NPR & Tiny Homes!

Hello and happy Wednesday!  Depending on when you read this (morning or night) you could be starting the hump or almost over it. =) Either way, I’m glad your here!

Today’s post is kind of random and will be rather short BUT on my way into the gym this morning I heard a story on NPR about the Tiny Houses that were built for the West Virginia flood victims.

As you recall I posted about this awhile ago since I called West Virginia home for many years and still have lots of friends in that area.  Tiny homes are giving these flood victims a house and its giving West Virginia a good positive image.  Well done West Virginia and the Board of Education!  (the WV Board of Ed gave funds to high school/vocational centers to build the houses) I give you two thumbs up!  Read the article here: West Virginia Tiny Homes

Tiny homes often get a bad rap but they can also be used for good such as to give shelter after a natural disaster or to help get homeless out of the elements.  I’m a bit biased, and realize tiny houses aren’t for everyone, but there’s nothing wrong with this lifestyle if you choose it and more (cough, cough) zoning/building/planning committee folks need to get on board as I don’t think they are going away any time soon.

  1. The first time I heard about tiny houses was shortly after Hurricane Katrina, when people were building Katrina Cottages on the land where there homes had been destroyed. I liked at some floor plans and thought “I could live there” :). I still haven’t made that happen, but minimizing has happened, and we’ll see what I do when I get back to the US.
