This video struck me hilarious. I've been charmed by the dreamy tiny house craze, so here's the thread to talk tiny.
As someone who has, a lot - itâ€™s personality, perhaps. Iâ€™m unattached and have a lesser than typical drive to change that - and absolutely none to have kids. And yet, I have an almost insatiable bandwidth for activity and donâ€™t spend much time in my place of residence. Iâ€™m someone who might just walk around the city for hours and miles if thereâ€™s nothing going on, just to relax. And when I am at home, Iâ€™m writing or checking in with my long-distance friends - stuff that takes up very little space. I do like home to be pretty, but donâ€™t start missing space until we get down to sizes too small for a single desk chair. Or really wear anything that absolutely needs room to stretch. I have eased up on the square footage minimalism because I finally found my limit in the last few years and am also rather burned out for other reasons, but my latest place (as of today, actually) is still under 1000ft^2 for sure, and I'm thinking nothing of it.I think the whole concept is ridiculous. Why would anyone want to live in a place less tha 1200 square feet? Completely impractical.

My biggest dream house is a hobbit hole that looks tiny on the outside but actually goes waaaaaay down into the ground to survive the holocost hobbit style.I love the idea of being Gandalf in a hobbit hole more than I already do
But I dont know if the house and I could survive long term expose to each other.
Seriously I'm really tall.
Unfortunately, there's no such thing as a four season RV. Some are close but not quite, particularly relative to cold winters with snow and below freezing temps. Tiny houses can be insulated.I could not live in a tiny house, especially with the idea of moving it frequently. Some of the nicer, larger ones are inching up to the $100k area. So why not buy a really nice RV or trailer and truck? Campgrounds and RV parks have all the hookups and sewage emptying needs because everyplace has different zoning laws and bullshit. I understand the space requirements - we have a 32 ft. boat we take on the big lakes. There are amazing products for small living spaces. But composting toilets, lack of laundry facilities or refrigeration, that's poor planning.
