    I just posted about this on my facebook page a few hours ago. I'd totally build my own and live in one

    Honestly - I think it's kind of perfect. You can haul some of them with trucks and just take your house with you where you go. You get rid of what you don't need in life, so that you have the space to do more of what you want in life. Instal some solar panels and you are ready to roll!

    Indeed. I don't think I could devote myself to that kind of living at this point in life, but in the future, I'd be all about it; as long as my outdoor surroundings are an appeal (mountains, water, wildlife etc.). It'd be perfect for a hermit in the woods.

    I want one in the worst way. But that guy seems to have disappeared, and all the links you go to when you search on his name are infested with popups. I was so excited when he revealed his tiny house because up until then, it had just been my fantasy to live in a gypsy vardo (for which you need a horse if you're going to do it right). Here's a beautiful vardo.

    I'm sure a tiny house could be just as charming.

    They're totally cute, but where do you keep your stuff? I mean, even if I pared it down to the bare basics, there would still not be room to keep ANYTHING. I guess I'm just not a minimalist, though I'm not a materialist, either.

    I get a kick out of these sorts of things too -- I have a relatively small but "normal" house, but I admit that I get intrigued by things like this.

    But like Tal says -- where would I put my stuff? I mean, I don't have a lot of stuff (except books, I guess), but if I'm reading this right, there's basically zero space for anything that's not part of the built-in structure. If I had it to do over again though, I might try to do something like that. I bet you could have some really crazy-low expenses, which really gives a lot of freedom.

    Yeah, I think you'd need a shed or something for whatever you do own... I mean, even pots and pans there's no room for...

    Those Nano houses look awesome. Where do I get one?
