Tiny homes are making a comeback, and not only because of the Great Recession. Tiny homes provide a simple, energy efficient, sustainable dwelling at an affordable cost.
Tiny homes challenge our notions of need as well as the minimum-size bylaws of most neighbourhoods.
There are many creative ways to live a tiny home lifestyle. However, we will have to change bylaws and planning departments, as well as the 'bigger is better' mentality before tiny homes become a realistic alternative.
We need a housing industry that is based on respect for nature, and can provide sustainable, affordable, mini-homes for the masses.
How many people, if they were offered a mini home alternative, would choose it over a conventional home complete with large footprint and a massive mortgage? Would you?
