Are you tired of spending your weekends laying bricks in your big house and you can’t afford (or don’t want to) hire someone to clean it up? What if you chose to live in a tiny house? American YouTuber Jenna, the owner of one of these trendy houses, explains to us that it takes her only 20 minutes to do housework. In her videos, the girl discusses the advantages and disadvantages of living in a tiny house! She also gives some tips on how to get rid of excess and leave only the essentials…Here are Jenna’s tips and tricks to make life easier for you and your tiny house. Opening!

Problems and Solutions Jenna!

The peculiarity of tiny houses is that they have neither a veranda nor an entrance; in general, you enter directly into the living room.

Pay attention to current rules

We often remind you of this and have even dedicated a small file to tiny houses: before you install your little house on your land, you will need to check your municipality’s local urban plan. Each town hall is free…
