While building a small home is generally less complicated than planning and constructing a large home, it can be more difficult to find appropriately-sized and cost-effective land. Since most tiny homeowners are advocates of eco-friendly lifestyles and prefer more rural locations, the Adirondacks are perfect for tiny home construction.
In fact, if you’re looking to go “off grid” and spend time in nature, there is truly no better place than the Adirondacks. Abundant in natural beauty, the Adirondack Park provides tiny homeowners with access to more than 6 million acres of woodland, rocks, rivers, lakes and mountains to explore. Enjoy hiking, hunting, fishing and kayaking in the warmer months, and skiing, snowshoeing and snowmobiling in winter.
The Adirondack Mountains offer the seclusion that tiny homeowners crave, yet they are close enough to amenities, such as shopping, restaurants and hospitals, to keep small home dwellers from going stir crazy. Many of Adirondack Mt. Land’s properties are located just a short drive from resort towns, ski areas and other modern conveniences.
The cost of land is also reasonable. One of the appeals of the tiny house movement is the financial savings, but if the land you place it on is expensive, it defeats the purpose. There are literally hundreds of acres of Adirondack land for sale, and Adirondack Mt. Land frequently has property listings for less than $50,000. While waterfront property generally starts at $150,000, a piece of Adirondack land with a view is a cost-effective alternative. With elevated building sites that provide panoramic views of the surrounding mountains and water, these parcels of land can be purchased for a third of the price, yet are equally peaceful and picturesque.
Thanks to the tiny house movement, more homeowners are seeing the benefits of downsizing. If reducing your carbon footprint and saving money appeals to you, consider purchasing land in the Adirondacks for your tiny house.
