would you ever consider a tiny home .. i know there are lots of people living in them now but i know there are alot of life style changes that would be needed to be happy in a truly tiny home but i know the bills would be smaller and everything would be alot less expensive

I would love to live in one.. I mean we are van dwellers and a tiny home would be big to what we are use to being in.

@horormike well ifyou look around enough there are free places that you can park like walmart, loves,pilot etc.. and if you are in a town where you know someone park at there house, use black out curtains.. and if you are parked at a 24 hour place you can use there bathroom/shower but have a port a potty with you just in case.. we have a lot of fun doing what we do.

In a word, yes. I would prefer to live in an RV (or a van, like @hillhjill ), but yes, I'd like a tiny house.

I would! That would be ideal for me, if I had a piece of property to put it on, in the woods, near a stream etc. i have looked up many models and options, and am enchanted with them!

I kind of find them pointless. A lot of people on the TV shows for it say they do it for the low cost of living but then they go spend the same or even more on building it as you would just to build your own home so they aren't really saving anything. Or they say they want it to travel the U.S. with but I am sure a lot of them get disappointed when they find out that the weight you are legally allowed to pull all depends on the state you go to and some won't meet that requirement because a lot of them are heavy. Plus I don't understand how anyone could raise an actual family in it even though I have seen some small families build them and move into. I always wonder what they are going to do when their 5 or 6-year-old boy becomes a 16 or 17-year-old boy and has the chance of being taller and longer than the tiny house. If you want all of that then just buy a camper or an RV to live in. Some of them cost the same price as what the tiny homes cost.

true on the tv shows they show people spending all kinds of money on them but you dont have to and also the bills to heat and cool a place like that would be much lower or even nil due to it would be easyer to go soloar or use wind generators .. as for the weight of them you dont have to make them mobile like a few people here mentioned that they would make it a perminate structure then you dont even have to worry about the weight and state regulations ..and although it wouldnt truly be feasable for a growing family really but a single person or retirees it would be perfect

@horormike I still don't see the point of them other than them just been another overrated trend/fad that people are going crazy about and will soon forget again. It really is just a camper/RV that looks more like a house and those have been around for years now.

@CaseyRoss9966 I agree prices for little homes are crazy. I've often thought an RV would be an interesting option for our family. However, if a person goes for a tiny house (and keeps it in a permanent location) they don't have to worry about unloading the gray or black water tanks that an RV has, or filling the water tanks. So it could be more convenient to buy a little house and have it hooked up to water/sewer...

I would love to have a tiny home .I have seen so many pictures of so many different kinds that it would be hard to choose, but I would prefer one set up permanently on a little bit of land. I live alone and my hobbies don't take much room, so it would be ideal for me.

same here but i am also having a conversation here about even living in a van as i dont take up much space and my lil pup dont either it might be the way to go for me but if i made a tiny home i think i agree with you i would make it a perminate structure as well

@horormike I personally would prefer something a little larger than a van, but not too much larger. I would like separate areas for eating and sleeping more than anything else.

Not unless I was homeless and someone offered me a place to live. .

why would you have to be homeless in order to live in a tiny home ?

if done correctly you can live in a tiny home and not use a ladder or stairs i have been looking into this due to a badly injured leg and some other horrific joint issues

If you live alone in tiny home then maybe can stand. But a family in tiny home that might be a no.

I would not be happy in a tiny home. I have to have an area to store the items that I sale on ebay and at the flea market pus garage sales. My husband has to have a TV to watch. No climbing upstairs for a small bedroom..
