Tiny homes are great for couples, but what about families? Where does the
brooding teenager go? Where do the rambunctious elementary school kids go?
Outside is fine, except when it's 100 degrees outside, or below freezing.
I fit a family of 7 in an 800 sq ft apartment, and it was doable, though
not a lot of private space. But I can not imagine going smaller and staying
Why don't these kind of articles address the question of land and zoning?

No room for books.
