Demand for tiny homes rises in Southern Oregon

Oregon Tech holds symposium

KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. (AP) - Residents in southern Oregon are learning how to build tiny homes that are cost-effective and don't come at the expense of quality of life.

The Herald and News reports (http://bit.ly/2mAvEqi) that Oregon Tech held its first Tiny House Symposium Saturday to teach Klamath Falls residents and others about building tiny homes.

The need for small homes at low costs has risen in the city and elsewhere.

Andrew Duncan of Southern Oregon Tiny Homes says residents need to be creative when building 200-square-foot homes. He says making sure the homes are weather resistant is a key component of building but that the process can take up to about a year for someone balancing a full-time job.

The discussion around tiny homes comes as the Oregon Legislature works to address laws surrounding the structures.
