I can understand living in a tiny house in, say, Tokyo, where the building lots are extremely small and extremely expensive. But why on earth would you only build a 200 square foot house on a 5-acre plot. I could build that Utah "house" myself for under $5000 but why would I pay nearly 200,000 for that much property and then only spend $5000 on the actual house? It doesn’t make any sense, unless there are some local building codes that keep you from building anything bigger. Even a vacation cabin should be at least twice that big.

Approaching 1k per sq. ft. Wow, just wow...I guess they are born every minute.

Those places are so small you would have to go out side to change your mind! I have an ice fishing shack bigger than those things, I fish in it but by gawd I wouldn't want to live in it!!

In America, a few people own as many as ten luxury homes each; 40% of the people own no homes, and the rest (what's left of the middle class) are slaves who work for and answer to the boss-man to make their monthly mortgage payments. The land was given to us all, like the air and the water, but greedy evil humans have corrupted this and now you must pay ransom to some landlord for it. No other animal must pay for a place to sleep every night of their existence on the earth, only the "smart" human being.

For a couple hundred k more, I'd sell them a 3100 sq ft house on 10 acres!
For as small as these homes are, some aren't bigger than an average bedroom, the prices seem extremely high.

But where would I put my grand piano?  I mean, for $250k-350K, should't I have a bit more room?
Ah well, my boyhood home in Redwood City, CA, my parents bought for $12000 was just sold this past April, 2014 for One Million, Three Hundred Thousand Dollars.  It was 2 BRs, 1BA built in the 1920's.  Oh, yes, it also had a 1-car garage.

Having always felt that the whole "celebrity home" deal was a big waste of valuable time and money to just show off... I find her home a bit extreme the other way.

I do agree that this country is steeped in to much excess and we need to consider living with less and within our means. So, if this is within her means.. then I say live and let live.

If every average joe lived on cash, within our means, I bet tons of people would be in homes of less than say.. 1200 square feet?

I raised 3 children happily within a 900 square foot home, one bath, one tv, no cable, no land line phone, and often no car!  And I paid cash for everything pretty much.

I would love to know how others "got by".

"To each his own", but thanks no thanks, why would I pay that kind of money to live in a shed?

The American home now represents downsizing due to economy and the need for higher profits in real estate market for banks and investment firms. This is a commercial brought to you by AIG and various others selling and banking on derivative bundles.

This is nuts. Way to expensive. Lets bring Oregon back to the people who truly love it

Not only would I not live in such a house, but the prices are absolutely way out of whack. Who in their right mind would pay close to $500,000.00 for a 378 square foot house, I don't care where it is located or on how many acres it is on or how rich you are. This is just ridiculous. (Paid less than $90K for my main home of 2,000 + Sq. feet on almost an acre of land in Houston TX (1990)). Go ahead and pay those celebrity prices and see where you stand when it is time to retire (just sayin).

They look like the new 0bamacare clinics.

Had me a fishing shack in Minnesota on park lake with more comfort than these mower sheds.

Section 8 housing is better than living in a storage shed plus if your an Obama voting Democrap leech you can bilk the taxpayers...

In theory building a tiny  portable home is a great way to save money, a 20 k home on a small 20k lot can be a large savigns over a lifetime or great for retirement however if you plan it as a mobile home, and plan to park live at rv camp style lots the cost of hauling the home around, maintenance and lot fees will almost certainly negate anything you would have saved and likely end up costing you more than if you had just  purchased a medium sized older home in most cities, and it will be worth far less when you go to selling it ,as used these things rarely bring in more than 10 k, and you're really lucky to get that as people looking to buy a portable home will mostly want a newer RV to help  ensure they are able to legally park when they travel without having building codes preventing them from getting into some camps
