Houses are reportedly being built smaller than they have been in recent years, probably because they are more affordable to manage. This downsizing trend has generated an interesting extreme; and while it doesn’t seem to have hit the Midland area just yet, it’s picking up speed in other states and around the world. What is this extreme trend, you ask?

For the brave of heart, these tiny dwellings can certainly function as full-time homes. Manufacturers offer them with full (albeit limited) kitchens, bathrooms complete with showers, and sleeping areas that accommodate up to a queen sized bed.
For those that prefer their castles a bit larger, you can use a tiny house as an addition to your current home. One can easily be placed in your back yard for guests, studio or office space, your recent college graduate who is moving back home, or just for as a mini vacation spot when you need a little “me time”.

Tiny houses are often cheaper to build than a mother-in-law suite above the garage or an addition to an existing home; and they are easily moved if you decide to sell.

Could you live in a tiny house?
