I can understand this happening in California because it’s so expensive to live, but why would we want to do this at a global level? Maybe it’s people are starting to see that building construction of any type creates from what I heard over 75% of our pollutions and we has are becoming more aware of the damages it can cause, or is it just about economics and its cheaper living. It’s also very attractive because you don’t need any building permits and you can set a small home down on a piece of land and move it at will since they are usually made on trailers, now that’s sounds interesting to most I’m sure. I also see up to about $30,000 to build a small home, which in same states this could be a huge down payment on a real house. I think this is too much money to attain a or build a tiny home, but I’m sure there has to be benefits to it since these people have gone out of their way to do just that – build a tiny home to live in.


In today's day and age it's pretty much become a standard practice to equate dream homes with McMansions and sprawling estates. However, one California couple's dream home suggests an alternative to this dream -- both in size and in price tag.

For just $30,000, 31-year-old web designer Alek Lisefski built a tiny house for himself and his girlfriend Anjali on an 8-by-12 foot flatbed trailer. (The cost includes money spent on the trailer, tools, supplies and appliances.) And the best part? Not only does it have plenty of room for their dog, Anya, but it's portable as well so Lisefski could avoid the minimum square footage requirements most municipalities have for permanent structures.

Currently stationed in the backyard of a house in Sebastopol, Calif. that the homeowners listed on Craigslist, Lisefski's home took about a year to build and was dubbed "The Tiny Project." While the couple does do some yard work as a form of minor payment, they at least have access to the city’s water supply and have achieved their goal of living a more sustainable, somewhat minimalist lifestyle.

Inside Look at Tiny House

"While living in a such a small house, my space, and in turn each area of my life, will be simpler, less chaotic, and free from all but what is essential," he noted on the introduction of his blog.

He continued by saying that it all sounds "really great" to him -- and while it's certainly not a lifestyle for everyone's taste, at least it looks "really great" to others.
