The growing tiny house movement became a lot more accessible for interested parties as 84 Lumber, a major national retailer of building materials and services, announced the launch of a series of tiny house models. Per a CNBC article by Jenny Xie:  

The article added that the tiny houses are available in flexible packages.

From the article:

84 Lumber is out to make tiny house living as accessible as possible, whether the customer is a serious DIY-er or somehow who just wants a fast, easy turnkey micro home.

The company, which already offers building packages for structures like barns and garages, spent the last half year developing the line of four tiny house models, all of which are under 200 square feet and are now available to order, with an estimated turnaround time of about 8 to 10 weeks for a fully outfitted home.

The tiny house trend spans across all facets of housing.

Most recently, tiny houses were in the news when Los Angeles officials began taking tiny houses away from the homeless that Elvis Summers built using a GoFundMe campaign last spring. LA officials deemed the structures a safety hazard.

Professional big-mountain extreme skier Lexi DuPont even jumped on the tiny-house bandwagon and owns 500-square-foot geodesic dome —complete with wooden shingles, a cow skull and a location next to hot springs.
