Tiny homes at 2021 Maricopa County Home & Garden Show in Phoenix

While some people are increasing the size of their homes, others are opting to live more simply or even become nomads. That explains the continued interest in tiny homes, which allow people to streamline their lives.

The Maricopa County Home and Garden Show will highlight at least a dozen tiny homes of different styles and sizes when it runs April 30-May 2 at WestWorld of Scottsdale. Visitors can tour mini “mansions,” container homes and tiny homes with porches and other amenities.

Tiny houses tend to be 400 square feet or less, although some are larger. They’ve been on display at past home and garden shows, but this is the first time the Scottsdale location will feature a tiny home showcase.
