We've covered American's preoccupation with square footage before, but a blog post over at the Oregonian about Dee Williams' $6 monthly bill for heating led us to the website of the Tumbleweed Tiny House Company, particularly as a moveable vacation home...
...and we've been wondering how we would live in less than 100 square feet. The houses are truly tiny: plans are available for the XS, at 65 square feet, all the way up to the whoppingly enormous Enesti at 774 square feet. The aesthetic is more cottage than modern, though we do like the proportions of the XS pictured above. (On second thought, just about anything would look good in that setting.) Plans run less than $1000, or you can buy a complete house ready-to-go.
Good vacation homes, perhaps?
