There is a huge trend towards downsizing and building tiny houses, people looking for their first home or others that are tired of huge mortgage payments are opting for a tiny house solution. The tiny house has the advantage of low cost living (in most cases no mortgage or rent) and the ability to move to a new location if there is a job transfer or you are growing tired of your current location.
The downside to a tiny home is the small footprint, you will need to downsize everything in your life so if it is not necessary then it needs to go, there will be lots of compromising!
The item that takes up the most space is furniture but you will need seating options and perhaps an extra bed for guests, usually a large pull out couch is not going to work. That is where the hammock comes into play they make an excellent option for chairs by using a hammock chair or a regular hammock for an extra bed or additional seating, ideally a non-spreader bar hammock would be perfect because they will take up less space.
