Been living dream in 325 square foot 5th wheel several years. Local city zoning not favorable for small residential structures (no tax benefits to local governments due to reduced size of properties). Until state and local governmental bodies decide to get on board with appropriate zoning, they are missing out on the huge benefit of an increasing population of tax paying, capital rich, and stable residents (see Texas communities embracing this new paradigm.

If I lived there alone I could handle it but not with another occupant.  In that case I'd last about an hour!

I have been living in a 2 room park model home for 5 years. It is 30 feet long with 2 slide-outs. It is plenty comfortable with suffient room. (Except for storage of any extras.) Lots of windows & nice view of a pasture. I'm an 84 year old male who lost 2 wives. This home would be a little too crowed for more than 1 person. Could suffice but not if I'm one of the people. I've become a loner.

Tiny Home/Tiny Cottage

2,612 Views
Message 4 of 4

Hello All!

 

Anyone living in a tiny home or tiny cottage?

 

Would love to hear from you if you are or dream of living in one.

 

As I age, I know one big concern are UTILITIES and of course RENT/MORTGAGE. Have done major research ONLINE but would love to hear from real people/lol.

 

Energy efficient options such as solar maybe???

 

Using rain water????

 

Then the challenge of finding locations that ALLOW these homes/cottages and being able to purchase one. Would love to DESIGN my own as so not into the LOFTS (stairs/yikes). Need EVERYTHING on the same level and NO WHEELS for someone to tow me away/lol.

 

Let's talk about this!

 

Hugs,

Angela
