Living small: Tiny home craze has come to East Idaho

By RYAN SUPPE Post RegisterMay 28, 2019

The homes are small, but the business is big.

Tiny homes are a growing trend in the U.S., and they’ve come to Idaho. Businesses are selling them, and local governments are making changes to city codes to accommodate the little domiciles.

What is a tiny home?

Don’t overthink it. It’s a very small house, typically less than 500 square feet. It’s small enough to be an apartment, but it’s not — it’s a stand-alone structure. And many of them are portable. (Try asking your landlord if you can pick up and move your apartment somewhere else — you won’t get your security deposit back.)
