Millennials have been embracing the minimalist lifestyle for a few years now, and that movement has sparked a national interest in tiny homes. These homes typically have square footage in the hundreds, rather than the thousands of square feet many traditional American homes have. As the tiny house movement has become more mainstream, manufacturers have widened the array of options that are available for new tiny home buyers. Tiny luxury homes are popping up on the market, featuring amenities that would find in much larger homes.
While I am very much partial to larger square footage, it’s fun to take a look at this tiny house trend. It’s amazing what can be accomplished within such a small space. Really clever designs here! Enjoy!
Tiny homes from Tiny Heirloom start from $15,000-$23,000 and go up depending on the features you choose to include in your custom home. The three couples behind Tiny Heirloom created the company to bridge the gap between luxury residential construction and tiny homes. They hope to provide their customers with a way to downsizing and upgrade at the same time!
