56% of Americans Say They’d Live in a Tiny Home  

Treehugger.com is an interesting website which was brought to my attention because of a Dec. 28 posting entitled, 2021 in Review: The Year in Tiny Living.” 

The article contains 10 stories about tiny homes that make great reading and may inspire you to consider building your own tiny home. The headline above was item #1.  Here’s an excerpt from it:

“…Oft-cited factors behind the appeal of tiny houses include efficiency, eco-friendliness, the minimalist lifestyle, the ability to downsize, with the top motive being affordability, as 65 percent of respondents indicate. Of those surveyed, 61 percent say they would spend $40,000 or less on a tiny home, compared to 16 percent who would spend more than $70,000. Seventy-nine percent say they would be able to outright buy or finance a tiny home, rather than a traditional starter home.”
