Tiny House, Large Lifestyle!
Tiny homes are popping up across America, captivating people with their novel approach not only to housing, but to life. Once considered little more than a charming oddity, the tiny house movement continues to gain momentum among those who thirst for a simpler, "greener," more meaningful life in the face of society's "more is better" mindset.

They'll invite you in, show you around their cozy abodes, and share lessons they learned along the way.
