City needs to pave the way for small housing option
If Tiny House Hunters, the compact-sized spin-off of HGTV's hit show House Hunters, is anything to go by, tiny homes may be coming to a neighbourhood near you. That is, if the neighbourhoods near you are in the United States.
Up north, however, the question of whether tiny houses will be fully embraced by Calgarians is up for debate.
With their limited size – usually around 400 sq. ft. or less – tiny houses often come at a fraction of the price of their traditional counterparts. Though prices vary from builder to builder, Kijiji listings for tiny homes for sale in the Calgary area range from about $17,000 to $39,000.
