The Luxury 40, by Hummingbird TINY Housing, was on display on Saturday at the Tiny House Show on Hilton Head Island. The home is is 8.5-feet wide by 40-feet long, but it packs a lot into it's 306-square-feet. Here are just a few of its features.

The inaugural Tiny House Show was held on Saturday on Hilton Head Island. The two-day event, which was rescheduled for this weekend after being postponed by Hurricane Irma in early September, is being presented by New South Living at Shelter Cove Community Park.

New South Living, Driftwood Homes USA, a tiny-house company in Bluffton, and other builders showed off a dozen tiny homes a housing style that is one of the hottest trends in the home market today.

The tiny homes include full bathrooms, appliances, queen-size beds, living rooms, as well as other custom features and, in the case of The Luxury -- which was dubbed a “tiny mansion” by one woman taking a tour -- an 84-inch projection screen TV, and 8-foot soaker tub, and and chandelier.

In addition to educating the public about the small, but full-featured homes, Ben Kennedy, a partner in New South Homes, said a purpose of this event is to “show local officials other ways of creating affordable housing.”

The Tiny House Show will continue on Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Shelter Cove Community Park, 39 Shelter Cove Lane. Tickets are $20. Children under 12 are free. A portion of the proceeds from ticket sales will go to DragonBoat of Beaufort County, a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping cancer patients and survivors living in the area.
