Carrie Caverly uses her laptop to find a new husband while she ponders why life let her down.

harlock: redsquid: Do any of these people have hobbies? If he's a contractor where are his tools? If your house is too small there's a diminishing return. There's no storage so there's no savings buying in bulk. You don't have room to store tools so you have to hire out for repairs and maintenance. Storage limitations also mean that items can't be stored for reuse or recycling. It may be great if you're a consumer with a passive home life, but for people with hobbies or home based businesses, it's a nightmare.

Yep, basically the hipster life style.  That's the one constant I've noticed between all these people, they don't DO things other than sit on their laptop drinking a mocha in their spare time.   And a lot of them try to force that extreme minimalist urban lifestyle on everyone.

She's a writer with a special blog. That's how they live now-her  blogging. That $130/year for utilities can almost be covered by their blog revenue, just as long as Mom & Dad help out with the other $128.74.

It seems like a great idea! The first thing I'd do is hitch it to my truck and get out of Arizona.

The couple moved from Prescott, Ariz. to Santa Fe, N.M.

Good job!

Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: archichris: I hope they have to pay to dump their poo. My water/sanitation bills are approaching $48,0000 per year on 120 units. If they are using some sort of free black water waste dump they are stealing from the rest of us.

Ownership of a rev counter is theft from the people!

I'm pretty sure the "plumbing" in that death trap is just a PVC pipe opening down onto the street.

I just read the article, incinerating toilet.....lmao. The amount of money I would pay NOT TO HAVE TO SET FIRE TO MY POO IN MY OWN HOME is higher than he 48k they want for that thing.

I just checked a nearby RV dealer's inventory.  Not a single  brand new travel trailer for over $39,999.  And that's the asking price.  Nobody pays the asking price.  And that one has about 350 square feet not counting slide-outs.  And it's designed from the wheels up to be towed down the freeway without falling apart.  Most travel trailers run about half that. And you don't have to spend months building it.  Just go down, write a check, tow it away.

Frantic Freddie: They're going to buy land in (most likely outside the city limits) Santa Fe? They'd better have deep pockets, that shiat's expensive. Not to mention they'll need water (there are places in this state where, no matter how deep you drill, there is NO water....but you still have to pay the driller), running power can cost up to $100k a mile, septics can run $50k+ if there's rock.

They don't need to drill for water, they can collect rain water. And why do they need to run power? They can get solar panels. And why would they need septic when they can shiat on the ground? Don't try to force conformity on them!

Is this the hipster response to trailer trash now?

At least not getting the latest or greatest consumer goods and not making your abode take as much room as possible "in" again.

48k can get you a luxury 5th wheel with multiple slideouts and a bathroom where you don't need to shiat in the shower.  This is just hipster  attention whoring at its finest.

Shane admits that the tiny house lifestyle isn't for everyone. But for people who do want to give it a try, the Caverlys are offering to help them get started. They're selling a replica of their own home for $48,000 and they can take custom orders, as well.

And there's the reason why they are living in that home.
