the tiny house movement sounds really good right about now

I grew up in Japan and lived there until about a year ago. my parents taught English to young students. the apartments were tiny, didn't even have kitchens or stoves, we had electric skillets hanging on the wall that we cooked on our table with. I moved back to the US when my mom got sick and the size of just a simple one bedroom is huge! those 300 sqft tiny houses on trailers look so good to me right about now....in the apartment im renting I honestly stick to my bedroom, it's uncomfortable in the rest of the place.

We lived in 700 sqft for 6 years.


I would do it again. Just not with small children.

It just seems like a bunch of rich assholes who think it's cute to spend a ton of money on tiny sheds because it's fun to play poor. 

So obviously, I'm not a fan of it. LOL

from what I've seen its people who can't afford how expensive houses are and build a tiny house that can be put anywhere. or people who just want a small footprint.

Every time I realize I have to clean this house, I wish it was tiny.  LOL

Perhaps it's regional. All the ones I've seen the people are ridiculously smug and spend insane amounts of money hipsterizing their sheds. 

People live in small houses (and even actual sheds sometimes) where I'm from because they're poor, not because they think it's a trendy. LOL

LOL, I agree that it seems like a bunch of wealthy people that are wanting to be hip, hipsters, or kids of weathy people.  

I look forward to downsizing but 900sf is my minimum and I want a foundation and plumbing.

My county doesn't even allow tiny houses.  They like to get money from property taxes, LOL
