Imagine your entire home was no bigger than a living room. That’s the new reality for those taking part in the emerging tiny house movement. Whether it’s an environmental decision or a financial one, moving into a micro home as small as 100-square-feet forces people to cut down on personal possessions and, inevitably, reduce their footprint. Still, the average size of a new single-detached home in Canada is 2,000 square feet, according to the latest figures from the Canadian Home Builders’ Association. That means that most of us are used to the luxury of space and choosing to live in a much-reduced area takes planning and adjustment. Luckily, you don’t have to go into it blind. Try out one of these tiny rentals to see if you’re truly up for downsizing.
