One drawback... less room for your stuff, which may not be a drawback for everyone. After all, how much greener would the world be with less stuff to throw away eventually?

Ethan Waldman jokes that building and moving into his 200-square-foot house was his mid-midlife crisis. He was just 26 years old and working a desk job he hated when he decided to take a month-long sabbatical to ride his bike across California. During that time he stayed in a number of tiny houses he found through a popular couch-surfing website.
After going back to work, he started seriously thinking about how he could get away from his job, start his own business and be happier. To do that, he needed to reduce his living expenses. He was living in a three-bedroom, three-story house with two other people. Moving into a small place would mean lower rent. But moving into a smaller place would mean he would have to own less stuff, too. “I wasn’t that old at the time and had only been living on my own since college for seven years, but I was amazed at how much stuff I accumulated,” Waldman says.
That’s when the tiny-house concept made sense to him. He wouldn’t need any permits if he built his home on a trailer. He could park it on his cousin’s land and not pay property taxes. And with only about $100 a month in bills, he’d be able to live for very little money.
