A new generation of Nova Scotian entrepreneurs are providing an alternative to homebuyers not interested in purchasing a traditional house.

“I think there is a real market for Tiny Houses because there are so many different applications for them,” said Matthew Willox, owner of Howling Dog Construction.

“They can be totally customized to a client’s needs and wants. They can be totally self-contained. They are perfect for renting out as short or long term accommodation. I think they will be around for while as people are still finding new uses for them.”
