A tiny home on 16th Street is set to hit the market. The house is 16 feet across, 1,400 square feet across two floors, and fully wheelchair accessible across the first floor.

Developers Tim Sick and Sal Zambito designed the house to allow independent living for someone with a disability or an older family who struggles with a multi-floor home.

The house will hit the market at $300,000, but is located in an area that enjoys less than $500 per year in property taxes.

Sick says with many people in the city paying $1,200-$2,000 per month in rent, the $1,430 monthly mortgage rate will be affordable for whoever buys the tiny home.

While the house is one of a kind on the west side right now, the developers hope to build up to a dozen more in the next three years.
