FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT)- Tiny homes came to Parkview Field this weekend. Brightpoint showcased the homes to show visitors what life could be like on a smaller scale.
Fort Wayne currently has zoning laws about homes under 950 square feet, but Brightpoint staff members said they're looking for a way to bring the efficient way of living to the summit city.
They said tiny homes are perfect for veterans, the homeless, or anyone who wants to downsize.
The homes feature one to two beds, a small kitchen, living area, and a bathroom.
Jennie Renner of Brightpoint said people use the homes for many different reasons.
"I think as people reevaluate their values and what's important, they start to see that maybe having a lot of house isn't where they want to be," Renner said.
The tiny homes range in price starting at around $30,000.
