    They're cute and affordable, but I would feel like I was in a jail cell. I don't even think my dog would be comfortable living in that set-up.

    Depends on where the tiny house is.
    Location, location, location.

    I could live in one of those by myself but not with another living creature. I've watched those shows with my chick and we both agreed that I would have to spend most of my time outside in a tent to avoid killing each other. They are adorable, though.

    I would never subject my family to live in one with me. But for somebody who is single who doesn't horde a bunch of possessions, I think 300-400 sq ft is do-able for me. I would only consider it if the tiny house is situated on at least 2 acres of land where I could roma around and not feel so constrained all the time.

    The problem for me is that the tiny houses aren't really that cheap. It doesn't cost THAT much more to just build a small 1200 square foot ranch house. With interest rates at 4% or less, you're not even talking about that much more money.

    A tiny house to Howard and Beth would be 10,000 square feet.

    They're kinda OK... I sort of like small claustrophobic spaces but probably not to live in.
    The deal breaker for me is the disgusting revolting smelly composting toilet- inside your tiny home- and the inadequate showers. I need a long hot shower... and a regular flushing toilet.
