Yesterday (as there is nothing on TV on Monday nights) I got sucked into watching Tiny House hunting on HGTV.
It made me wanna slap some of these people.
What hooked me was this young couple (the guy was hot) who had three children under the age of 5, a dog, and another fetus brewing, who were looking to downsize into a tiny house.
Like 280 square feet of tiny.
For six people.
And a dog.
And I was all “You have GOT to be shitting me with this.” I mean, I could live in that space… maybe. If it had a normal toilet and a washer and dryer.
All of this got me thinking– could I really do a tiny house? And the answer is yes. If it were engineered for efficiency and it was modern as fuck. And about 400 square feet.
I would want solar panels, and lots of glass. And thermal efficiency w/passive solar heating. And a septic system. And definitely a washer and dryer combo unit thing.
And a cool location.
And it can’t look all country cottage; I want cool design.
Yeah, I could live there. With them.
