Recently people have been mentioning "Tiny Homes" as a possible solution for those still in need of a home after Hurricane Michael.

Titan Factory Direct Panama City invited locals to look at "tiny homes" Saturday as part of its grand opening.

Managers say tiny homes have helped people in other areas that faced natural disasters. Mark Mitchell with Tiny by Titan said the homes are park model RVs which can be made to work with permitting requirements in any area of the Panhandle.

People at the event said the models are more spacious than they expected and want to see more housing options like this in the area.

"It's not just a niche that's seen on various tv networks. It is an opportunity weather for an investor, or a home owner, or somebody in need of a mother-in-law quarters to fill a housing need," said Tiny by Titan Professional Housing Consultant Mark Mitchell.

Mitchell went on to say they want people to experience the tiny homes for themselves to get a better understanding of how they can help displaced storm victims.
