I love the shipping container idea!

you can buy a piece of land from the county where you live.I intend to save money to buy a piece of land in the woods and build my own log cabin surrounded by evergreen trees.it's the right way to go since real estate is unaffordable for so many folks who want to own their own place.

These homes are no smaller than the homes in S. California

I currently live in an 800 sq. ft. house, and could probably live in something half that size if I didn't have two large dogs, and I really don't want them sleeping with me.....  ;>)  But basically, if I had a bathroom, a kitchen, a bedroom (possibly a loft), and a small living area, that would be fine with me.  I used to live in a 2800 sq. ft. house, and maintaining it and a large yard was a lot of work.

What I find funny is Many Americans working 6 days a week overtime and have these huge homes and are never home to live in them and enjoy life. So I ask why do it to yourself?
Humans often complicate life for themselves. Often a simpler life is a better way to go.
A big home commands a big electric, and utility bill. Also a big bill when it comes time for a new roof? new siding? new floors, walls. etc.. the list goes on. Why not work and live small and invest in some new startups? I think mainstream is way overrated and I would rather have small unique businesses to shop than huge corporate box stores any day.

I guess one could buy a few cheap sheds, link them together and come up with a cheap home.

I love these small homes!
They remind me of Levittown.
Also of the Sears Craftsman Homes.

Wow. I'm having trouble getting over how judgmental everyone is being here. The houses are cute. Are they for everyone? No. Are large houses for everyone? No. To each their own. Live and let live. Good grief!

When I was a child, the average American home was about 1,000 square feet.

That was average.

Now most jurisdictions wont let me build anything that small.

My hometown does not allow a home smaller than 1200 SF.  I find it offensive that a town makes you own a home larger than you need because it is infested with snobs and busybodies.  They should regulate quality, not quantity.  I'd love to build a micro home, I prefer spending my time out of doors anyway, but I'm just not allowed to do so where I live.

i always worked 2 or 3 jobs as did my wife .it's time to get rid of larger is not better,just more to take care of.small is the way we r looking.have 4 houses and by the time you pay taxes,fool with insurance and deal with less than perfert renter ,head ache in its self, we have located a already build house with showe or solar posible and since it is mobile there are no taxes.my daughter has 10 acres with electric and hook up if i want. i am disabile and wife has about 2 years to retire. we are going to sell every thing in virginia and move south to north carolina. does any one want to buy house in country with stream and extra lot, or one close to wal-mart and element ary school?if we sold our house we could live very comfortable in have less taxes,less headache over rentersand not have all this stuff that don't mean nothing! either way i am not taking any thing with me when i die. small for us and no headachs !!!!

With so much bush and trees around those poor wild animals will come under much stress from hunters and Gun-rights enthusiasts.

Wow there are some hateful ignorant people in the world (I'm talking to you Bizbug59 and ILOVEcoal, sketts, etc.) I can live in my reasonably sized and reasonably priced home while you idiots pay for stuff you think you need. And while your credit card debt gets out of control, don't blame Obama (he's pretty easy to blame for all your problems, must be nice to have a scapegoat for EVERY LAST THING you don't like). Clearly you all are so insecure that you must make your illogical opinions heard. So scream your idiocracy at the top of your lungs (sorry if most of us stop listening). Sorry if the false boom times of mini malls and mcmansions is on its way our; sorry for you. I on the other hand could not be more pleased. Especially because you people get worked up so easily. ha.

If you google the name of the owner you may be able to see the inside of these homes. I googled Sandra Foster Victorian Cottage and her website came up with pictures of the interior. My condo is only 887 square feet, but I don't have on of these awesome views.

These houses are cute and for a single woman like myself would be perfect. Unfortunately where I live, the zoning laws wouldn't allow you to build one that small. Even the mobile home communities in my county only allow them in certain areas.

Been SCREAMING for tiny homes for DECADES.   I'm now in my late 50s, and have been renting  apartments since my early 20s.    Who the hell wants a 30 year mortgage on a big-**** house when they're single?   Smaller is less expensive in EVERY way, including having to upkeep, heat, furnish, etc.   Out of necessity, they've been building tiny homes in Japan for YEARS.    NOT everyone is Married with a bunch of kids.   I'd LOVE to own my own home.    Do you know how many hundreds of thousands I've shelled out for rent over the years?   And if you want to talk about putting Americans back to work.    Imagine what these would do for the construction industry.   They might be tiny, but they still need septic systems, plumbing, electrical & everything else that goes into building a 'full-scale' home.
