The tiny house boom in Seattle has been going on for more than a year now, but it has only really been on the map in the last two months, with construction of dozens of tiny houses.
They’re coming to town, people are buying them and people are building them.
The Seattle Times has been documenting the boom, and this month the city’s Department of Planning and Sustainability posted an interactive map that lets you see the progress and trends of tiny house construction in the city.
The new tiny house parks have come to town.
The tiny houses are coming to the tiny house park.
But this week, a new one popped up.
And it’s coming to Seattle.
Seattle’s new tiny houses have arrived at the same time the city has been getting ready for the annual Halloween festival, which is happening this weekend.
The parade, which runs Saturday through Sunday, will have hundreds of people on hand for the big parade on Sunday afternoon, according to the department.
The small-home boom in the Northwest is happening just as the city prepares for the biggest celebration in its history.
The annual Halloween parade will take place Saturday through Monday, Oct. 28 through Sunday evening.
This year’s event will be the first one in the nation to have a theme of Halloween.
There will be plenty of costume contests, lots of pumpkins, lots and lots of candy.
The big parade will feature a parade, floats, a carnival, musical performances, a costume contest and a fireworks display.
But the parade won’t be a parade of ghosts and goblins.
The city says the new small house parks are a welcome change to the Halloween festival.
“We’re excited about it and we’re thrilled that they’ve arrived here in Seattle,” said Christine Rousset, director of planning for the department of planning and sustainable development.
“I think that this year’s parade is going to be one of the biggest and most diverse ones that we’ve had.”
The city’s tiny house projects are still being put in place, and some of the projects have already begun to pop up in neighborhoods that haven’t seen them.
Some of those projects have been in the South Lake Urban District.
It’s home to the new home of Tiny House Seattle, a group of about 30 tiny house enthusiasts that’s been taking on the city and building them over the past year.
This is the first project that has been completed.
There are now about 100 small houses on the property.
There’s a large outdoor play area, a small kitchen and bathroom area and an upstairs bedroom.
And they’re all very, very clean.
Some have awnings.
They are actually just hanging on the side of the property, just like in the old times.
“They are a little bit like an art gallery, in a way,” said RousSet.
“It’s a little little bit more modern, but still very family-oriented.”
The small houses are meant to be a kind of sanctuary from the crowds that make the parade a bit of a circus.
“The small houses, they’re just very, little spaces where you can relax, you can rest,” said Rachel, one of Tiny Houses Seattle’s volunteers.
“You can just be inside.”
Rousset said it was important for the tiny houses to have something that was a bit more family-friendly than a traditional party.
The group is hoping that a little something different will attract people to the small houses.
“There’s a lot of people who really want to see this new community, who want to come in and try these small houses out,” she said.
“And I think it’s really important that we do that, so that people have a little space to enjoy and have a chance to feel a little part of this community.”
And the tiny homes are coming for Halloween, too.
“Every year they’re going to come and see the people that have been creating the tiny dwellings for Halloween and then go out and get some candy and maybe even eat some candy themselves,” Roussets said.
And the small house park is going for Halloween as well.
There is no specific date yet, but they’re hoping to get the park open for the next few weeks.
