Normally what I do is just to condense the article (remember it is a digest) keeping just the most pertinent information, displaying all the references related to it! I never never just do a copy / paste of an article…until today! Today I decided to make an exception! Why? Because this article it is so right to the point that I could not just write a condensed article. Period!
Mahalo nui iā Gabriella Morrison mai Hanaʻia ka hale pākahi eʻae mai iaʻu e hoʻokuʻu hou i kēiaʻatikala maʻaneʻi! E hauʻoli!

As a collective, we consume more natural resources than the planet can replenish and in the last 45 years, our ua pālua ka noi no kēia mau'enewai. ʻO ka hoʻonohonohoʻana a me nā koho o ke ola,ʻo ia ke kumu nui o kēiaʻano.
The environmental cost of building the US national average 2,598sf house is substantial. You’ll need about ʻO 16,000 papa helewae o ka lāʻau a me ka 14,000sf o nā mea ulu lāʻau'ē aʻe (e like me ka lāʻau lāʻau, a pēlā aku). ʻO ka mea like kēia me nā pahu loli piha piha o 7.

I ka US, nā hale hale no 38.9% o ka hōʻaia ike hoʻonui a me 72% o ka hōʻailona Uihana Uila. Eia kekahi, ke hāʻawi nei lākou i ka 38.9% o ka hōʻailona carbon dioxide a pau o ka'āina.
In contrast, tiny houses use significantly less resources. When comparing the average sized 2,500+ sf house to the average ʻO ko 186 hale nui, the amount of resources that go into building it are much less as is the energy required to condition it. One significant way that we can lower the amount of resources required to build and maintain a home is by making it smaller.

Communication is a corner stone of a functional family dynamic. Large houses create all sorts of nooks and crannies for families to disband to. According to the Census Bureau, the average household size (how many people living in a residence) in the US has declined from 3.01 in 1973 to 2.54 in 2013 but the average home size (by square footage) has increased by 61.4%. With the average new house in the US getting larger but households getting smaller, the square footage of living space per person in a new home has increased by a whopping 91.2%.
He mea maʻalahi ke hoʻi hope ma hope o kahi puka paniʻia i nā wā o ka hakakā ma kahi noho nui a no nā kānaka e pale aku kekahi i kekahi.

Financial worry is the primary source of stress for the average person and debt is a large part of that equation. ʻO ka poʻeʻAmelika e noho nei i ka hoʻolimalimaʻana i nā aieʻoi aku ma mua. ʻO ka Debt e hoʻopau ana i ka naʻau a hiki i kēlā pilikia ke hana i nā hihia olakino koʻikoʻi (hikiʻole i ka pōʻino, hopohopo, ulia, migraine, a me nā puʻuwai puʻuwai). ʻO ka nohoʻana i loko o ka mea hoʻokahi, e hiki ai i ka maʻalahi ke kākoʻo i ka manaʻo, ke kino, a me kaʻuhane,ʻo ia mau mea a pau e pono ai ke ola hauʻoli.

Nowhere in the nā mea e hoʻohokaʻia ai ka mea make does it say anything about, “I wish I had worked harder, had a bigger house, or had more money”. Instead, the common thread found in that research is that the dying wished that they had created more joy in their lives (and were surprised to see that the choice had been theirs all along).

I ka US, nā ʻo ke kumu kūʻai no ka hana haleʻana he $ 246,453 (ʻaʻole nā kālā o nā'āina). For that amount we could have built over 7 hOMes (which cost us $33,089.72). On top of that, the ʻO ka palena nui o ka uku no ka hale nui nui loa he $ 163 whereas in a tiny house it’s anywhere from $10-$40 per month.
Along the lines of spending money, when living tiny, you just don’t have the physical space to amass unnecessary material goods. The potential to slash your spending costs is significant. The opportunity to get out of debt is much higher for those living in a tiny house than in an average house. According to Ryan Mitchell of KouKapu, 68% o nā mea kūʻai hale liʻiliʻiʻaʻole he moraki aʻo 65% he kuleana kāleka kāleka nele.
Instead, imagine living in a house potentially built for less than a year’s worth of housing payments. For many people creating a tiny life, this is a reality. The benefits of living within one’s means are significant and what’s possible when one has no need to pay off debt (housing and consumer) is tremendous (early retirement, less time needing to work, more time for self-care and with friends/family, etc.).
