Several months ago I wrote a couple of posts about new trends in housing. I focused on Accessory Dwelling Units, The Med Cottage, and the Tiny House, all twists on small, often mobile, freestanding dwelling units. I continue to be intrigued with this trend. There’s something very appealing about minimal, jewel box homes and certainly something to be said for simplifying once the kids are grown and retirement is on the horizon. Acceptance of little dwelling units might still be in its infancy, but it's easy to see the application of a small house model to the aging Boomer market.
When I wrote the earlier blog posts, I received a number of comments and questions about both the interior floor plans and exterior designs of tiny homes. I recently came across a short PBS video entitled Living Large: A look inside the tiny house movement. It's a wonderful glimpse into the tiny house, the people who live in them, and the varied architectural styles and layouts that are being built today. I think it’s a piece worth watching.
