Some say it’s not the size that matters, but how you use it.
That’s the philosophy behind micro homes, which are tiny, ultra efficiently designed homes that can range from 100 to 800 square feet.
These homes can be built relatively quickly and inexpensively when compared to a traditional full-sized houses.
They can be towed by truck to different locations, and can be hooked up with to water, power, and sewage or can go off the grid.
That’s Ally Blake with Hummingbird Micro Homes, they’re building a micro home village just outside of Terrace.
Micro homes are often mentioned as one of the answers to addressing issues of homelessness, housing affordability, and availability.
She also says because micro homes are transportable, they can be moved as need arises, or if a person moves because of work.
Blake says the cost of ownership with micro homes is often the price of a down payment for a traditional house.
Bluegrass Meadows is open for tours in July and people will start moving in by August.
