  1. I love the idea of tiny homes and all that can be included in such a small space. I used to think bigger was better, but now I see all the advantages of enjoying life with less.

  2. 900 square feet ?

    Hardly small at all. Having spend a good portion of my adult life in single apartments and a 640 square foot condo in and around Hollywood, the shack I bought in Van Nuys @ 960 sq feet seemed huge.

    That was the standard in the post war boom: 900-1000 square feet. My shack had been built in 1947. Pure luxury to have a one car garage, off street parking, a place for a washing machine and [a dream of mine] a clothesline to take advantage of all the San Fernando Valley sun.

    It lived like a much larger house and was thankfully free of an “open concept” floor plan. Like I really wanted everyone to see my dirty dishes or fill my living room with smoke when I burned something in the oven.

    Kitchen was original with aqua and maroon tile, right out of the 40s and included an antique O’Keefe & Merrit stove. My Atom Age Granny Cottage.

    I hope this is not the future. My tiny home had architectural style, livable rooms and character. This is a box with some nice finishes. Not a diss to those who find something appealing about the minimalism, just not what I would pay $195,000 to own.

    Give me some of the vintage mid 60s mobile homes with built ins, sensible floor plans and efficient packaging. Period design, eye appeal.

    The tiny home industry could learn a lot from 50s and 60s mobile home designs. This, for me, is a penalty box.

  3. Who manufactures the tiny home featured as Palm Canyon Mobile Club? would like to do more research. Thanks.
