Lee and I are heading off to Houston for some real estate learnin’ and networkin’ time, leaving our business and homes in capable hands, thank goodness. (Hooray for Anita and Mandi.)
As we were packing up, I realized that our car had more storage in it than many of those tiny houses we keep gobbling up television shows about. That got me thinking…
What’s So Great about Tiny Houses?
I know perfectly well that I am not the intended audience for tiny houses. I admit that I have a closet at the Hermits’ Rest the size of some of them (really, it’s 324 square feet), and I’m a collector. Even after all my downsizing, I still have a lot of dishes with flowers on them, books, and yarn (not to mention, books about yarn). But, I can see the attraction, say, for a weekend house or camp. And there have been a few of them that have tempted me greatly, mainly tiny houses with high-end materials that are like little jewel boxes of perfection and efficiency.
And sure, if I was wanting to move frequently and keep my housing costs down, they’d appeal more. So, sure, tiny houses may be great for some people, like single people with no pets who only need a week’s worth of clothing.
