    I am fascinated by small houses and would love to explore life in a small space. But I have two kids. I have yet to see a tiny house that is suitable for family living.

    I do appreciate Andrew Michler’s comment that small houses tend to be retreats rather than every day living. This factor calls into question the fundamental sustainability that small houses so frequently proclaim.

    If they are used only on weekends and/or a few weeks each year, amortizing their environmental investment takes much longer than a primary dwelling. And one should also count the transportation costs (and time) to and fro the owners’ primary dwelling.
