I think that in many cases these specialty "tiny houses" are work arounds for zoning laws of putting "trailers" or RVs on a piece of property. Yes, they may be "mobile" to get them on site, but in reality they are not road worthy. In addition, you will notice some do not even have bathrooms, so I think in those cases zoning looks at them as "sheds", but of course the owner has to put it where they can use the facilities of the main house.

What we find humorous, is that while some of the shows focus on specially built units that are very space efficient like an RV (although most still seem un-livable) others have people looking at other small buildings that may be "livable" for short periods of time (like a "cabin"), but are so inefficient in space manage to you could never really live in them long term......

Getting around RV restrictions is a very good point. I hadn't considered anything like that.

I believe it also gets around property taxes levied on a permanent building.

I think the topic is foolish within the parameters of the TV show. It would/could make sense if it were applied to the homeless, but it would be cheaper to provide used TT, 5er and coaches than build some of the so called 'houses'.

They showed a couple with two children. Parents had lost jobs and everything else when crisis hit 8 yrs ago. Ended up buying a cargo container with no bdrms and no living rm. Just don't get it. I think it was $30,000.
