Minimal tiny home
What is a desirable tiny home? How can we deal with housing in a constructive way? What is a bad solution?
I just noticed a story about Pallet creating shelters for homeless. While they seem to hit the basics, they also seem very emergency dwelling. Only a half step from tents. They claim to be insulated. Really doubtful about the long term relevance of these solutions.
There is a good article that breezes over some semi-current directions. Miles Howard writes in Tiny Houses about how Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) loans provide a partnership opportunity between the homeowner and a renter. It is just a 2020 pilot program but there are some interesting ideas.
The center in Santa Barbara called Dignity Moves seems like a stronger solution that builds with panelized walls.
There was a recent conversation about housing in Taos at Bataan Hall. The event was fully attended. Housing is an important topic in our community.
