Tiny House Movement

In my neighbourhood all the old tiny war houses are being turn down and turned into gigantic single family homes, duplexes and triplexes.  I ofter marvel at the heating costs of such mega houses.

If you are on Facebook and aren't good at avoiding clickbait you have seen the exact opposite end of the spectrum.  Tiny houses. 900 sqft and down. Often built by the owner and using whatever he could find in a 100 meter radius (I jest). However tiny houses are amazing. They look cozy and often epitomize a Japanese aesthetic of style and functionality.

What takes me out of the tiny house market is a husband, two boys, a cat and a billiards table. 

Today you can see a 165 sqft one on beautiful Pender Island HERE
