Tiny houses are a trend that has rapidly grown in popularity, and those who are attracted to the idea of minimalist lifestyle find the lack of upkeep, lower taxes, small environmental footprint, and other benefits of tiny houses very appealing.
With that said, though, there a number of drawbacks to tiny houses as well. Before you purchase and move into one of these small structures, be sure to consider these four reasons why you may not want to live in a tiny house.

This list comes from a video by Becky’s Homestead. Here’s what she came up with:
1. Difficulty Selling Your Home
Tiny houses are a very niche part of the real estate market, meaning that when it comes time to sell your home, you may have some degree of difficulty.
Selling a home is typically a process that can take quite some time. If you are selling a tiny house, expect it to take even longer.
2. Not Enough Room for all Your Stuff
While many people like the idea of living in a tiny house, they don’t like the idea of having a tiny amount of storage space.
Living in a tiny house will likely mean that you have to give up a lot of the things you own, and this is something important to keep in mind.
3. Less Room for Company
A tiny house may be enough room for you and whoever you live with, but that doesn’t mean you will have enough room for guests.
If you choose to buy a tiny house, entertaining company at your home may no longer be possible.
4. Zoning Laws
You may be surprised to learn that many towns have zoning laws in place that include rules about minimum sizes for dwellings, and these laws can present a major hassle if you are trying to build a tiny house.
