Tiny houses — measuring just 100 to 200 square feet — are finding fans, especially among young buyers who don’t want to be “trapped” by a big mortgage.

The tiny houses are fine for singles or maybe a couple but when children are involved, more space is needed. I grew up in the 1950's when kids shared bedrooms and the livingroom was exactly that. Everyone lived in that room. There are still many small homes in the Twin Cities area. At least for me, one hundred square feet is too small and 2,000 sq. ft. Is too big. Somewhere in the middle is just right.

Very interesting. How about a shot of the exterior and how much it actually costs?

"...A tiny house raising." By the smallest Amish men you've ever seen. This is a rather novel idea and seems great for singles who don't want to be nailed down, but in some areas you can get a 900 square foot home for about the same price but with some area for a single person or young couple to expand...and a wider market if you decide to sell.
