Small-space bunkbeds for kids: Tiny House Talk blog posed a question, "Do you think it would be comfortable to raise up to four kids in a 2-bedroom home if they're all under the ages of, let's say, 13?"

Playing house: Making tiny-home living work with kids When my husband and I bought our first house, its 800 square feet of living space was perfect for two. It was what we could afford, and it suited us. We fought rarely, lived within our means without too much trouble, loved living within easy walking distance of restaurants and parks, went away many weekends, divided up the two closets, and dumped all the extra stuff in the basement. Then we had a kid. Daycare bills made us broke, we argued 400 percent more often, and we spent more time inside. We moved our one living room chair to make way for the baby swing. Tiny Houses - Tiny Home Builders What is a tiny house? A tiny house is a small house that is sized such that it can fit on a trailer. In most areas this means that it can’t be bigger than 8 feet 6 inches wide, 13 feet 6 inches tall, and 40 feet long. The houses are built on trailers since they are too small to be allowed as permanent structures according to most local code enforcement agencies. Why would I live in a tiny house?

A second, small home on a city lot: Conference examines Portland's position on tiny houses (photos and video) Speakers at the Build Small, Live Large Summit on Friday, Nov. 6, praised and criticized the City of Portland for its laws governing affordable housing, especially small, second dwellings sharing a lot with an existing standard-size house. "Portland is a leader in the country in the emancipation of ADUs (accessory dwelling units)," small house advocate Alan Durning told a sold-out crowd of 500 conference goers at Portland State University's Smith Memorial Student Union. The number of permits to convert garages, attics and basements into self-contained apartments as well as build detached cottages has spiked since the city waived system development costs in 2010, shaving $8,000 or more off building costs.
