150-200 square foot homes... the new trend
[link to www.dailymail.co.uk]
200 square foot homes prop up in DC as aspiring homeowners look for their piece of the American dream after the housing crisis

A neighborhood of miniaturized homes, that look like what some Americans build in their backyards as dollhouses, is propping up in northeast Washington, D.C.

The 150 to 200 square feet living spaces in a transformed vacant lot behind a line of row houses, sell for between $20,000 to $50,000 a piece and are part of a national backlash to the conspicuous consumption of the McMansion era.

The concept of the tiny residences came from Tumbleweed Tiny House Co., based in Santa Rosa, Calif., that launched in 2000. The plans faced a tepid reception but after the credit crisis of 2008, have exploded in popularity.


Goddamn hippies.

Correct. Considering that a typical 1,200 SF home in the U.S. probably goes for around $130k - $140k, a 200 SF home should go for 1/6 the price of that, say around $20k.

Re: 150-200 square foot homes... the new trend
ahhh the sweet smell of serfdom, welcome home mr baggins.

can't u all see where this leads? the slippery slope.

the trend is smaller cells, redistribution, a high tide lifts all boats, but they want to drain the seas leaving us all permanently grounded at the same level.

"A really efficient totalitarian state would be one in which the all-powerful executive of political bosses and their army of managers control a population of slaves who do not have to be coerced, because they love their servitude. To make them love it is the task assigned, in present-day totalitarian states, to ministries of propaganda, newspaper editors and schoolteachers.... The greatest triumphs of propaganda have been accomplished, not by doing something, but by refraining from doing. Great is truth, but still greater, from a practical point of view, is silence about truth."

Quote by:

Aldous Huxley

"There will be, in the next generation or so, a pharmacological method of making people love their servitude, and producing dictatorship without tears, so to speak, producing a kind of painless concentration camp for entire societies, so that people will in fact have their liberties taken away from them, but will rather enjoy it, because they will be distracted from any desire to rebel by propaganda or brainwashing, or brainwashing enhanced by pharmacological methods. And this seems to be the final revolution." -
