Sept 16th, 2017; Tiny House

There’s a small group of people advocating “tiny houses” for low impact living. There is even a TV show that
features these tiny houses which are a marvel of packaging and multi-use spaces. I never took them very
seriously because I couldn’t imagine living in that confinement or the prospect of divesting myself of my stuff.
Not that I’m that attached to it, but the work involved in re-homing it.



But my friend NAG showed this picture of a tiny house owned by Asha Mevlana, who plays violin with the
Trans-Siberian Orchestra. I thought that doesn’t look tiny tiny, and it looks pretty cool. NAG gave a link
to a site which gave some details and a couple pictures.
The house is different from most tiny houses in most of them are built on trailers, although some of them
are built on truck/school bus/motorhome chassis. This house has the living part on a foundation and the
smaller part which is a rehearsal space/recording studio/guest room on a trailer. The deck in between is
a performance space (stage).



The first site gave a link to this site with a lot of pictures and the complete story of the build.
I was surprised how much the TV show was involved and of course it gave a deadline for added difficulty.
I’m aware of how hard it is to get suppliers to deliver the right stuff on time, but the red tape involved to
satisfy the City of Fayetteville, Arkansas, blows my mind.


The part of the trailer that looks like a giant amp, is an amp, which contains weatherproof speakers for
mobile or home entertainment.

this is a house I want to live in long term and hopefully have a family in,
Hahahahahaha okay sure.



This is a cute trend for young, single folks. But the minute you put a baby in that thing you're going to be living in a whole different world.

The tiny house trend has been around forever. They are called apartments.

tiny house

A good friend of mine went through a nasty divorce and split up of life and possessions. When that was all over, she built a tiny house for herself. Like many others, she started with a window-less trailer. It took her a year to make it truly livable. Personally, I couldn't live in it. But she is quite content and it is lovely. It's 1/3 the size of the one in these photos.

Right, and up to this point she and her boyfriend have lived separately, so she hasn't even had to share space with an adult, no less a baby.

Now that you mention it, my stepdaughter's efficiency is 465 square feet. I should tell her she's not poor; she's trendy!

Why do they call them apartments, when they're all stuck together?


newtimer  Saturday Sep 16 06:31 PM

I prefer my houses be equipped with a toilet. And a shower. But I'm kind of snooty that way.



xoxoxoBruce  Sunday Sep 17 03:06 AM

This one has both, and the shower is big enough for 3 or 4 people... 6 close friends.



SPUCK  Thursday Sep 21 12:33 AM

6 close friends... 26 clowns.



xoxoxoBruce  Thursday Sep 21 09:28 AM

No clowns left, they all went into politics.
