Tiny homes "a magical solution to our rental crisis"


A strong attack on the tiny house movement in the i newspaper by Eleanor Margolis argues that "the movement encourages people to live off-the-grid in aspirational tiny houses, but in many cases it's just hipsters playing at being poor". Here's a snippet:

Or at least this is how it’s billed in the snowballing tiny house online content. Tiny houses are often as off the grid as possible, with solar panels and composting toilets galore. Which is fairly objectively great. But a common thread in tiny house owners’ stories is having friends or relatives who are either landowners, or builders, or sometimes both."
