Deciding on the best housing situation for you can be tough, especially when thinking about downsizing or "going tiny." Downsizing can be an excellent option for individuals and families looking to live a bit more simply; however, there are many other benefits to living in a small home.
Whether you live in a traditional-style home or a net-zero home, living in a smaller space can be better for the environment. Smaller homes don't require as much energy as larger homes, which means that by using less energy to heat and cool your home, you're significantly reducing your carbon footprint and helping the environment. Our net-zero CABNs are even more beneficial to the environment because they are smaller than traditional homes and produce and store all the energy you need.
Smaller homes are often much cheaper than larger homes– the price of a CABN may be the same or less than a downpayment on a traditional house. You save money upfront when choosing to live in a smaller home, and utility bills will decrease because it takes less energy to power a smaller space. With CABNs, utility bills are significantly reduced because of our powerful solar panels and energy storage, making it an excellent option for those searching for more financial freedom.
When living in a smaller space, you must be intentional about what you choose to bring into it and what you decide to leave behind. Reducing your consumption comes with downsizing or living in a smaller space, but it can be hard to let go of particular possessions. Having fewer things around the house means less clutter, less mess, and less cleaning.
With less time spent cleaning and maintaining a large home and the money you've saved on house expenses and utility bills, you will have more time and money to enjoy your hobbies, explore your passions, and spend time with friends and family.
Choosing to live in a smaller home or downsizing from your current house is challenging because you need a home that will suit your lifestyle. So if you are interested in reducing your carbon footprint, more financial freedom, less clutter and cleaning, and more time spent enjoying the things you love, it is worth considering how we at CABN can help you achieve that.
