Daily Herald report

Visitors toured five historic and distinctive homes Sunday as part of the Arlington Heights Historical Society's annual House Walk, but it was the smallest and newest of the bunch that got much of the attention.

In addition to the architecturally significant homes open for tour participants, a "tiny home" -- all 250 square feet of it -- from Titan Home Builders was on display at the society's museum grounds for house walk participants to view.

"The idea is to pare down one's belongings," Titan representative Nick Streff told visitors.
