Small is big

After two decades when everything seemed to be getting bigger, SUVs like the Sequoia and Expedition ruled the roads and size of an average home grew 25%, it seems that small is making a comeback.

Companies like the Tumbleweed Tiny House Company are feeding this less is more attitude selling houses that range from just 65 to 837 square feet. And while these homes are inexpensive, they're not cheap, using premium materials, top of the line appliances and state-of-the-art energy systems.

They're not for everyone.

In fact, I'm sure that the average home will continue to get larger and most people will still want bigger cars and trucks. But this is just another instance where there's a business opportunity in doing the opposite of what everyone else is doing.
