Looks JUST like the ones built across town from me.

Not too many real uses for em as far as I can tell.

Of the MANY tiny homes sold by my buddy's company, only a scant few owners end up keeping them more than a few months. They end up reselling almost immediately.
VERY few folks actually spend any real time in them. A lot of them are "playhouses" for adults, IDK.

Zoning laws suck, I know all about that!

THIS is the reason I can't look at auctions. Pretty cool.

These are made by students as a project, i'd wager. They sell at end of semester to fund materials for next years class.

Those yerts are worth some change.

I have never understood how those tiny houses built on a flatbed trailer are legal. Talk about top heavy.

I can see someone parking a tiny home on a piece of property that's not buildable, but a bus would certainly cost a lot less.

One is a commercially manufactured "tumbleweed". At least I think they're manufactured.

I wonder if the instructor has a new position because he allowed them to build something they couldn't sell because it is too tall?

a realtor in my neighborhood (he wants my house badly..).. says that he is finding the trend to be in families wanting that 1200-1400 sq ft house.. not too big not too small.. he has already sold homes to a couple families who tried tiny-housing (stationary) and didnt like it.. the realtors take was "whats the difference between a 'tiny house' and a single wide?"

Full time RVing he said is pretty strong..
