Have any of you ever been in one? There’s something so magnetizing about these…but I wonder if they’re really workable longterm. 100 square feet!

Nickel tour? Far too much. Try penny tour. I was crackin’ up most of the way through this ingenious, claustrophic, awesomely beautifully efficient little house. If you love the outdoors, why do you want to stay indoors all the time?

It is our intention to buy one of these and explore the country spending a good amount of time in each location. we stop at. However, I don't think I could handle 100 sf for 2 adults and a dog. I think the least I could handle on a long term basis is 350 square feet.

  2. I actually liked the tiny house except it had wheels. I don’t like wheels on my houses. I dont’t like it when poeple drive houses around on the highways. People, Leave your houses where they are! Anyway, I thought the house itself was ingenous. Where would the doggie beds go? I suppose you could only small doggies,one large doggie…?
