A smaller home means smaller maintenance projects. With few exceptions, even big projects are more manageable with a smaller house. When it's time to paint the exterior of a house would you prefer to paint two-story 4,000 sq/ft monster house with vaulted ceilings or a single-story 1,000 sq/ft little house?
When it comes to maintenance the only drawback to a tiny house is that you can't let things slide. A small house has fewer things to distract the eye, so every little defect becomes apparent.
