For some reason, this is the topic that has been on my mind through most of the weekend. 

I have seen many videos, posts and conversations regarding the tiny house lifestyle. As far as I recall there are none in Airdrie city limits but it would be interesting to see some.innspiration house This house is clearly too small to live in but tiny houses are becoming more of a thing nowadays

The closest I've come to see a tiny house in real life is the one along Stoney Trail Westbound from a company advertising these builds. 

Those who live in these small houses say it works for them. They’re cheaper and you’re not surrounded by a lot of stuff.

It’s not for everyone though. Right now, a tiny house just wouldn’t work with my family of four but who knows, maybe someday in the future, my wife and I will decide to retire in a small house on a rural area in Rocky View or in the mountains somewhere.

What do you think? Do you like the idea of a tiny house or, if you live in one currently, what do you like about it?
