Oh, to be HOA free! People are finding all sorts of creative ways to put a roof over their heads. Sometimes that means a sacrifice of space for the savings of money. Which means less need for high-stress and high-income employment. Or it’s an opportunity to pay off school loan debt. Or spend less of your retirement savings on empty space that eats utilities, creates taxes, insurance, maintenance and needs constant cleaning. And yet for others it’s a way to stay out of an HOA or condo association.
It’s a housing movement that is catching on and growing by leaps and bounds. Could it be because we are learning that life is about living not about servicing debt and empty spaces? Or it might just be the brutal experience of living in a nightmare condo association or HOA that has shocked us into seeking a place that can be moved if our surroundings start to feel like we are trapped.
Whatever the reason the creativity seems endless in our quest for uncontrolled shelter. This one even offers a roof top deck!
