It’s not just millennials that are interested in tiny houses. Seniors are buying tiny homes to live their golden years off the grid. Tiny houses, which often measure less than 400 square feet, can be an attractive option for retirees who want to downsize after the kids leave the nest. Some enjoy their tiny mobile dwellings as a comfortable alternative to the traditional RV. Others park in a family member’s backyard, giving them an opportunity to maintain independence and privacy while being near loved ones. Widows and single seniors find tiny living to be less stressful and more fulfilling. By living in 166-square-feet, seniors hope to avoid a nursing home altogether. Tiny houses allow aging family members to maintain their independence and their own living space, while still being near their kids and grandkids— oftentimes on the same property.
