If you have any doubt about the growth of the tiny-house movement, talk to John Kernohan. He and his wife, Fin, run annual tiny-house events in Florida and Georgia. Since 2016, they’ve seen dramatic increases in both overall attendance and participation by tiny-home owners.
Almost 100 tiny structures — including converted school buses — were on display at the Georgia Tiny House Festival at the Atlanta Motor Speedway in March, John Kernohan said. That’s almost double what it was last year, and five times the number that showed up in 2016. The Florida Tiny House Festival, which is held in St. Augustine in November, is even bigger. Last year, nearly 60,000 people attended to take a close look at the 116 tiny homes on display, he said.
Here’s a sampling of what visitors saw at the recent Georgia Tiny House Festival.
