What's The Big Deal With Tiny Houses?

After years of building McMansions, American home buyers appear to want to downsize, some of them, significantly so. Some are gravitating toward Tiny Houses – homes that are less than 500 square feet.  In fact, last year, Charlotte was the site of the first-ever Tiny House conference where folks learned about how living in a matchbox can significantly reduce their expenses and simplify their lives.
