Tiny houses are on the rise as many people are choosing to downsize and change their lifestyles.
The idea behind tiny house communities is straightforward, it is about bringing together tiny houses in one place to create communities that share skills, time, support and other resources.
Tiny houses come in different designs – some people have tiny homes that are mobile, and others are permanent. Tiny homes offer savings when it comes to home ownership and offer less space to be filled with clutter thus the rise of these small residences.
