Colorado Springs is home to Tumble Weed Tiny House Co., which produces about 125 tiny houses a year out of their production facility. Justin Hall, HR manager for Tumbleweed Tiny House Co., said that tiny houses are mimicking a culture desire to get back to simplicity and quality of life.

If you’ve seen popular shows like “Tiny House Hungers” or “Tiny House, Big Living” on HGTV, you’re likely aware of this growing trend. Builders also say tiny house popularity is being fueled as the real estate market recovers across the country.
