For a state that prides itself on its bigness, Texas is in the midst of a tiny trend.
Tiny homes are being built in lieu of sprawling houses. A project to house the homeless in small, one-bedroom homes has taken root in Austin. Retirees are opting for tiny bungalows rather than oversize homes.
The shift toward smaller living has been percolating for years across the USA, even spawning its own reality TV show (FYI’s Tiny House Nation), as more Americans trade in square footage for simpler living. In Texas, where things are often and proudly pronounced to be bigger, it’s been particularly interesting to witness.
