LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — If you are looking to downsize or add on to your house — all while cutting costs — a tiny home on wheels may be the answer for you.

Your average home or apartment has a living loom, bedroom, bathroom, which seem to be basic necessities for a home.

But what about if you can get just that without the extra space and half the cost.

"It’s like an apartment except a lot cheaper,” said tiny homeowner Jenna Hall. “I got a full bathroom, a kitchen and I absolutely love it.”

Hall is 21 years old and already owns her first tiny home.

Tiny homes start at $60,000 depending on size... Read More

Lake Mead boaters react after Boulder Harbor ramp closed due to low water level

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — With Lake Mead's water level decreasing, officials have made the decision to shut down Boulder Harbor, one of their main boat launching ramps. Currently, the channel depth is about 2 and half feet deep which is considered too low to provide safe lake access.

Long time boaters feel like this is going to cause a major delay in the process, but know once they are out on the water, they need to take extra precaution.

"Getting through that channel, it' super low and narrow so you have to be super mindful," said boater, Sheldon Cooper.

"With the rocks popping up out of the water, you need to be cautious and take your time," added boater, Robert Ferguson. "The more they shut these ramps down, the more traffic there will be and the longer we will have to wait to launch a boat and get out there."... Read More
