Tiny House Villages: Next Big Thing?
According to researchers at Kansas State University, tiny house villages could soon be a big deal.
It makes sense, too. Tiny house villages are environmentally friendly, they promote a sense of community, they encourage healthy lifestyles and habits, and they're a safe and affordable housing option for the masses.
One man gave a cohesive review of Mt. Hood Tiny House Village in Oregon.
On May 19 and 20, 2016 I had the opportunity to spend a couple of days at Mt Hood V...
If you haven't heard of this new movement, it's called "living tiny." It's loosely based around the concept of Minimalism, and it's the new fad. The movement has even taken to the TV! New documentaries and TV shows are coming out about every year or so introducing the movement, and with that, bringing in more and more people each day to see what it's like living in a space that is usually less than 300 square feet! Is it a fad, though? Will it pass us by in a few years? Chances are slim, because this movement is growing rapidly, and it doesn't seem to be stopping.
With that said, "living tiny" isn't an easy task in some states, even in the great state of Utah! The movement hasn't fully reached our state, and as it seems, hasn't fully reached our banks, either. One of our team members went to a local bank to find out more about loans on pre-built tiny homes. They reported that there haven't been enough people asking for tiny house loans for them to even apply. Still, you could go build your own if you wanted.
So it begs the question: will we see tiny house villages in Utah anytime soon? With the rise of Utah's business economy and personal finance, there's a swell chance that enough people will move in from out of state to be a part of the Utah rising tide, and they'll bring either:
A. Their opinions of tiny homes
B. Their tiny homes
We will see how long it takes, won't we?
