Tiny homes are taking over the world, and just when we thought they couldn’t get any smaller, another one pops up half the size of its predecessor! Resting on a friend’s tract of land, Janice Kenney’s tiny home, “The Mobile Kermitage,” measures just 140 square feet and forgoes all the creature comforts of the typical abode — there’s no shower and only a simple stove. She sleeps in a loft on what isn’t quite a second floor, and considers herself part of the “small house movement”, which advocates living in small homes for economic and environmental reasons. Kenney’s house was created by Tumbleweed Tiny House Company and cost about $49,000 to construct.

    For 50 grand, there better be a shower. I could build my own small home on a trailer for far less than that and still have a shower in it even if it’s just a hanging water bag. And seriously, who designed the roof so that hauling it would put the flat face of the roof into the wind? A hip roof system would have made more sense. Great concept, but for $50K, I could buy something with a lot more space.
