Today we are going to take a good look at tiny houses for sale and why this minimalist lifestyle is growing in popularity.

We will answer your questions about why a tiny house would be a good choice for you and show you why Classic Buildings makes the best tiny houses for sale in Missouri. Let’s get started.
The tiny house movement is taking America by storm
The Tiny House Phenomenon
The tiny house movement has taken off in the United States in recent years, particularly as a result of economic troubles where many people have lost their larger homes. A tiny house allows you to live a simpler life that has everything you actually need at a much lower price tag and a much lower effect on the environment.
People who have chosen minimalist living do so for practical, ethical, and emotional reasons. “The simple act of living modestly transmits a bold message about who they are.”
The recent trend of tiny living can be traced to Sarah Susanka’s 1998 book called “The Not So Big House.” which outlined the benefits of smaller houses. For centuries, people lived in tiny dwellings such as caves, yurts, wigwams, igloos, and grass huts out of necessity, but today’s tiny house members are choosing to live in smaller dwellings.
Enjoy economic freedom with the tiny house lifestyle
The minimalist lifestyle of the tiny house dweller means that you have the “economic freedom to live a bigger life, instead of having a bigger house.”
Advantages of the Tiny House Minimalist Lifestyle
With the tiny house minimalist lifestyle comes many great advantages including:
- You have the possibility of living mortgage free because the cost is so small compared to a larger home
- You can own your own home instead of having to rent
- With lower initial and monthly costs, you can save more money for the future
- You will have fewer possessions to tie you down
- You will be making a much smaller impact on the environment; they have a smaller environmental footprint
- You can have little or no debt
How Tiny Is a Tiny House?
There is no rule stating how tiny a house has to be in order to be considered a tiny house, however most tiny houses range from 60 to 400 square feet with some coming in as large as 1000 square feet. Classic buildings can build you a tiny house in whatever size you want. Our portable tiny houses are generally smaller at around 100 square feet or more and our permanent models are larger averaging 1000 square feet.

The Classic Buildings Tiny House Difference
If you want to become a part of the tiny house movement, we can help. Here are just a few of the reasons to get your tiny home built by Classic Buildings.
Just because you choose to live in a tiny house, doesn’t mean that it has to be boring and have a “cookie cutter” layout and look. Classic Buildings can offer you full customization for your tiny house. Our tiny houses for sale are fully customizable including the layout, colors, style, roofing, and interiors. Bring us your ideas and we will make it happen in a design that is totally unique to you.
The Classic Ventilation Guarantee:
All of our tiny houses for sale are guaranteed to come with ridge ventilation and vented drip edge. A ridge vent is a kind of vent that is installed at the peak of a sloping roof. The Classic Buildings ridge vent runs the full length of our buildings and there are screened air vents on both sides.
The ridge vent allows warm, humid air to escape out of a building’s attic and it helps to circulate comfortable air inside your building. This feature will make your tiny house much more comfortable.
