For $36,000 you can get a barebones "Tiny Home". Take a look at the interior:

Good luck with the code, even in the boonies. Anywhere there is a job, there's pretty much gonna be some PITA code. And, not including electric and sewer, it could easily cost thousands more just to legally install it on the property.

Or, you could get a 10-year old trailer, that comes with a full set of appliances - not just a toaster oven and a fluorescent strip light and a socket or two. This is what $36,000 buys you:

It's also got a skylight and a ceiling vent fan. And of course, a diesel engine so it can move itself AND provide power. And electric and sewer is easily plugged in a huge assortment of places.

And which has more "curb appeal"?

Don't be a Green Trust Fund Baby who thinks they're all cutting edge and smart, when a trailer would get them a ton more shit (including a diesel engine and a "house" that moves itself) but isn't so "Tiny Home Trendy Cool"

I can just picture it with a chandelier made of cast off needles,

Great. A box with a window for $40,000

Wasn't that long ago that Sears would deliver all the parts and plans for a sumptuous home for less than a tenth of that.

What next? $20,000 tents?

Or $10,000 sheets of plastic?

Google Sears Craftsmen Homes and look at (I)mages. Some of these homes are likely on historical registers somewhere.

The one I built:

It's sexy AND portable, all at the same time!

I'm impressed. Sell your design.

I'm trying to sell the whole thing. The problem is, the broke Millennials have no money, and with their 520 FICO scores, can't get approved for a loan. It's been an absolutely eye-opening experience dealing with potential tiny house buyers, and it hasn't been good. What a large group of ignorant and clueless humans (who don't pay their bills).

This is the generation going to be running the country when we are in retirement. We are SO fucked!

The Housing Trap
You're being set up to spend your life paying off a debt you don't need to take on, for a house that costs far more than it should. The conspirators are all around you, smiling to lure you in, carefully choosing their words and watching your reactions as they push your buttons, anxiously waiting for the moment when you sign the papers that will trap you and guarantee their payoff. Don't be just another victim of the housing market. Use this book to defend your freedom and defeat their schemes. You can win the game, but first you have to learn how to play it.
