Tiny Home Evolution

Tiny homes are beginning to evolve! What was once known as a 300-square-foot trendy living space has now evolved into a 600-square-foot mid-sized home that owners can be proud of. Neighborhoods such as the one mentioned in this article are being built around modern tiny-home designs and creating unique communities that allow families to hurdle their inability to afford a standard home. We hope to bring this same attainable living opportunity in our future expansions to the Tembo Homes line, beginning soon in Eaton Rapids. Click here to read the article.
