Micro Homes

Would you buy a 100 sq.ft home?

I came across an interesting article...

Vancouverites who can’t afford to rent let alone buy a tiny condo just might be able to break into the real estate market if the latest micro-living design takes off. Local company Nomad Micro homes has designed 100 square-foot micro homes that it plans to sell starting at $25,000.
Complete with kitchen, bathroom, stairs, living and sleeping areas, these shed-sized structures will be manufactured in B.C. and come in a box to be assembled at home.
For an extra few thousand bucks, people can upgrade to add solar energy, rainwater collection and grey water treatment.
Assembly requires two people with basic handyman skills. To access water and electricity, owners simply have to hook up the micro home to a garden hose and plug it in.
Buyers can choose between composting and flush toilets, but the second will require a hook-up to an adjacent home, a septic field or the sewer system.
Of course, people will still need to find a place to plant their micro homes.
The company’s goal is to provide affordable and sustainable housing for “hard-working individuals who can’t make ends meet due to the high cost of living,”
