    This is a great idea , making use of existing space and affordable housing for people. Because they are smaller houses, I dont think existing infra structure , water, sewer gas and electricity would need upgrading, Part of the idea of tiny houses is making use of resourses we already have. The big issue i would think is political , like zoning issues and big developers who still want to build large 2 story fancy shacks .

    Having the GUTS to try is 90% of the project. He has the vision and the willingness to attack the housing crisis from angles long overdue. Like any project, it’s time to shoot the engineer (Bureaucrat) and get the job done. We spend resources and time which is the killer for the aged. The seniors have no time to wait they need it NOW and without aggressive people going at permitting there will be nothing done in time.
    Taking in recycled Park Model and single wide trailers for rehab and creating an apprenticeship/Co-op program will be the next step in wheeled living evolution. he advantage is availability and cost as these units can be had free/ pay to haul off/ or less than $1000 if they are livable. A system to teach underprivileged and low-income city dwellers building and salvage arts are LONG overdue. KUDOS to Antoine.

      I totally agree with you Bill, and recycling Park Model and trailers is another great idea. Cut down on the wasteful lifestyle.

        I bought a 12′ wide MH in bad shape on a private lot to build a TH on the MH frame to make it legal.

          Well, this concern may not apply to you, but simply re-using a MH frame doesn’t automatically mean it will be legal. It really depends on the local rules as some places have laws against making any significant changes to the original structure and it generally makes it much harder to get insurance on the home.

          Mind, only the original structure is HUD certified and once placed on a property local rules takes over but also may be under grandfathered in status that’ll make changes fall under new rules… So everyone should research their area’s policies… Even where legal, you could be required to meet some local building codes or other requirements or have to pay certain fees before they accept it… Plus, it can also complicate the option to move the home to another property later…

          JamesD, You are correct always check your local rules, code, law but in my case the TH was a ‘repair’ legally , already passed by code enforcement after the fact as legal.
          The only requirement is the repair be as god or better than the original which it was a lot better.
          Since the trailer was in poor shape it lowered the lot price.
