It's becoming a popular trend in America. Many people are now starting to invest in tiny homes - whether its for living or traveling. Maximus Extreme Living Solutions build high quality, custom homes.
Maximus Extreme Living Solutions owner and CEO Stew MacInnes said he has been a real estate broker in Utah since 1991. During his career, he eventually learned about tiny homes and became fascinated by the concept and construction of them.
MacInnes decided to followed his newly found interest and started Maximus Extreme Living Solutions in Ogden in December 2011. He began with building small units as alternatives to "man camps" in mining and oil fields, but now constructs tiny customized homes. The majority of the homes he builds are around 8 feet wide, 20 feet long and 14 feet high — a total 160-square feet.
