A Tiny Home to Call Your Own by Patricia Foreman, Andy Lee

You can live in an attractive, aesthetically appealing. upscale house AND you can do it so that it is quality built, architecturally beautiful, highly marketable and profitable. Small is beautiful and functional in housing. Smaller scale homes can be more livable, cozy, homey, enjoyable, low maintenance, easy to clean.

Uses for Tiny Houses include:
• Anyone who wants less space to take care of in exchange for more time, freedom and money.
• For an elderly parent, student or return-to-the-nest kid to have an independent place of their own, yet be close by.
• Your personal "get away" space, home office, professional work space, writer's or artist's studio or rental.
• As a starter house desgined for future expansion as the family grows and money becomes available.
• Student Rental.
• That Boomerang kid that keeps returning to your roost.
• Nanny or care taker house.
• Honeymoon house.
• Extra private guest room
• Bed and breakfast expansion
• Rental income
• Home office or professional space
• Workshop for hobbies, pottery, forage, quilting, crafts
• Home Gym
• Man cave
• Away space

People Who Might be Interested in a Tiny Home Include:
• Downsizers
• Empty nesters
• Pre-retirement & retirees
• Sandwich generation
• Semi-assisted living individuals
• Parents, grandparents, extended family
• Newlyweds
• Couples who make better neighbors than housemates
• Single parents—with or without kids
• Fixed incomers
• Hermit-prone individuals

Tiny and small homes can be more affordable and socially responsible than the current trend of "MacMansionization" that is chewing up America. Some of them can be built on existing lots without requiring new land purchase.

Impress neighbors with style and freedom rather than with large-scale impersonally built square footage. Live so that your home supports and enables your lifestyle.
