A tiny house revolution is brewing in Colorado and North Carolina. Rebels are voting and building for quality over quantity. The small house movement is a revolution in how we think about housing, our needs, the environment, and where happiness really resides. Many are living small to live better. With beaches, colleges, and mountains North Carolina is a capital of building and living small. North Carolina is only behind Colorado in Google tiny house searches?
Not hard to see why North Carolinians want smaller homes:
- The median house price in North Carolina is $166,000.
- Prices increased 6% in the last year in the Tar Heel state.
- Zillow predicts another 3.1% rise in 2018.
- One in five North Carolinians will be 65 or older soon.
- Technology drenched millennials want new housing ideas.
New Art Category
Living small? Then you know how important it is to get out of town. Since art is what dominates our vacation time we added a new Tiny House category. Brilliant idea to install Dale Chihuly’s glass art at the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, North Carolina.
So brilliant we loaded up and headed out. “We” for this trip was Elizabeth Martin (mom) and Caroline Smith (sister).
