What a great attitude! I think the little place is adorable and cozy looking. Your heating bill will be next to nothing! What an adventure!rileyjo said:Don't laugh, but I am going to be looking at this little charmer tomorrow afternoon. I am in the middle of a job transfer and I need a place now. I have lived simply before. I spent 4 months in a tent trailer with no running water, no electric and TEENAGERS while I built my last house. If I can survive that, I can survive anything.

That's what I say. National publicity for living in a fancy camper? Maybe because she built it. I think all women should be able to build a "camper". The sad fact is that the publicity was probably more to make fun of her than respect for someone who chooses to live on less. They think it is real cute when a "normal" person lives in a small house, but nevermind the 3 billion people who do it around the world. Oh, well, what do they say, "All publicity is good publicity", I don't know if I agree. I have a buddy that lives in a 144 sq ft "micro-hut" as he calls it. Its a real nice place, nothing like a shack. Apparently a 12'x12' structure doen't need a building permit...Wayne02 said:Just get an RV and be done with it.

Could I live in something that small? Yes, as long as I still had my 1000+ sq ft shop building. The house is just a place to hang my hat at night (big or small).
The whole, "could you live in something this small" question makes for good news stories but has little practical value in the real world. If I needed to live in something like that, could I? Of course, you do what you have to do to survive.
Would I choose to live in something like that when I had other more livable options? Of course not, that's ridiculous.
She got some good publicity out of the deal anyway. Looks like WA state plates on that thing...
