For those that either can’t commit to this “crazy” RV lifestyle — the masses have spoken and a new breed of residence has been born. These are “Tiny Homes” and they average 100 – 200 sq. ft. in size, come with wheels, and cost between $36,000 and $47,000.
The idea behind Tiny Homes is to offer people a way to live free of daunting mortgage payments (although I still don’t have $36,000 laying around) and a more resourceful lifestyle.
OR you can go to Mexico with $2500 and drive home a vintage one and really live life.
This is Jay Shafer showing off his 100 sq ft house. He lives somewhere in central California, maybe near Napa. He owns Tumbleweed Houses who build some of the homes (their site is down from all the recent hits).
They say you can park it anywhere you can park an RV, so…maybe this is something Jeff can retire into when he’s 65.
Here’s a blog that has a list of “Modern Day Thoreau’s” — people buying up land in beautiful places, dropping a 150 sq ft. home down, and “living in their view rather than looking at it”. Well done all of you people.
