Would You Live In A Microhome?

Dee Williams used to live in a 2,000-square-foot, 3-bedroom home. Then she traveled to Guatelama (to help build a schoolhouse) and when she came home her house felt too big so built herself a home that fit. That turned out to be a 84-square-foot foot home on wheels that cost her $10,000: $5000 for the materials (mostly salvaged) and the other half for the solar panels and low-E (low thermals emissivity) windows.

She spent 3 months building her new home in Portland, Oregon and then hitched it to her truck and parked it in the backyard of her good friends Hugh and Annie in Olympia, Washington.  So, what do you think, Would you live in a tiny house like this one?

    That will depend on the course I am pursuing or the lesson I want to teach some people. Anyways, we should be ready to adjust to changes in an ever changing world where nothing is constant, except change itself.
