I would live on a boat again in a minute.
As a matter of fact, I'm going to research buying a slip.

And indeed many of the tiny houses in the tiny house blog do actually rely on wheels. So I would say a van/trailerhome/Yurt/Tent/Tipi are all valid examples of a tiny home movement.

Which would mean that the eco-yuppies have been predated by many many years.

There is still a certain stigma attach to being "the man living in the van down by the river!"

The tiny house movement doesn't make a lot of sense when you think that a tiny house costs almost as much to build as a normal small house since a lot of the costs are in the initial building fees, and a tiny house has everything a small house has except space, which is the cheapest part of a house to build, since it mostly consists of a few incremental square feet of flooring and roofing.

it could support lower operating and maintenance costs as well as (the owner's) unique perspective on life. it's all up to the individual
