Tiny houses seem to be all the rage right now. I'm intrigued by the idea of people living in a 200-250 square-foot house, although I can't imagine doing so myself. I recently came upon this video of tiny houses that are being built as apartment "units," which can be removed from the "apartment building" and moved anywhere.
My first thought was, Wow, this could put real estate agents right out of business. My second thought was, Hmmm, for a tiny house it sure can store a lot of wine.
Apparently, I'm not the only one who is fascinated by the emotional wherewithal of people who opt to live in such efficient quarters. This hilarious essay in Medium struck a chord with many of us who just don't get it.
Don't get me wrong, I would love to think I could live in a home where I could see everything I own just by craning my neck. But how would I host Thanksgiving? Where would I put the Christmas tree? For that matter, where would I store the Halloween candy? And would any trick-or-treaters even come?
Obviously, I'm not ready to make the big move to a tiny house. Not so for my son; he says he's going to build one in the back yard so I can't nag him about cleaning his room.
If you're ready for a move and are still in the market for a big people's house, I have inventory in all shapes and sizes. Give me a call and let me show you around! 973.809.5277
