More Big News About Austin’s Tiny Homes

We first wrote about Austin’s connection with the tiny house movement back in May 2017 because we loved the fact that a state which is famous the world over for having everything bigger was so wholeheartedly embracing the idea of small, simple, minimalist living spaces.

 

It seems that Austin’s love affair with the tiny house movement wasn’t just a “flash in the pan” flight of fancy, and our desire for diminutive, affordable, and luxurious housing solutions has leapt forward from the design table to the reality of our streets.

 

New Tiny Homes in Austin

In the last few days, reservations for lots have begun to be taken for Constellation ATX – a brand new tiny home community scheduled to open this spring in South Austin. Constellation ATX will host 85 lots for tiny homes, creating a community of exceptionally well-priced abodes which will start from around $55,000. Wow.

 

Tiny homes measure less than 400 square feet, making them around the same size as the average studio apartment. One of the key attractions of the tiny house movement is the perfecting a small and simple living space which uses intelligent design to give the homeowner the features you would find in a modern, full-sized home.

 

The tiny homes in Constellation ATX are to be built by Austin-based manufacturer, Kasita, and Colorado-based, Sprout Tiny Homes. Houses will come fully furnished and feature contemporary design elements which create clever little places to live.
