Tiny houses pop up in my life at a frequency that far exceeds my actual real-life experience with that particular type of housing. I’ve never seen one in person, and I have no desire to live in one. The closest I’ve come to a tiny house is touring an 1800s camp on Martha’s Vineyard.
I see tiny houses in the news and on TV all the time. I talk about them at family gatherings because someone has them as rentals on his properties. I even met someone in Hartford who had experience developing tiny house communities.
The appeal of tiny living eludes me – it’s just not for me.
That said, I can understand the draw. The economics are attractive if you’re willing to live in a very small space. And the ability to periodically move your home to new locations can create interesting possibilities.
When I saw this article about a tiny house in the Prairie style of Frank Lloyd Wright my mind went to work. This is a tiny house that I might be able to get behind.
I definitely wouldn’t live in it, but I think it would make an amazing rolling office.
Swap out the bed for a conference table, add some technology, and this could be fun. Best of all, the company that makes these things (Escape) builds them to RV specs. So it’s going to do a whole lot better on the road than the typical tiny house that was really not designed for travel.
Maybe I would even take it out for the occasional weekend camping trip…
