Livin' small, as in minimalistic...
« on: May 17, 2010, 03:12:03 PM »
You guys just gotta see this!  I found this headline article on MSNBC (don't flame me for wanting to be informed, I was just reading the news and not chasing greenbacks) and I immediately fell in love with the very smallness of this idea.  Here is a link to the the Tiny House YouTube video:

Ya' just gotta love it!

Look on the bright side, you can take a shower and grab a bottle of oat soda without leaving it XD

I respect the idea, and if it fits you then more power to ya. But I'd get claustrophobic. I need some elbow room at least as well as room for my animals and stuff. I also need a little bit of privacy from time to time. I like having space, so that wouldn't work for me. Nice idea though for those that are into that sort of thing.

But if someone tore up the rest room or let one rip, it'd stink up the whole house! o.0
That's just like, my opinion man.

News is news where ever you find it.

I like the idea, I lived out of a Bedford CF camper for about a year.

I could totally see myself living in something like that, going on a boat and taking it through Europe, Asia, Australia, anywhere in the world!
To be dude is both a philosophy and a way of life.
