    Tiny house nation

    Anyone else watching this series? I understand and agree with downsizing but 250 sqft for a family if 4 is idiotic. Why not just buy a trailer for the same price and twice as much space?

    Those people are nuts... my wife watches that, each time I tell her, we are not doing that.

    Haven't seen the show, but some of those tiny houses are really cool. With a family, though? No way!

    Re: Tiny house nation

    I think they are great.

    Edit: I should say I wouldn't live in one. Maybe a cabin. I also love the Tree House show though.

    Re: Tiny house nation

    Here is the difference, I would never say something like "we realized after a few weeks that we didn't have a tv". I would love that my house costs 20k though. The big thing is height, if you can create two levels it helps a lot.

    Single? I'd give it a try.

    Couple/family? No way.

    Re: Tiny house nation

    The wife and I are in the market right now for a home and one of the biggest reasons is we feel on top of each other 24/7 in a 850 sqft apartment. These people are nuts.

    I refuse to **** in a bathroom that is less than 250 sq ft.

    It's on the FYI Network I think, whatever the hell that is.

    Thinking about living in a house that small just gives me anxiety, especially with my above-average height. I don't think I'd last a week.

    Like everything else on TV it's probably all fake.

    My guess is they move out within a week and go back to something normal. If not they really are crazy
