What Do You Think About The Tiny House Movement?


When I was out in Idaho a couple years ago, I saw something similar to this. My nephew said it's a sheepherder's wagon.

Too cool, too cool, too cool, I like it but it is a bit too small for me.

I agree. It would be fun to rent one for a night or two out in the wilderness.

That is really nice, if I didn't plan to move much it would be great but that bus will only get about 5 miles to the gallon, that is a little rich for my blood. Some camp grounds won't let a bus like that in to camp around here.

What Do You Think About The Tiny House Movement?


I tried out the "tiny house" thing. Only we called it "the barracks."

Today, my workshop is bigger than the space some of these people call home. I don't think I could do it right now.

Maybe someday, if my goal of retiring on a sailboat comes to be.

I think it would be awesome to live on a boat too! LOL

I lived on a boat for a couple years, well kinda, it was an aircraft carrier, that was some of the most restful sleep ever.

It had the population of a small town. The only thing tiny on it was probably the bunks. LOL

Three bunks high, a tarp stretched with rope over an aluminum frame and a 2 inch mattress, but with the ship rolling and pitching, it was sure some good sleeping, not to mention chasing planes some days 18 hours will make you sleep good. LOL

The tools I would need to build the tiny house wouldn't fit in the house. Maybe a tiny house and a big garage would work.
