Will the so-called “tiny house” trend come to New Jersey? One state lawmaker says it is an idea whose time has come.
These structures are a minimalist’s dream: 500 square feet or less. They are obviously much cheaper to heat and air condition and furnish. They can be constructed on a much smaller lot, adding to the cost savings.
State Sen. Raymond Lesniak, D-Union, says he’ll sponsor legislation to seek federal or private funding to build tiny houses in New Jersey.
