The tiny house movement is steadily gaining momentum, in part due to the media attention given by several television shows – but also because it is a smart economic alternative to paying the costs of larger homes, which many young people cannot afford today.

Colorado Springs has recently been dubbed the “tiny house capital of the United States,” in part because it is home to the Tumbleweed Tiny House Co., the largest manufacturer of tiny houses in the country. The company also held the Tiny House Jamboree expo last year and plans to host it again this August. However, there are many cities contending to be the tiny house capital, including Seattle, Austin, and Asheville, North Carolina.

Tiny Houses are generally 500 square feet or less, compared to the standard minimum house size of 1,500 square feet, and many of these small homes are on wheels and mobile. The homes appeal to those looking for both a cheap and ultra-simple lifestyle.
