A tiny home development, Tiny Digs Lakeshore, is debuting in Muskegon. Owner Pam Westra says it was inspired by a similar operation her family built in Portland, Oregon, in 2016. “Tiny house hotels were kind of popping up worldwide at that point in time and have kind of grown exponentially since then,” Westra says.
Her husband owns the construction company that is building the 10 tiny homes off-site and transporting them to the location in Muskegon’s Lakeside district. It’s across from a shoreline bike path and near a bike rental facility and boat launch. Westra expects the project to be fully completed in early 2024. “It’s quite a newer concept for the Midwest,” she says. “We think it’s going to be a great concept for Muskegon.”
