When it comes to getting water into your new property, you are spoilt for choice. The first option would be to source your water from the mains water line in your street, however, depending on your accessibility, this can become pricy very quickly.
You could also source your water from a well, or plug in your home via a standard RV water hook-up which takes its water from an underground water source. If you live in an area with a lot of rainfall, don’t forget to consider installing a water tank somewhere on the property, you could end up saving a lot on your water bills.

The nature of their size results in drastically reduced utility bills. Heating a tiny home can have wonderful benefits for your bank account with monthly bills lingering around the fifteen to thirty dollar mark.
How you choose to heat your home is up to you, but you can be sure your bills are going to be a fraction of the price compared with your ‘big house’ competitors.
