Today I was reading about tiny houses. Check out the small house society. http://www.resourcesforlife.com/groups/smallhousesociety/index.htm
Some people really like living in a smaller space. I think I am one of those people. I imagine I will change my mind if I have kids but for now my 1400sqft house seems enormous. I think my RV is a lot more comfortable and definitely cheaper. I would really like to build a small house but I don’t think I can do it alone so I think I will have to settle for a small mobile home. It’s not as creative but it costs about the same, $20,000, and it will be quicker. For that instant gratification I will also get depreciation which is bad. It is funny to me that my house has a tiny backyard and my RV is on 4 acres. There is no way I need 4 acres unless I get a horse. I have always wanted a horse but that would set back my retirement plans indefinitely. So no horse for now. Maybe I’ll marry a guy with a horse (or two).
