MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — More people seem to be more willing to downsize — they’re even ready to go “tiny.”

A new survey by the National Association of Home Builders shows more than half of Americans would consider living in a home that’s less than 600 square feet.

Sixty-three percent of millennials say they’d live in a tiny house.

According to a CNN report, those in the tiny house industry say the challenge to wider acceptance of tiny homes is procedural – things like consumer financing and zoning regulations are holding the industry back.

With design enhancements and changes in financing and zoning, even wider acceptance of tiny homes may be possible.

    Look at the RV industry – unless there is accessible water, electric, and sanitation services, living in the full time would be a challenge. Most people do not understand the logistics of home ownership.
