The tiny homes are built using similar specifications as a traditional home, except they are on wheels, and much smaller! By using 2×4 construction, or a metal frame, they are able to create that cozy feeling on a mobile base, giving customers, both urbanites and nomads, endless options to create their dream home. Complete with high-end appliances and fully customizable layouts, the tiny home trend has taken off in major hotspots like Vancouver for its multitude of options. Whether you want to get off the grid but bring all the comforts of home with you, or want to make city-living more affordable, tiny homes were born out of necessity and aren’t going anywhere as real estate prices continue to climb.
“Each year, we strive to be at the forefront of innovation and trends in the home and garden market and this year is no different,” said Tyson Kidd, show manager for Marketplace Events, producers of the BC Home + Garden Show. “We’re thrilled to bring the tiny home trend to the BC Home + Garden Show for the first time to give attendees a chance to explore this movement up close.”
