Why Tiny Houses?

A brief overview of the tiny house movement

Tiny homes are more popular than ever before. This interest comes from the substantial industry growth and advocacy work over the past decade across North America and more recently worldwide. Many people wonder what value they offer and ask, why tiny houses?

The answer is simple.

As housing stock continues to lag behind demand and costs continue to rise, there is an increasing need for more diverse housing options to meet the needs of our communities, from young adults to retirees. That is where tiny homes come in as a sustainable, flexible, fill-in-the-gaps solution—whether on a permanent or movable foundation.
