Let's see. I'd need one for my fsbrics and sewing machine. One for my books One for my cats, tho they do tend to spread everywhere. Oh yes, one for me and my clothes, bed, etc...Almost forgot the kitchen/dining area. Of course they'd all have to be attached some way. No, don't need a monster home but guess these are way too small for me.

If only the zoning laws would let us build some of these houses so homeless people could have some sort of shelter.

I've seen some of these before and certainly suitable for keeping the rain off of one's head. Certainly have less to keep clean and we all have too much "stuff" to drag around. I think Patricia N brings up a good point, this could be a temporary solution for those in need until they could get on their feet.

For single men and women they may even enjoy a long haul in particular if rent or owning could be kept low to afford those who are retired on low income a solution to get out from high rental costs. However, I think for a those with children, this wouldn't be easy to live in, and I'd think a little bit larger would be nice overall. Would not allow for much room for visitors, in rain or winter can't always go outside, but for those who do not like a lot of people coming over it might suit them.

These mansion homes are so not needed, when the poor and a lot of the middle class are being asked or are forced to conserve, those with lots of money just keep building huge places, sometimes only staying in them a few weeks. Yet the resources that were needed to build and maintain them is ridiculous then the rest of us all suffer because they won't cut back or conserve. One can have suitable room around them without going to a huge place that is really showing arrogance.

I always find these homes intriguing/love them. I don't need super large but some times these really are too small. You need the right designer to make a small space much larger but sometimes i wish i could just have one of these to live in.

there is a woman that has the smallest little space/house.It is so so small I cannot express but it looks like a tiny cabin nad does have basics (wait ,no heavy plumbing). It has a ting front porch enough for her to sit and enjoy with her large dog!!! She can move it from place to place but she had this made to live on someone's property and pays almost nothing. She does use their main water facilities but rare and not often. The space was gorgeous and a tiny little getaway but her home and livable. It works for her...

Anyway, fun post. Thank You!!!

As a vacation home, possibly. I couldn't live perminately in a tube or a tree house.
