A new report by CBC News says that many millennials are "thinking small for affordable housing." Do you think you could handle living in a tiny house? Well, if you're not sure, then you might like Pete Davis' business called Getaway. As the article describes, it is "a project that rents out tiny houses in the woods around Boston, Mass., for people seeking a retreat, or for people who want to test if tiny house living could work for them on a more permanent basis."

Tiny houses are becoming a growing industry throughout both the U.S. and Canada, as they ease affordability and speak to a millennial desire to return to simplicity and make sound financial decisions. And buying your own tiny house isn't the only option out there. CBC News says that "another small housing idea that's gaining traction in the U.S. is the idea of expanding dorm-style living into post-university adulthood." The article outlines a recent project in New York called "Commonspace," which aligns with "the idea of living in a tiny apartment that is part of an active community" and offers "300-square-foot micro-units with larger shared areas like kitchens and relaxation areas."
