If you've ever wondered what it would be like to live in a 'tiny house,' you can find out Wednesday night at Jay-K Lumber on Seneca Turnpike in New Hartford.

Bear Creek Tiny Houses will be holding an open house on the phenomenon at 5:00 for the public to explore one of their models.

Owner Bill Rockhill says from young couples to empty nesters, tiny houses are becoming a real housing solution because they aren't just sheds or R-V's.

"The thing about tiny houses is it's home," Rockhill said. "It's not a camper, it's not an RV, we build them very heavily made. They're super insulated, they're very warm, we don't cut corners, you'll find that our tiny houses are going to last a lot longer than any regular vinyl RV."

The houses are fully functional with plumbing(yes that means shower and a loo), electricity, tons of storage, top of the line windows and even solar panels.

Rockhill added that each tiny house takes about 8-12 weeks to produce, and Bear Creek Tiny Houses does all the construction, including all the cabinet work.

Here's a look at the tiny house that is on display at Jay-K Lumber:
