  1. Currently living in small space for the past 4 years. Less than $25000 to buy, monthly cost for utilities avg. $230 which includes a separate storage space about a mile away. I’m quite comfortable with less than 300 sq. ft floor space . It’s comparable to RV camping in a large RV, but with more privacy than an RV campground environment. My situation is actually more private than the house I used to own. It’s not for everyone, but I like it very much and plan on continuing to live this way indefinitely.

  2. 1:33 I’d be frothing at the mouth and unconscious just from the number of ‘tiny’s before that point…

    If you tried to go till the end you’d die. There is no other possibility. You would be dead.

  3. The best size for a house is the size that is right for you personally. I think we need modular housing.

    Make it easy to clean, maintain, and transport.

    When your family grows you can add another module or so in a way that makes sense. When your family shrinks you can sell off the excess modules. That would be the best really. I’ve been in big houses where the amount of time spent cleaning and maintaining them is unreasonable. I’ve never been in a tiny house so I don’t know the struggle, but either way could be bad.

  4. I would consider a tiny house, but I don’t think I’d ultimately go for it. I’m short so that’s not really my issue. And while I don’t want to have a HUGE house, I do want some space. I’ve gotten back into dancing lately and I can’t imagine trying to go about the routines I’m practicing in a room thats as big as my bedroom now. Nope.

  5. Having a tiny house is still a whooooolllle lot cheaper than regular stationary ones so. I’ll take paying $83,000 over $387,904 any fucking day

  6. Tbh i would probably want one when i get very old, although maybe a bit bigger than the average tiny home since i do like my privacy but like a small kitchen connected to the living room with a small closed off bathroom and a small bedroom. Its basically not small enough to be a tiny home but not big enough to really be considered a house, i guess a plus sized tiny home.
    Also people say cleaning is super easy but actually its the opposite, ive seen a fee videos on people who live in them and one problem is although there is less to clean, the second you walk in with dirty shoes or something your entire house gets dirty, if you cook and eat there is a mess in your entire house since everything is together and doesnt have much space to spread the mess out. So yes its easier to clean but youll be cleaning more often

  7. It’s important to mention the environmental factor of tiny homes. Generally, they take up less land space and use less electricity. If you look at tiny home YouTube channels, many or most tiny homes on display have owners who kept their carbon footprint in mind when deciding on living in a tiny home.
    I think that’s the best reason for anyone to seek to live in a tiny home beyond affordability.
    If you take a look at channels who display tiny homes, there are a lot of ingenious ways that people can maximize the spaciousness of a tiny home. Obviously, if you’re a large person, tiny homes by their strictest definition aren’t for you. However, the drive to minimize one’s home to simply meet their needs should be considered.
    A lot of people, especially in America, are taught to believe that the best way to live is in a large home. Not only does this take a toll financially, (I can’t remember where I saw this but I’m sure you can just google this) but people are more unhappy in their homes when they’re much larger than what they need.
    Moreover, I think the problem of space would be more or less ameliorated with a change of perspective. Currently, our idea of spaciousness is within one’s own home–the space available outside of one’s home has been forfeited for this private spaciousness. This ultimately leads to seclusion when this sort of para-freedom is in tandem with para-sociality brought on by our online interactions that have come to replace real life ones. Today, we’ve become increasingly aware of the detriment that the latter poses, including higher rates of depression and mental illness. This is even worsened by lower amounts if scenic natural scenery, the debilitation to our psyche that the extreme opposite of this has been seen in concrete jungles like New York that have prompted green zones to improve mental health.
    Ultimately, humanity needs to come to accept that we likely will never be simultaneously human and continue on a path entirely departed from nature. I don’t mean the technology is wrong or propose some organic woo woo bullcrap, but our drive to seek large homes rather than ones that just meet our needs is an indictment of how what we think we want isn’t what we really do–they’re mostly needs and desire we’re told that we need and desire rather than being actual ones and it’s become a part of our culture.

  8. I love the idea of the minimalism that a tiny house provides. But for a family its too little. Also 90K for a tiny home is ridiculous to build for temporary housing. The going rate for building/buying a apartment complex is anywhere from 60-75K for a decent building. Luxury apartments complexes in Class A areas could go upwards of 80-120K but these tiny homes are certainly not luxury. A community complex would be more cost effective in building as well as maintenance.

  9. Don’t overlook the fast that “Tiny Living” is really about cultural conditioning. Marching the younger generations into “minimalism is cool” think, is part of the plan to keep people from wanting better or more for themselves. Wages aren’t rising to meet the needs to live in a normal neighborhood, and have your own transportation. So, instead of raising wages, we are told that we need to downsize to accommodate our employers. We still work the same amount, if not more hours than our parents did. Yet we have less and less to show for it. So, here’s what happens… we are told our carbon footprint is too high, global warming is all our fault, (the earth needs our taxes I guess) and that living in a larger, more comfortable home is selfish and unnecessary if we want to have a sustainable life moving forward.

    “Stack And Pack” is a term used by the U.N. to meet global housing demands. You’ll notice in your towns there are more and more apartments and condos being built right now and they are smaller, with more floors than before. They want to cram as many people in the smallest square footage as possible.

  10. god, its videos like these that make me wish youtube still had video responses. As someone who was really looked into this subject for years, I think this video could have used a bit more information to flush out some of their points, and I would have loved the have a conversation about this.
