A new development in tiny houses allows them to grow with you
Now tiny houses can grow as your family and lifestyle grow
Imagine living in a trendy tiny house somewhere - just you and the minimalist lifestyle, laid back with no worries. Now imagine getting married, having kids and getting a dog; or maybe getting a promotion at work and deciding to add on a game-room. The tiny house would easily become cramped and impractical, but not anymore. Now there is a new development in tiny houses that will allow the house to grow with the family.
Brian Gaudio, who used to work for Walt Disney Imagineering, is the founder of Module Housing - an incremental building startup based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Gaudio's idea for the house is that it will grow with the person (or family) over time, and a small house could easily become a mansion at the twist of a wrench. According to Module Housing’s website, the house will be able to change with "every new job, hobby, or member of the family. [The] houses are manufactured off-site, which means tight quality control and major reductions in build times...the house will be healthy, resource-conscious, and environmentally sustainable."
The house almost sounds too good to be true, but the company has already raised $1.2 million and have prototype houses in Pennsylvania. For anyone who's unsure about what to expect or how it works, Module Housing also has a reservation system that gives people an opportunity to test out the house and decide for themselves how awesome it is.
These houses could potentially be the future of houses, and there are a variety of options to choose from. Base homes (not including additions) start at $149,000 for a one bedroom, one bath 640 square feet home and go all the way up to $404,000 for a three bedroom, two bath 1,600 square feet home.
