6 Tiny Homes Perfect For Newlyweds

There are lots of benefits to living small that are particularly attractive to newlyweds. Many are financial: Mortgage costs for tiny homes, if any, are minimal and utility fees are also low. Of course, this is helpful for couples who are just starting out and may have debt, school loans and limited funds.

Or better yet, they can start saving up for early retirement. via huffingtonpostTiny Homes For NewlywedsTiny Home Assembled In Just One Day

It may look like a cabin, but this is actually an RV

It looks like a quaint cabin (in almost every way) but thanks to some sneaky architecture that’s just a disguise. Kelly Davis, the architect who created this faux-cabin at Canoe Bay Escape, is a visual trickster tiny-house 1

This “cabin” is only 400 square feet, which doesn’t sound like muchtiny-house2

It doesn’t look like most other RVs, but it fits the standard of the Park Model RV, which can be up to 400 square feet.tiny-house6

Not only is the cabin made of extremely high quality materials (featuring cedar lap siding, LED lighting, Energy Star appliances and much more), but you never know how small it is thanks to the brilliant design.tiny-house7

Compromises must be made when creating a tiny home. There’s no room for a full kitchen or bathroom, but one look at ESCAPE and I would completely forget about that.tiny-house8

The cabin/RV is settled at Canoe Bay Escape, surrounded by gorgeous views on all sides.tiny-house9

More and more people will follow in the footsteps of these incredible tiny homes, both saving their own money and the environment.tiny-house10

Although, ESCAPE in particular would actually run a person around $79,000, which is quite pricey for an RV.tiny-house11

But if you could live in this beautiful and small home, it would be worth it.tiny-house13
