls, and have no room to hide the stuff you rarely or never will use. Everything identified above is included in each tiny home, along with dozens of new features that you will love to discover!
• DECREASED MAINTENANCE
One of the most apparent benefits of a tiny house? Reduced upkeep! If your home is only 30 m2, there’s only so much clutter you can accumulate (without going insane!). Dusting, vacuuming, and sweeping will take a fraction of the time. Repairs will also be on a reduced-scale, ensuring they stay smaller in cost as well, i.e., fixing a tiny roof is much less of a hassle than its larger counterpart!
• A SIMPLER LIFE
A tiny house doesn’t have room for any kind of excess stuff; bulging wardrobes, elaborate electronics, and vast libraries of books and videos. Tiny homeowners pare their belongings down to the essentials, keeping only the items that truly enrich their lives.
• LESS STUFF
This follows naturally from having to de-clutter to move into a tiny home. You have less stuff, but everything goes somewhere. You’ll never let things pile up on the floor just because you don’t know where it goes or because that back closet is just too full.
What is it your mom always says? “A place for every item, and every item in its place.”
Again, if you love to clean, this won’t mean anything to you. However, if you’re perpetually cluttered and untidy, this will be a great bonus to you because you can finally quit worrying about tidying before guests come over. Even if you let things get a little untidy, cleaning becomes much, much faster than before.
• EASIER & AFFORDABLE TO DECORATE
You won’t need much in the way of decorating for a tiny house, so it’s going to cost a lot less to decorate and customize; it’s also going to be a lot easier and cheaper to customize your tiny house.
Regardless of your personal preferences or space needs, the ability to customize and other tiny houses’ advantages can’t be denied. Considering all of this, it’s no wonder more. More people are turning away from Traditional House, which has sadly led to oppressive consumer debt and deciding to live large in a whole new unique way of living in a tiny house.
• FULLY FURNITURED
We include everything. As in, really, everything: your couch, curtains, kitchen table. It is not simply furnished. It is fully furnished with luxury finishes and high-end amenities.
Just pack the clothes in your closet and head to your next home. It sounds like the perfect scenario, right?
• LESS HEATING & COOLING EXPENSES
Living in a smaller home inherently leads to huge savings. You’ll spend less to heat and cool your home, as well as on general maintenance. You can have a beautiful house to call your own at a fraction of the price of a standard.
Many people love the idea of a tiny house but don’t really want to restrict their total living space to 30 m2. Many families around the country are finding additional uses for these petite dwellings! They can serve as an add-on, mother-in-law suite, guest house, home office, studio, rental property, and so much more.
If you love to garden, nothing could be better than living in a tiny house because you’ll have more space for those delicious veggies and fragrant flowers. Maybe even a pond or a meadow to have a picnic with the people you love!
