Tiny Houses 2016

I know we've discussed tiny houses here before, but it's been a long time. Recently, one came down my street (I believe the owners were relatives of a neighbor, but I don't know that neighbor well enough to ask nosy questions). I suppose that while many tiny house owners treat them as full-time houses, others use them the way RV owners do. And since they're becoming a bit more common and accepted, I thought I'd look into things a bit.

The wheels are essential for moving the house around, so that's definitely a feature most houses don't have.

Owners of tiny houses have unique requirements. If you're traveling with one, you have to be aware of bridge heights, how to access utilities and where you can park one. Here are a couple of sites that address those issues:

The ones below are in a vacation area and are (I'm assuming) rented out as cottages (the kinds of buidings that I've seen for years in northern Wisconsin,). Technically, they're not part of the tiny house movement, but I've included them just because they're so bright and pretty.

More realities on tiny house living:

I'm always fascinated to see how the interiors come together, as in this video:

Here are some really interesting ones. 

I don't think I would like to live in a tiny house, but vacationing in one could be fun and interesting.

Have a great day!

Mary, aren't they? I want to take a trip to Cape Hatteras just to see them in person (not that I'm going to, but still...). I love the bright colors.
