Welcome to Tiny Homes, an idea that is more popular with minimalists than with neighborhood associations and zoning boards. We'll point out the fun parts. You'll have to check out the logistics and legalities - but this one's a new take on lofts and townhouses and tinies.
Kitchen, meet the living room, the media room, the family room, the front door and the back door. They're all in the same space. For $330,000 you can buy a place to live that has the lot size of a large garden (1,032 square feet), the size of a small house (850 square feet), the layout of an urban loft, and just enough separation from the neighbors to not be called a townhouse. It is a very modern concept, Built-Green, and very eco-conscious; but at its core just another way to package 2 bedrooms and 2 baths. It may be just the thing for someone who wants modern appliances, insulation, and conveniences; but who doesn't want to share a wall, mow a lawn, or deal with elevators. From the outside, it is remarkably unadorned. From the inside, it looks like the answer to people who aren't having massive soirees; which describes almost everyone today.
