    I love the 504 square feet tiny house not on wheels in WA. I love that it is on a slab and does not roll.

    Lots of places like this in Britain and Ireland, usually started off as a tied cottage and were used by workers. Full families were raised in them. My current landlady lives in one though hers was enlarged some time to add a bathroom and kitchen. It was 3 rooms, 2 bed and a kitchen/living area but now has a tiny bath and kitchen. It had enough room for her parents, herself and her daughter (widowed young) plus her brother and they lived there until about 5yr ago when her parents died. There are plenty similar ones round here and where we lived in England there were tiny houses consisting of 2 bed upstairs and a kitchen and living area downstairs, outside toilet. There was a waiting list for these properties in spite of no bathroom and outdoor toilet plus only cold running water. Again these were a couple of centuries old and used to be almshouses, cheap rental meant if you were lucky enough to get one you stayed. Know many who raised 4 kids in one. Recently looked on the internet and they are still there, unchanged.

      Not really surprising considering how houses used to be built…

      Generally, most modern construction in the states sets the standard for houses that they should last only about 30 years before needing any major renovation or repairs but it used to be the standard to build homes that would last centuries.

      But we live in a society much more used to disposable commodities and often rapidly changing conditions…

      I think one of the things that attracts people to Tiny Houses is the appeal that being able to custom build a home allows a returning to the old ideals of what a home use to mean… Something that was personal, like family, as it was something often made by family and meant to last for generations… Allowing people to be emotionally invested in it, providing both shelter and emotional comfort that helped effectively to utilize it as a tool to help forge the life they wanted to have, and providing a sanctuary from whatever else may happen in an otherwise ever changing world…

      IMO, I believe, regardless of what people may choose to live in, many want the old saying to be true again that home is where the heart is…
