Laying the groundwork for your future tiny home can be done in just a few hours. Start by making a list of everything you want to incorporate into your own tiny home. Then grab the free home design software, SketchUp, to come up with your own tiny home plan. After that comes the financial planning. Come up with a realistic amount of money you are willing to spend on your tiny home. Remember to consider all of the steps we mentioned in chapter 3 of this book. Once you know how roughly how much your tiny home is going to cost, come up with a financial plan to start saving.
The most important step in preparing for a minimalist future of self-sufficiency, and usually the most difficult process for most people, is to begin paring down all of your possessions. Sell everything that is superfluous or that you won’t be able to take with you in your new home. This step is often the make-it-or-break-it step for people. If you find it difficult to part with your material possessions that aren’t essential to your everyday survival, then the tiny home lifestyle might not be for you. On the other hand, if the idea of ridding yourself of your excess items is exciting to you, then you are one step closer to building your own tiny home. Just be sure and save the money from the items you sell and put it in a tiny home fund. After all of your superfluous items have been sold off, you may find yourself already half way to reaching your financial goal for your tiny home fund!
Every month that passes by, most Americans sink further and further into an endless pit of debt. Don’t waste another moment. Break the cycle by starting your own tiny home plan today.
