But the best part, of course, are the windows—the all-glass full gable wall in particular, which frames mountain views and offers some of the allure of living in a glass box.

San Diego officials say they plan to begin allowing movable “tiny houses” in backyards across the city, to help address the local homelessness and affordable housing crises. The tiny houses, which are similar to granny flats but smaller, can be built more quickly and cheaply than granny flats and will create a new source of low-cost housing — without any government subsidies, city officials said this week.

“I think this is a good, common-sense solution that provides some possibilities for non-subsidized, market-rate type housing,” Councilman Scott Sherman said Wednesday during a meeting of the council’s Land Use and Housing committee. “It’s one small step in dealing with our housing crisis.” The committee voted unanimously to direct City Attorney Mara Elliott to draft an amendment to San Diego’s municipal code that would allow movable tiny houses as long as property owners adhere to a long list of restrictions and requirements. “I think it’s a good idea,” said Councilwoman Dr.

I tossed it to the floor, crushed it with a book, and thought about it every night for the next 20 years.

I shined a light into the corners of the bed frame. In college there was a boy in the bed. It was a different boy that finally, at age 30, got me to stop. That relief stayed with me.
