Moving To Tiny House Movement
There is a major trouble facing all of us within the tiny house community and greater than likely we will certainly all have to face its unsightly head when making the transition to small living. I’m describing the zoning laws and building ordinance that are likely to be existing across every county in the country. As a tiny house owner in St. Augustine, FL my partner and I were no exception and also we were forced to consider, along with the many advantages of tiny living, all the repercussions also. Yes, the consequences … These included questions like, “Now that we reside in a tiny house do we have to reside in a rural setup?” “Will we be able to have the needed energies?” “Can we still lie fairly close to the coastline and otherwise, why?” “If we don’t purchase our very own land can we survive on a buddy’s apartment?” “Are backyards OK, can we put our house there?” On and on these inquiries came as well as regrettably they had to be thought about in order to successfully make the transition to tiny living. However why do we should consider such questions and is it appropriate that we must look at this workout?
Because joining the tiny house activity almost 2 years ago I’ve to seen countless books, eCourses, and the like being sold on everything from tiny house plans to ways to navigate the jungle of metropolitan zoning/building codes. There is absolutely nothing naturally wrong with this information as well as it absolutely offers an objective in bringing some visibility into the activity as well as its advantages, yet I think it fails at really addressing the basic trouble that mostly all small houser’s will regrettably experience. This is certainly the zoning/building code problem. In this post I will try to clearly expose this problem wherefore it genuinely is from a philosophical point of view as well as offer an unbelievably simple option that could benefit all of us.
Why am I interesteded in this you ask? I’m worried because I count on the charm of living just as well as have personal experience to attest to its marvels. I wish to spread out the delight of little living to anybody as well as every person that is interested and also in order to doing this we must remove all the barriers that already existing for people that intend to make the transition. Up until this is done the tiny house suggestion will certainly remain to be practiced primarily in the backwoods of society and also considereded something just “weirdos” resort to. Apart from these concerns, and also MOST notably, I really feel that this issue of legislations complexing or even prohibiting individuals from staying in peaceful ways that just so happen to drop outside of the norm are morally wrong and against the idea of flexibility entirely. The only factor I’m spending my time composing this short article is considering that I still feel people as a whole have an interest as well as desire to behave ethically, as well as accept as well as concur that success as well as health is positively associated to the quantity flexibility a culture preserves.
In order to reveal the trouble as well as its philosophical inconsistencies I would certainly like to build a hypothetical instance where an alien from a far galaxy travels down-to-earth for the function of discovering just how we as human beings live, organize our societies, communicate with each other.
