There has been much publicity lately about so called tiny houses which are generally about 250 square feet and can be purchased for about $50000. These houses are not for everyone but I think they are a great idea. They are energy efficient, and get people into the housing market who would not otherwise be eligible to participate. They may be perfect for single individuals or couples.
As of now community planning and zoning requirements to not allow for houses this small and they are being sited in mobile home parks or other unrestricted areas. I have never lived in a residence this small but people all over the world do. Our communities should give it a try. Written by Paul Dribin
