Micro homes are tiny houses, and an exciting new trend in housing options. I define them as ones with less than 500 square feet. Why have more house than you need? A little place is cheap and easy to own and maintain. Consider a micro home if you are tired of homes that are too large, hard to maintain, cost alot in heating/electrical bills and well, are just a testament to crass commercialism.
Here are some examples.
The only problem with these wonderful feats of architecture, is that Not many municipalities want them in your community. The reasons are various, but in the light of this economy, affordable housing is a must.
If your community is willing to have better, more sensible and economical housing, nurture it. If not, find out what can be done in said community to make it so that affordable housing is possible.
