Tiny homes have been pitched as a way to downsize your lifestyle, go on vacation, or even as a way to house the homeless, but they also offer a possible solution for pricey towns like Aspen and the Hamptons.

The high cost of real estate in resort communities—like Jackson Hole, Wyoming—means that while the need for jobs is plentiful, there’s often no place to house workers.A company called Stay Kondo aims to change that.

A single Kondo unit includes a downstairs area with bathroom, a pull-down dining table, a living room area with sofa, and a small kitchen.
