Tiny house living has become a major draw to Gen X and Millennials born between 1965 and 1996. These folks are investing in new homes and building their families right now. Eschewing the traditions of the Baby Boomers, Gen X and Millennial individuals want to enhance their lives with experiences rather than by accumulating tangible items. They see that the older generations have been “held hostage” by belongings and don’t want to burden themselves with excess. In that same vein, today’s families also have fewer children than they did in the past. As such, smaller tiny homes have great appeal, because they free up their owners’ finances to let them live more!
As Baby Boomers downsize, items such as dining room sets with china closets and other large furniture pieces are going the way of the dodo bird. Newer generations no longer see the value in these items. Say goodbye to formal, sit-down dinners showcasing beautiful crystal and flatware. The tiny house movement encourages things like casual picnic potluck gatherings and BBQs as a means to connect with family and friends. If that sounds like the experience you want, you don’t need a big house!
Let’s take a look at the newest tiny homes from our talented architects and designers. These definitely keep square footage to a minimum, but don’t worry—our collection of tiny homes has plenty of family-sized options up to 1,000 square feet!
