As we look ahead to 2018 it seems like a good time to also look back at the tiny house movement, at our business, and of course provide a 2018 wish list!
Full Moon started as a happy accident when we were asked to build a tiny house - several years and many builds and wonderful clients later we are proud of what we have done and excited for what is to come. One thing that has been very interesting is how tiny houses and their uses have and continue to evolve. In the early days almost all our inquiries ( and we get hundreds for each eventual client) were about living in them full time. Whether people were looking to downsize for financial reasons, wanting to live with less, or for the potential to travel, nearly everyone was looking at these as a permanent home.
In just a few years it has been fascinating to see how this has shifted - and as the idea of tiny houses has become more mainstream we are now fielding way more inquiries about tiny houses as weekend or vacation homes, as an extra space for visitors, as home offices, mobile saunas, art studios, or remote cabins that can be towed home at the end of the season. It has really opened up a client base that didn't exist at first. The joy of towing a fully functioning cabin in to the lake, (or to the seashore, or anywhere else!) with no zoning issues, no permits, and no extra taxes,is pretty appealing!
As for the live-ins - zoning is starting to change and tiny house communities are going to start sprouting up sooner than people think. We love working with people to design and build their dream tiny house!
Here are a few retrospective photos followed by our 2018 wish list pictures!
