If you’re house hunting in Colorado, the obstacle of low inventory has likely come up. Chances are you’ve expanded your search to include all kinds of properties – traditional sales, REO properties, short-sales, and more. While new home construction continues throughout the state, in Colorado Springs, construction is shifting from “bigger is better” to something smaller. That’s right – tiny houses.

According to a recent article in the Colorado Spring Gazette, the city is quickly becoming the epicenter of the national movement that encourages finding freedom through the smaller price tags that come with these smaller homes.

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.  "It's a natural fit that Colorado Springs becomes the tiny house capital of America,” he said.


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.
