When it comes to building a dream home in Door County at least one local architect says her customers are thinking smaller. Virge Temme of Sturgeon Bay specializes in environmentally responsible and energy efficient homes. She’s finding more people just want to keep things simpler.
All of this comes as a National Association of Home Builders survey finds that more than half of Americans would consider living in a home that’s 600-square feet or less. Temme says she’s known some people that own such tiny houses as places to get away from it all. She adds few would consider living in such small houses permanently.
