The idea of a small home is a relatively recent one in terms of fashion, but it’s something that a lot of people are returning to in recent years as they try to turn away from the excesses of modern life and go back to a simpler time. If you are thinking of creating your own small home, whether in a caravan, boat, shack, or whatever else, there are a few main things that you will need to think about. Let’s take a look at what they are and discuss how you might be able to make it work for you.
Finding A Water Solution
One of the main things that you will need to think about is water. You can’t get far in life without water, after all, so it’s absolutely the first essential you need to make sure you have thought about. If you are keen on doing this right, you’ll have to have both a source of water that is reliable, as well as a way to store it. On a boat this is easy enough – an integral water tank that you simply fill up at CRT tap points along the waterfront. In a caravan again you will need a tank of some kind, and to find some water that is reliably drinkable.
Heating & Cooking
The next issue is how you are going to heat your home, and how you are going to cook your food. These are put together here because they are very often achieved with the same solution, which is to say that you need to have some gas installed. Normally this is achieved with caravan calor gas, which you can hook up to whatever system you need, whether it is heating or an oven or whatever else. You definitely need to have this, but make sure you get a gas fitter to do it properly and safely.
The matter of storage is one that people often struggle with quite a lot when they have a small home, but if you are clever about it you might be able to figure out a few interesting ways to store whatever you want wherever you want. Things like having stairs that are also drawers, and storing items under the bed – all those little solutions add up to make for a much more interesting and useful home, and it’s amazing how much it can really help you out.
To Move Or Not To Move
Finally, there is the question of whether you want to be able to move around in your home or not. For a caravan or a boat, that is obviously easy enough, but you need to make sure the vehicle is safe to do so. And if you don’t need to be able to move, then you might just be looking at a shack or shed or something similar. It’s up to you, but it’s a question you really need to think about if you want to be happy in your small home.
