It does seem these days that tiny houses are popping up all over the place, from the internet to tiny house vacations, television shows, and magazine articles.

And it looks as though tiny houses are here to stay, and quite honestly they have been around for longer than most of us realize. Did you know tiny homes have been around for thousands of years? From traditional yurts and ger nomadic homes, teepees, tiny log cabins, beach shacks or cob cottages, people from around the world have been living in small houses since the beginning of time. We just didn't always call them tiny houses, they were just considered to be home. With that said today more than ever you can find a wide variety of tiny house designs, plans, styles, and sizes, from modern to rustic, to tiny houses on wheels and prefabricated tiny homes, there have never been as many small house choices than there are today, and that's good news. Good news because it means that home ownership is possible no matter what your income is, with so many tiny houses out there. Hopefully, it means that one day everyone will have a home. Wouldn't that be nice?
