planes: [ image 509x407]

Lots of 8' wide homes on the road. I live in one.

I'm sitting at the semi-custom battledesk in my RV which is about to become my roving home if the sale of my house goes thru.  But my interior width is about 127" across the living room with the side out.  A little narrower in the back.  It would feel cramped without the slides.  Like this with the big "reefer" and washer/dryer.

And and The Battledesk(tm) in place of the recliner and passenger seat...

vudukungfu: Lived in a 9 foot wide house for five years.
I'm thinking of going back to that.

I've been living in a 10-foot-wide "house" for the last four years. I cannot wait to get out of this crappy-ass trailer and into a real house. Doesn't matter if it's square or round, as long as it's not "trailer-shaped."

/I suspect all "tiny house" occupants have a secret 2,200-sq ft storage shed somewhere.

Also interesting:   spite houses, tiny houses built solely to piss off a neighbor.

I once saw "Europe's narrowest house" in Bratislava (130 centimeters, or 51 inches):

Then I found out there are other contenders.  Still, pretty darn narrow.
