PINK HILL, N.C. -- Tiny and simple.

On Friday, hundreds of people stopped by the second annual TinyHouseNC Street Festival to learn more about downsizing their lives.

16 tiny homes are on display ranging from 100 to 400 square feet with costs varying depending on size and amenities.

Festival-goers got a chance to go inside each tiny home to get an idea of what styles and amenities could best fit their needs.

Organizers say the goal is to help people understand alternative ways of living.

For some prospective tiny home owners, it's all about low cost, efficiency and enjoying life.

"Simplifying your life, simplifying the economics of your life, mobility, a lot more freedom. It's not about the upkeep of a big house at this point in my life,” said Rochelle Brandon, a prospective tiny home owner. “It's more about going places, spending time with people, that type of thing."

If you want to learn more about tiny living, the TinyHouseNC Street Festival will continue Saturday and Sunday starting at 10 a.m.
