All they need is a giant flatscreen in there playing "Ow, My Balls!", and our transformation into Idiocracy will be complete.

What housing crisis? everywhere I've ever travelled in my life is plagued with empty neighbourhoods and empty houses all over.

Tiny houses and the people who push them seem to me like they are trying to prepare people to live in cages like pets.

Smaller houses are cheaper to heat and cool, all things equal. But they tend to also be much roomier and easier to construct, for the footprint, than this novelty idea that hits the press every seven to ten years.

I have a normal sized house I can heat and cool it just fine, I can also have a yard and personal belongings and a real life too.

my concern isn't tiny houses, it's the preaching of "housing crisis" and over population bullshit, those are just lies to condition us to think we deserve less. These tiny houses are fuck all compared to a decent camper.

OPod tubes could be solution to housing crisis | Daily Mail Online

"The OPod Tube Housing system aims to re-purpose concrete tubes measuring just over eight feet in diameter, and turn them into 'micro-homes' with 100 square feet of living space."

'James Law Cybertecture envisions the OPod being installed in urban areas unsuitable for standard construction, such as narrow alleyways between buildings, for example. '

'It is the brainchild of architect James Law of James Law Cybertecture who designed the build as a possible solution to the lack of both space and affordable housing in Hong Kong. '

'A Hong Kong architect has invented what he believed to be the solution of overcrowded cities by turning concrete water pipes into tiny homes. '

'With a population of 6,690 people per square kilometer in 2014, Hong Kong has one of the most competitive real estate markets in the world. '
