    Seems pretty lame. I doubt that lady actually lives in that thing, but she travels a lot and is never there so, yea... Its easy to say you live somewhere you are never at. Who would live in a oversized prota potty? I bet you couldn't get a homeless person to live in that.

    Poop in somethin than wow... Whole house smells like ass until you empty out the bucket or what ever she poops in.

    I live in a large house and when it was just me living here. It was a very large empty house. I'm not a materialistic person... I do not buy things, constantly. I am terrible at decorating. My house appeared as a vacant house, when it was just me. Of course my room has tools, computers, and wires going everywhere... But everywhere else, empty and very clean.

    A few years back I had an idea for house designs... Its a pretty universal idea -- Compared to house size. Large or small. But a house that could be built by snapping/fastening things together. You could build your own house in a day... But its unrealistic... Just like these little house ideas that, for some reason you all think would be fun ? NOPE *shakes head*

    No one wants to live in a little house. No one wants to build their house themselves. A person wants to do little as possible within their home... Thats why people call other people to fix things. A plumber would call another plumber if their house had a facet problem.

    You know what would be cooler than a tiny house?

    A house you could just, turn a water hose on in the inside and clean that shit out. Have some Microfiber carpet that is self cleaning with a water steam system so the carpet steams itself. Furniture built in so you could push everything out of the way to have a empty room. retractable walls that could make rooms smaller or larger. Curved windows made out of the new Aluminum alloy. Thats right they have windows that are a Metal transparent metal. Doesn't shatter, Very well insulated... The only problem with them is that they are conductive, electricity can travel through them.

    Lot better ideas then a Inky-dinky lil house. An you know what would be cool. It would all be green-certifiable, easy to clean, almost indestructible, and with the retractable walls. It could be made to fancy any moron out there.

    You want to fascinate on house designs. Find a economical AC system idea.

    I'm sorry Vast Shadow, but I think you have home ownership all wrong. People work to buy and own a home that they can put their mark on. I have never met a person who has said outright, "I want nothing to do with my home"; people are always finding new projects/ ways to improve their homes. Why do you think home improvement stores like Home Depot and Lowe's are so popular? And I don't think it's right to completely bash people who are building tiny homes; they are only doing their part to create smaller footprints on the environment. I think it's best to give them support, not pound them into the ground.
