Some people are fond of shopping stuffs every day until one day they would realize they have collected a lot of unnecessary things which are all piled up in the corner, cramped inside the bins or under their bed. Thus, SF Globe looked for ways to help homeowners consider simple living – away from junks and knick-knacks you don’t need after all.

Tiny living is a principle adopted by Chris Heininge who came from a family of skilled designers, artists and craftsman. For the record, his family has built and designed more than 100 houses in Arizona, Washington and Oregon. Most of their projects offer simple living experience which caught remarkable attention from old and new homebuyers.

Chris’ craftsmanship was influenced by the traditions and cultures of India, Macau, Hong Kong and Japan where he served as a Christian Missionary in his teenage years. He was greatly inspired of the beautiful and simple life of the Japanese people who do not overcrowd their homes with material objects.

In 1999, when Chris settled in Aurora, Oregon, he started to build a series of tiny houses for people who are interested to the idea of “tiny living” rather than staying in “McMansions” homes. Tiny homes became popular because they are cheaper to maintain and cost less to build.

Let’s take a tour around in one of Chris’ efficient tiny homes.

Simple and low-cost view of the house from the outside:

Inside is a spacious living room where you may welcome few guests.

The tiny house also features a shower and a full-size Jacuzzi.

The house costs at about $70,000 only including the new appliances installed inside. See, that is roughly one-fourth of the minimum price of a residential home in Oregon. Moreover, before you moved in you have to decide if you would be willing to toss away some belongings to be able to stay into this snugly home. Indeed, this tiny mobile home would generally fit your definition of a simple living experience.
