Topic : Tiny House Movement
by Tim Knauss, December 14, 2014
SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- A Syracuse nonprofit group has proposed building townhouses for the homeless that would cost less than $14,000 each. Why so cheap? In part, it's because the houses would be tiny. Each house would be 12 feet wide and 14 feet long. That's about the size of a backyard trampoline, or a garden shed. ...
The houses are expected to sell for $70,000 to $85,000, Seymour said.
One way or another, the tiny house movement, which began roughly a decade ago, seems bound for Syracuse.
