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.

Wish I could see the floor plans of these homes.

I adore these homes. I had always talked about building something just like this when I retire. I have a lot in the mountains near my mom. This I could afford!!  Hope the POA is ready for this!! :)

People spend most of their time at their "oversized" jobs. What I mean is overworked americans are barely home. Why spend so much money on a home your never at. These aren't for everyone, but they should be in the real estate mix for would be buyers. If your an outdoors type person, then it's simply perfect.

The location of these little homes should be marked on each one.  I like the idea of going to a place like this for the weekend...or during the week with just my big dog...as my wife likes to stay in the city.  I just visited a 100 acre preserve in Brasil...with the owner...who sleeps there occassionally near a noisy waterfall and cooks his own food on a wood stove outside the cabin...awesome...and we took a bath in the waterfall area...this makes for a great trip...or overnight visit...quiet place to think, read, study, walk, take photos of nature...and enjoy God's land.  I love to pray...alone with the Lord...and I search these places out for this purpose...try it...you will never be the same again.

These homes are great. When people stop being so pretentious and learn that they don't need

3000 square feet and a new BMW in the driveway, they wont spend their lives posing for their

peers and working for a mortgage payment. Less is more.

I'm seeing ALOT of negativity here an no one is looking on the bright side. Sure it's small but look at the amount of money you would save per year in this house rather than in a regular sized home, hell even a single family home for that matter, not even a 1 bedroom apartment would save you this kind of money!

 

Everyone's worried about having BIG THIS AND BIG THAT! What ever happened to enjoying the simple things in life? I, myself am a man of simplicity. Also if you look closer at the worlds population you'd see having HUGE houses is just taking up space! 

 

Having a house like this could essentially eliminate alot of financial woes that the majority of our nation is having. Not sure how much a house like this would cost but I would think no more than $50K max.

 

If you want to have kids its a no brainer make a small addition to the house each time you have a kid OR who really uses their garage anymore for their cars? Not many take that space and make it into a couple extra rooms.

Looking at these is like looking at an oversized playhouse in the backyard.  This article would be much more interesting and informative if they had shown the insides

Never mind that most cities would never issue a building permit for any of these houses.  The mobile home/motor home industry has had 80 years of designing and learning how to pack more features into less space.  "built on a 7 X 10 trailer so it can be moved from place to place".  Yeah...that's called a mobile home.  Or a steel shipping container with dirt on the roof to help it rust out more quickly.  Are we assuming an outhouse with these outhouses?

No one is forcing anyone to living in these if they do not wish to.  I have an 1850 sq foot home and I never go into 2 of the bedrooms, seldom use the 1/2 bath, never use the dining room and since I started working 2 jobs, pretty much never use the basement.  I came from a smaller home (not Tiny) and it was perfect, but when I went to buy this was a "smaller" home on the market; perfect for a starter family, but I am single.  From what I have read, many apartments in new york are tiny and no one blames the left or any government.  I think for the right person, this would be perfect.
