Tiny houses have become a popular option for those who are adopting a simpler, minimalist lifestyle and paring down their possession. They offer opportunities to increase sustainability and reduce energy consumption. Significantly less material is needed for construction, and it’s often possible to use recyclable materials. Many are fitted with solar panels and compost toilets, further reducing their carbon footprint and water usage.
Wind River, located in Chatanooga, Tennessee, builds tiny homes “that can give people the freedom, both in time and money, to live authentically and with purpose. Sometimes you have to think tiny to live big…” They call themselves “tiny home alchemists” as they constantly push the boundaries of quality and innovation in a quest to build the best tiny home possible.
Their offering of tiny homes includes The Kubrick, The Silhouette, The Monocle, and The Mayflower, to name just a few.
Other manufacturers such as New Frontier, Escape Traveler, and Wheelhaus feature a variety of sizes, design, and mobility.
