    It would be nice if the “industry” could come to terms with the names that are used to describe different types “housing”. Adopting size standards that define each class of housing unit could help the public understand the concepts.

    Defining industry unit-size standards would be a good start before the government steps in with “truth in advertising size-standards”.

    Start with “Micro” for the most compact unit and move up to “Tiny” and then end with “Small” to define the genre of compact / efficient-sized housing.

    I don’t know if it is my generation or just common sense, but if a housing unit is permanently attached to wheels that implies the unit is mobile and pulled by something. If it is pulled by a human, animal, or vehicle, then it is a “Trailer”. The term “Trailer” helps the consumer understand what is being offered and where the unit may be legally placed. Terms like; “Micro-trailer”, “Tiny-trailer”, and “Small-trailer” seem to be more honest descriptions. If it is “planted” on a “foundation”, then it becomes a; “Micro-house”, “Tiny-house”, or “Small-house”.

    In closing, it would be nice if the compact-dwelling / living movement could also get on the same page with terms like “Cabin” vs “Cottage” vs “House”. Are these terms being cooked up just to attract buyers because they evoke memories of good times from childhood. If so, that seems to descend to the same sales trick as the realtor telling the seller to bake chocolate-chip cookies in the house just before a potential buyer is scheduled to visit the property.

      Some clarification…

      A “House” is a generic term to describe just about any structure that serves as a home. This can range from rudimentary huts of nomadic tribes and the improvised shacks in shantytowns to complex, fixed structures of wood, brick, concrete or other materials containing plumbing, ventilation and electrical systems.

      So there’s a wide range of things that can be called a house and virtually anything can be called a home as that can be anything and any place that you dwell. The relevant point being that it serves as a dwelling that can be considered a home.

      It’s Cabins, Cottages, Modern, Farmhouse, Boat House, Tree House, Cob House, Earthship, etc. that refers to a specific type of house and/or style of appearance or architecture elements associated with that specific type of house and this also allows combinations for structures that evoke specific or multiple elements associated with the different types of houses.

      While a trailer is primarily considered a non-self propelled, wheeled structure, usually a box or platform, that is used in conjunction with a way to tow it to transport something from one location to another.

      This, however, leaves a distinction between the trailer and what may be on or in it, as well as still including distinction for other things that may also have wheels but are not considered trailers, such as a motor-homes, wagons, Truck Campers, etc.

      It’s Travel Trailers, a.k.a. Caravans, which extend the meaning to include the usage as a dwelling.

      While an RV specifically connotes that it’s a recreational vehicle that serves a temporary usage for things like camping and that encompasses both trailer based and motor based types. Thus providing a distinction of intended usage as well from what is associated with a house/home.

      However, in terms of Tiny Houses, the trailer primarily serves the function of a foundation and is still considered a separate and distinct part.

      This is emphasized by the point that it is possible to separate a Tiny House from the trailer and embed it into a traditional slab foundation instead and for the most part Tiny Houses employ the same construction methods associated with the construction of residential houses.

      Note, a foundation refers to just the lowest load-bearing part of a building and thus anything that serves that function can be considered a foundation, even if it’s not in the ground or above it and regardless of what material it is composed of or how it is constructed.

      It’s thus significant to note a Tiny House can be placed on any type of foundation and whether it floats, is embedded in the ground, rises above it, or lays on some other type of platform it is still considered a house because that is its intended function.

      While it remains that the alternative structures we now call Tiny Houses still need to be universally accepted legally and thus defined in terms everyone can accept before we can put forth any consistent interpretation on things like size classes.

      Clarification can indeed help the public better understand the variables involved but it mustn’t be forgotten that many people will still impose their own independent interpretation as much of this also falls within what people perceive and thus how they interpret this and pretty much any other given structure within the confines of their world view on such matters.

      While without legally defined parameters there can be no consistent basis to form even a general consensus that can’t change without notice.

      So in practical terms such clarification would serve more as a guide than an absolute. Especially, with a platform that allows such unprecedented diversity and range of creativity that proprietary terms may never fully encompass all that it offers and can mean to each individual…

      Serving more the purpose of helping to provide legal framework that can be used to regulate and establish universal standards that can help provide more consistent legal recourse for those it directly effects… But in the end, Tiny Houses, like any home can mean many different things to many different people.

    Great comment. Maybe this concept could start on this site.
    Thanks

    Main room looks like dated “popcorn” texture. One of the pictures shows where the rafters are on the drywall ceiling. Nice house but not a fan of laminate flooring (too many bad experiences from expansion/contraction issues).

    This is nice. Thanks for postings the smalls as well as the tinies.

    I think it is fab that you show-case small foundational homes.
    Looking forward to the new ‘ Small House Newsletter ‘.

    While I don’t consider this “tiny,” I’m still happy to see it. Many of the houses in my working-class Santa Barbara neighborhood are 850 to 1000 square feet. Some have been enlarged over time, but many remain much the same as when they were built (about 1915-1945). But to AVD’s point, there certainly is a wide variety in terms, and I doubt they will ever be standardized. I’ve never understood “cottage,” which to me means a cozy, modest dwelling, but apparently also refers to an esthetic style, which can show up in very large structures.

    I like the idea of having a separate site for small houses, simply because I am mainly interested in the tiniest ones, and I’m specifically looking for ideas for dwellings under 200 square feet. It is eye-opening how very much more one can fit in just 10 or 20 square feet.

      Having said that, many of the “homes” showcased on tinyhousetalk have aspects that can be translated into small homes. Oft times due to necessity people resort to creative ways to do things that would probably not be thought of in a larger abode. Incorporating space saving techniques of smaller houses gives your small house more space essentially. Whether it is for visual perceptions, or just a smarter way of having arranged storage etc., a small house owner can come out a winner by incorporating these smart techniques.
