Despite the recent rule changes,Vancouver housing prices remain high-forcing many aspiring home-buyers to get creative in their approach to home ownership. One emerging option is the tiny house movement-the notion of living in portable houses that are no more than 500 square feet in size. The trouble with this option is finding legal places to set up these homes, as most municipal bylaws fail to reflect this growing demand.
That’s something the B.C. Tiny House Collective is hoping to fix by educating local governments on the merits of-and demand for-tiny houses. The collective’s argument is that these are a great, environmentally-friendly and affordable option for homeowners willing to live a more simplistic lifestyle.
What do you think? Is the tiny house movement something local municipalities should explore to make housing more accessible?
