Tiny Homes have a Big Impact on Housing Markets
Given their small square footage, it’s almost ironic just how large of a shift tiny houses are bringing to real estate markets. In an effort to build reliable, affordable, sustainable housing following Hurricane Katrina in 2005, Katrina cottages began popping up. Cities like Portland, Ore. and Oakland, Calif. also embraced the big opportunity in small homes.
In the Greater Lansing area, T.A. Forsberg Inc. has been a vital component to implement the housing trend within the local market. With a rich history dating back three generations, Terry Forsberg was one of the pioneers of highway infrastructure. In his early days, Forsberg poured concrete, built roads and municipal sewer and water systems. Today, his grandson Brent Forsberg continues the tradition and passion for community-centric development. The company’s philosophy is to build environments around how people live in communities.
