Dear Brevard resident,

If you own property, with an existing house, in the Brevard city limits, have you considered the advantages of building a “tiny house” on your lot? Why would you want to?

A “tiny house” will provide:

·         A reliable source of income from rentals

·         An “extra” detached house for offices, hobbies, guests and general fun

·         Affordable rental housing for Brevard’s growing needs (particularly among low wage job holders in the service industries, single moms, single men etc.).

If this sounds interesting so far, let me show you how relatively easy the building process in Brevard can be and how the monthly income might work for you. You will then be able to determine if it is to your advantage to “build tiny” in Brevard. I think in many cases it will be!
