Seniors Are Buying Tiny Homes To Live Off-Grid In Their Golden Years

The tiny house movement is not just for the young, seniors are also joining the new trend of investing in smaller spaces so they can live their golden years off the grid. In fact, a 2015 survey found that 30% of tiny home residents were seniors, making them a big part of the movement.
Tiny house living is about selling the majority of your stuff, keeping what matters, and moving into a home the size of the average American living room. For a senior citizen, it beats living in an RV or nursing home.
Bette Presley, 72, is one example of a senior who decided to forgo an RV for a tiny house when she made the choice to downsize her home and go mobile. Her 166-square-foot cabin comes with all the comforts of a conventional home. It’s built on wheels so she can live life on the road, and is completely off the grid thanks to solar panels.

Presley isn’t alone in thinking less is more. Dani is a disabled widow who bought a tiny house after attending a workshop. She customized her tiny home to make it more accessible. It has a special wheelchair ramp that leads to her extra-wide front door and a chair lift with a harness that helps her onto the bed.
But not all seniors are moving into tiny home for retirement purposes, some of them have an entrepreneurial spirit. The Sausage Nonnas are three Italian grannies who travel in tiny houses to cook meals for an event called Sausage Sundays.

Shirley Louiselle wanted to downsize her home because she felt she didn’t need all the space. The 240-square-foot tiny home her grandson built for her became the inspiration for Next Door House, a company that specializes in building senior-friendly homes.
