It's not for everyone. Most of these "tiny houses" are 400-1000 sq ft. And people can't handle that. Mine is about 200 sq ft. We make do!

No it is not..... 1000 sq feet is larger than a single wide.
most of the tiny homes i have seen are built on some sort of a trailer shorter than 30 feet long.

with a maximum inside width of 7.5 feet if you use 2x3s that's closer to 220 sq feet, that's less than a 40 foot shipping container.

1000 sq feet is not a "tiny" house.
Its a small house, but its still more than plenty for two or three people.

I swear once I was watching that show and that's what they said. I know for sure most of them were 400sq ft on that particular episode, and I was surprised that some of the "tiny" houses they were showing were bigger than single wide trailers. Although that's probably because they had a second floor loft and was calculating that into the square footage.

Typical Paris apartments were 200-300sf and selling for 800,000+ Euros as of 2014. Make Skoolie life look real good.

I dont get it much either, HOWEVER, some of the ingenuity the tiny house people employ to make the most out of space is definitely useful. AND the fact they see this rat race called the "american dream" is a big joke, and a waste of ones life. life is for living, not perpetually consuming and getting deeper into debt.

My generation is too focused on making a new path, forgetting all the mistakes of the past. The fact my generation is full of socialists scares the **** out of me.

Let them vote for Bernie. All I can tell you is I won't be paying for it. We'll see how they feel the burn.
