I’ve been a long-time supporter of the tiny homes movement, especially when it leads to greater self-sufficiency for those with low incomes, and all the benefits for them and for society of home ownership.
Many people can’t afford a full-size homes, but tiny houses can make great starter homes. They’re relatively inexpensive, safer, and warmer than living in cardboard boxes, and often much better maintained than most over-crowded housing units in the poorest neighborhoods.
Tiny houses can offer hope and help for those with low-paying jobs. They are not a silver bullet for all the problems homelessness can create, but tiny houses can be a substantial part of the solution.
