What's small and huge at the same time? The tiny home trend! Whole communities of them are popping up. Friends who want to stay close are building them in clusters and they're even being used as vacation rentals. Jared Cotter has the top three must-visit spots in America.
1. Bestie Row in Austin, Texas
You've probably joked with your buddies about living in a compound together. Well, after 20 years of friendship these four couples actually did just that. With the help of Austin-based architect Matt Garcia they decided to build a group of tiny abodes. This cluster is made up of energy efficient 350 square foot cabins costing around $40,000 each -- making a community of best friends! This one was designed by Matt Garcia. We have more cool pics of Bestie Row HERE!
2. Sprout Tiny Homes in Salida, Colorado
About three hours southwest of Denver is the largest tiny home development. It is being built on 19 acres and there are 200 total units -- 140 of those will be for long-term workforce attainable housing, and another 60 of those will be for short-term overnight rentals. The idea is to grow the housing options and economy of Salida one tiny house at a time.
This company wants to let people take a break from their busy everyday lives and starting at $99 a night you can stay in a home that's around 160 to 200 square feet, wake up and enjoy nature. The company is only in Boston and New York, but just closed on $15 million in funding to expand.
