    This is a rather troublesome trend. The seller is the SECOND owner of this tiny house. I have been noticing that there seem to be many tiny houses either for sale or rent.

    Do people go into a tiny house unrealistically? Are the designs they chose to build inherently uncomfortable for full time living? What does this say for the future of tiny houses?

    Mary, I’ve noticed the same thing- and it seems to happen a LOT with the THs from the TV show. Almost as if the show was one big advertisement for certain builders…

    This is a nice TH, tho. I could live in it fairly easily once kiddo goes away to college.

      I don’t think the problem is the size of the house. Many people live in studio apartments just fine. I think it’s the utilities/land and the paycheck. Even without a mortgage, few people can support themselves on freelance work-at-home. At least not for very long. And if you try to work a traditional job, you have to find land with a utility hookup and you run into local laws. It’s not impossible, but the proportion of people who can pull it off is pretty small. This house can’t be more than three years old, and yet the second owner needs to sell because of a “job change.” Huh? Why can’t he just tow his tiny house to his new job? Oh, right… no land.

      And whatever happened to the starry-eyed (unmarried) Millenial couple in the video? Guess they didn’t last long in the house either. Tiny homes are cute, but in a practical sense, they are RV’s and single-wides and need to be thought of as such.

    Good point. Someone should contact all the original owners (whenever a tiny house is re-sold) and ask the details of WHY they sell their house. Are they finding their tiny home TOO TINY? poorly laid out? would they prefer another design? would they rather have an apartment or foundation house? poorly insulated? have no land to permanently put it on? have no way to tow it regularly?. Maybe some of these homes are simply an advertisement for the builder, who knows. Remember however that there are many THOW owners who do keep their homes and live in them. namaste’, rachel

    A lot of these houses have huge kitchens and minimal main floor lounging space, which might tend to be annoying after a while. The other problem I see with this place is having the ladder to the studio block the door when in use. People probably come up with very different designs after living in a tiny house for a while compared to what they thought they’d like when designing. Some little detail you barely gave a thought to can become a major PITA when dealt with on a daily basis.

    I’ll bet the main issue is not enough closet space – especially for clothes. The second, related, thing FOR SURE is that these things are WAY too small for more than one person. I live in a 250sf cottage by myself, and though it’s very well laid out, (I submitted a video to this website twice but they don’t seem to want to post it for some reason), it could be a few feet deeper. It’s rough 10’x25′. These THOW’s are 8′ wide. I can’t imagine losing those 2′ from what I have. I’ve been inside a few of these THOW’s, and, for me at least, 8′ just doesn’t cut it. I think 12′ is absolute minimum, and even then, I still think two people in a space like this would be crazy. BUT… it’s perfect for one, if you can get the builders to start using pop-outs. Personally, I’m thinking of designing one that pops out the entire length of the house – except one end where the bathroom is and the other where the kitchen is. Split right down the middle, and have it slide out at least 3′ in each direction, giving you a solid 14′ wide for the living area. And make it 28′ long, or as long as you can make these things and still have them on wheels and under the legal maximum for the property tax angle and all that, (400sf, I believe). My thing is not to move the thing all the time; it’s to find a place to park it very long term, if not forever. Yet still meet the code issues. With 14’x28′ you’re at 384′, which is the size of most Park Model RV’s. Definitely enough for two people, but anything less just doesn’t cut it.

    I agree that many of the designs I’ve seen have totally inadequate storage space. Even a radical downsizing will still leave the average modern American with more “stuff” than these smaller houses can accomodate.

    Also, I agree about the lack of real living space in so many THOWs. A large bathroom and kitchen leave almost nowhere to just sit and relax to read or watch TV or surf the net or have a couple of friends over . Those THOWs look more like campers than permanent dwellings.

    I personally love the Escape cabins. I stayed in one and could live comfortably in it fulltime. Talk about beauty and function in one perfect package! I also toured their Traveler XL. The XL is 8′ wide, beautifully finished but I don’t think I could live fulltime in it. As a vacation RV, it’s perfect though. Perhaps if it was longer and offered more relaxing space I could adjust to the 8′ width. However, as much as I lust after one of the Escape cabins, they are too expensive for my budget. Darn it anyway! I continue to research builders and work on my own design. Next summer is my target.

    I wonder if ppl have a problem finding a place to put them. I’ve heard that many States aren’t zoned for tiny houses. Even Portland, Oregon “tolerates them”. Maybe lots to park then aren’t that easy to find and then the rent for the lot, watery feed, sewage hookups if you want that. Also,
    States must want taxes and if they aren’t legal in the first place..I think it could present a problem parking them.
    Just my uneducated guesses for so many selling them.

  • Patricia Chang September 22, 2016, 3:28 am

    Tiny Houses are fine for younger, nimble people. They are great for those who live in them off-grid for conservation reasons. But, once you start adding granite counter tops (which I hate anyway); ladders instead of storage stair cases, big appliances, and fancy showers, I fail to see the point. Anything over $35,000 is way too much for such tiny houses. The zoning problems are also taxing to deal with and can cause big problems. You need your own land or friends or family who will allow you to park your house there. I saw one design that started with a storage barn for an older lady. It was adorable and had a wonderful, roofed, outdoor living space. It was so charming. I could definitely live there. She did own her land.

    Oxide, remeber ya don’t need to use hook ups… :)

      I admit I’m ignorant here. I understand you can use a composting or incinerating toilet, but where do you get your fresh water?
