Tiny Houses

I wonder if we’ll all be in these within the next 20 years…

There seem to be two warring factions - on the one side technology SHOULD be letting us live wherever we want, but more and more often it seems like we’re drawn to the cities for jobs.

With the price of fuel, it’s expensive to commute, and with the price of real estate, it’s expensive to live within the city… A really tiny place might be the solution.

For a young professional, if you’re working 12 hour days, all you probably do is go home and flop into bed. You hardly need a penthouse apartment for that. I think that might be an interesting market in the future - clean, neat, “high end” apartments, that are ridiculously tiny.
