What kind of people live in tiny, portable homes? Matt Hickman of mnn.com, shared an infographic developed by “tiny life” advocate Ryan Mitchell, which shows that residents of tiny homes generally earn more than the average American, have less credit card debts, and are twice as likely to have a master’s degree. 68% of them are mortgage-free, and 55% have more savings than the average American.

The infographic highlights the kind of reputation tiny, portable homes have been gaining – that they are the intelligent solution to modern housing concerns. Tiny homes are not the only kind of portable structure available to interested customers; other portable buildings that can serve as storage units, garages, and many other functions may also be purchased from reputable contractors. Certain portable buildings in Missouri such as barns and sheds are used to complement a farming lifestyle.


The increasing popularity of portable buildings is not surprising, particularly if one considers the benefits they provide. For one, the cost of getting a portable structure is generally less than building on-site. The pre-fab, mass-produced construction units used in portable buildings make them less expensive than standard building materials.

In addition to the lower costs, portable buildings also take less time to construct. All a customer needs to do is to order the building from the manufacturer, who then makes the necessary inspections on the site where the building is to be erected. Depending on the manufacturer, the building may be shipped to the customer already assembled and completed; or in parts to be assembled by the customer.

Not only does the entire process take a lot less time, it also causes less disruptions to the property and lifestyle of the customer. The materials used in hardy Missouri portable buildings, such as those constructed by Classic Buildings, are also easier to maintain, and replacement parts are readily available in many hardware stores. Additionally, portable buildings are constructed in compliance with regulatory building codes so they are at least on par with on-site buildings in terms of durability and strength.

The benefits of portable buildings range from financial to practical. It is not surprising, therefore, that they seem to be the choice of wise investors, as Mitchell’s infographic indicates. Investing in portable buildings can help customers save up for retirement while maintaining a good quality of life.
