Tiny housing industry now targeting new audience with luxury homes

By Krista Hostetler. CREATED Jul 24, 2014

The tiny house movement seems to be catching on. A lot of people are opting out of living large and trading down for much smaller, much more affordable homes.

Now, the tiny housing industry is targeting a new audience.

A Wyoming man is offering luxurious tiny homes. The humble abodes are only 400-square-feet, but they come with impressive bathrooms, hardwood flooring and a fully-functioning (albeit tiny) kitchen.

"A small stove, a fridge/freezer, and an 18-inch dishwasher and you're good to go. You don't need a massive kitchen," said Jamie Mackay, owner of Wheelhaus.

However, the prices aren't so small.

The homes run between $90,000 and $100,000.

If you're not sure this tiny living is for you, you can try before you buy. You can stay in one of the homes for a few nights, then make your decision.
