Tiny houses

I was watching some stupid cable show on Christmas Day about so-called “tiny houses.” I believe that the SWPL types who idolize “tiny homes” are so out of touch with regular America that they are totally unaware that tiny homes have existed for decades and large numbers of people live in them.

This blog post sums it up best:

The fact is, tiny home communities DO exist. We call them mobile home parks.

Mobile homes are tiny. They are portable. They are efficient designs that are very affordable. Why have the tiny house proponents overlooked them?

Because hippies don’t live in them, rednecks do.

Hippies are too good to park their homemade tiny homes in a mobile home park because that’s where the lower classes live. They don’t want to admit that their choice to simplify looks an awful lot like just being poor.

Stop whining about city planners, vacation rentals and McMansions. There are tiny home communities all around you and you don’t even see them because you consider them unwashed masses. We poor folks have been living tiny for a lot longer than you hippies. You might actually LEARN something from us if you didn’t consider us beneath your notice.

I especially like the observation that living in a tiny house “looks an awful lot like just being poor.”

The real dilemma facing adherents of the “tiny house movement” is how can they live in a tiny house and also have only college-educated neighbors? And preferably be within or a short commute from a SWPL power center like Manhattan or San Francisco. And preferably, the tiny house should somehow not look low-class despite being tiny.

I figured out the solution: a zoning law that allows tiny houses only to be owned and lived in by people who have college degrees! Unfortunately, someone would probably find it unconstitutional. (And even then, it may attract the wrong kinds of college graduates.)

  1. Henry David Thoreau was the founding faggot of the tiny house movement. Even back then it was all about pretentious status signaling as his friends and family brought him food and clean clothes as he was “roughing it” and writing poetry in a cabin in the woods. Modern SWPL faggotry adheres to the same principle. It is not about doing good or doing well, just out faggoting your faggot friends.

    • Don’t insult Thoreau. It’s noble to live without the excesses of consumerism. It’s an inherently white thing to do.

      • “It’s an inherently white thing to do.”

        You mean as opposed to owning land? Even the medieval SWPLs had luxury nunneries and monasteries to live in. Sure, high end whites have traditionally favored land to other assets but they sure as heck viewed their land holdings as a status symbol.


        December 29, 2015 at 2:45 PM

      • It is noble if you do it honestly.


        December 29, 2015 at 2:53 PM

      • I think the key point with Thoreau was that he relied on others to clean his laundry and bring him food while he was ‘roughing it’.

      • I agree with BTDT about Thoreau. Don’t get me wrong. I’m not opposed to rejecting consumerism in favor of a simpler life. I’m into that myself. But I’m coming at it from a completely different angle than these pretentious hippies.

        Everything SWPLs do reminds me of artisanal firewood — just a bunch of faggots. <<< Did you catch that double entendre? 🙂

  2. Tiny houses are just artisanal mobile homes.


    December 29, 2015 at 1:59 PM

    • Very good. I always thought this movement was crazy. People are really serious, and think skeptics just don’t realize how groovy the places are…not like those terrible trailer houses! When I bring up how trailer parks have been run out of the area, and truly affordable housing along with it, they just look at me blankly. They totally don’t get it.

      Now, my first house was tiny. It was about 450 sf, one bed one bath, on a fenced lot with a garage. God I loved that place. It had been built 80 years ago to house railroad workers and gradually expanded. I wish there were more small houses like that one, but there’s no market. Either the buyers want something big and impressive with separate baths, or they buy condos and pay condo fees, or they go in for these stupid tiny houses.

      Meanwhile, we’re turning more British every year – moneyed classes in detached housing, and the poors in (subsidized) council flats.

  3. Aren’t cities full of “tiny houses”? We call them “apartments.”

    In any case, SWPLs have long been full of shiz on the topic of housing. They’ve mocked so-called suburban “conformity” from within ten minutes of Levittown being built, yet they are the most conformist people on earth, rigidly following all their unwritten rules. And if they ever bothered to go to a pre-made suburb or housing development, they will see that over time those “conformist” white suburbanites will dramatically change the same-ness of the neighborhood by add-ons, yard work, painting/decorating choices, etc. And of course the SWPLs bitch about “sprawl” yet the only thing driving sprawl in America anymore is immigration, immigration, immigration, because otherwise the population wouldn’t be growing.

    • “And of course the SWPLs bitch about “sprawl” yet the only thing driving sprawl in America anymore is immigration, immigration, immigration, because otherwise the population wouldn’t be growing.”

      Truer words were never spoken. In the SWPL world:

      White people having large (or any) families = bad for environment;

      Importing hordes of non-whites who have large families = the right thing to do (even for drought stricken California) and you are a hateful nazi if you disagree;

  4. “a zoning law that allows tiny houses only to be owned and lived in by people who have college degrees!”

    With the advent of open admission online colleges you won’t be excluding much. In this vein, I began watching Breaking Bad. I laughed when in one of the first episodes the wife of the main character, Walter White, finds the website of his new drug making business partner, Jesse Pinkman (the other main character). Jesse’s online profile lists ‘Devry University’ under education.

  5. It would be great to live in a small house in or near a big important city with good transit access in a great school district with well educated neighbors for cheap. You could save your money for international vacations, and artisanal cheeses and wines and still afford to choose a self actualizing job instead of the Wall Street, biglaw, or Silicon Valley rat race.

    So people tell hipsters that you simply can’t have all those things. You must give up the dream of an affordable but comfortable life with traditional values and a family instead of prioritizing status hierarchy all the time.

    And I don’t see how to do better in America. Maybe a college town or Boise could help a little if you don’t need to be near a major city.

    But Japan offers that life if you can stand to be a tradesman or small business owner instead of a sarariman. Korea also has small affordable houses in pretty neighborhoods with high education and zero crime in major cities with good wages.

    Heck, Mexico has lots of places where you can have all that.

    But mass migration, Soviet style zoning rules, political correctness, extreme class segregation taking the place of racial segregation, plutocratic malefactors, oil companies and defense contractors and Wall Street and their foreign wars conspire to make it impossible to live like that in America.

      December 29, 2015 at 3:44 PM

      • Oil companies were the leaders in driving invade/invite politics and involvement in the Middle East, as much as defense contractors.

        Also oil companies are part of the highways and sprawl lobby that makes most Americans segregate by home price and live in the biggest house they can afford to get decent schools. And they lobbied hard for the urban planning and large minimum lot sizes and minimum parking requirements that obligates everyone to need a car which destroys genteel small home affordable living.

        They’re an integral part of the parade of forces making America crappy for the middle class.

    • Owentt, wonderful post. I was just about to rant about how automobile supremacism has made it virtually impossible for non-rich people (particularly whites) to live normal lives without a car, and that Lion’s half-tongue-in-cheek comment about a community of tiny houses only for college graduates would be a total godsend for the Caucasian middle-class non-driver, who in some ways has become one of the most alienated and marginalized people in America.

      I often see liberal types decry the oil industry and wars for oil, and support better transit, but they always seem to own cars themselves, and never attack the myriad things, such as parking requirements for private residences, “free” parking at businesses, the extensive use of driver’s licenses for things other than driving, and various other things that prop up automobile centrism and indirectly support the things they claim to dislike.

  6. I don’t get why sweeple types adore working-class non-whites but absolutely detest their own poor. They’re all too willing to move into an inner city neighborhood. Why won’t they go gentrify a trailer park? What’s going on with these people psychologically?

    • Swiples love urban areas, and poor NAMs live in the city. Proles usually reside in the outskirts.

      • Proles in NYC live in deep south Brooklyn, much of Queens, and Staten Island, areas far away from “civilization”. Meanwhile NAMs reside in center of town. They just don’t have the money or IQ.

      SWPLs are nothing more than TOOS ass kissers. TOOS tell the SWPLs what to like and what to dislike and the SWPLs wag their tails and perform as directed. TOOS know that the economy won’t grow through innovation and yet they want to make money off of investments. What to do? How about capitalize on a system where immigrant costs aren’t imposed on the investor class but spread among the entire population yet immigrant profits accrue to those who invest in consumer products (Buffet??) and to some degree real estate. Increase demand by increasing the population. Immigration.

      Want to end this whole immigration charade? Make corporations instead of the general population pay all social welfare costs for immigrants (legal or otherwise) who come to the US during the lifetime of the immigrant and their offspring. All of the sudden the NYT and WSJ would be wailing about the horror of unchecked immigration.


      December 29, 2015 at 4:58 PM

    • Working class whites proved to be anti-revolutionary, maybe working class minorities will turn out better. Most SWPLs wouldn’t or couldn’t articulate this but it’s the intellectual genesis of the left abandoning support for working class whites and going all in on poor minorities unconditionally.


      December 29, 2015 at 5:05 PM

    • Because they don’t want to live in rural areas with no creative class or knowledge jobs. It’s not that hard to figure out. They’ve got no beef with white people per se, just see super white Portland for proof.


      December 29, 2015 at 5:28 PM

    • Would you allow a dog or cat to live with you? They have IQs of 25 and make house training accidents sometimes. Nevertheless you probably have one.

      But you wouldn’t invite a smelly homeless person to live with you.

      That’s why SWPLs like various minorities more than rednecks.

      Also, SWPLs generally don’t want so many minorities of the wrong types going to school with their kids.

        We don’t have any solid leadership. The upper classes espouse promiscuous values. I’m noticing that working-class whites espouse better values than do the upper classes. Could you imagine if the smart, capable leaders of a people saw their people as the enemy? They would be able to destroy their competition so easily.

  8. In prepping for this comment, I did a little research on tiny homes. The ones I saw ranged from legitmate, and attractive, small homes (not built on a flatbed trailer) to what are in effect not mobile homes (far too big) but rather travel trailers with wood siding. Most of them didn’t list prices, but the one that did, and which was a sub 400 sq. trailer with wood siding, listed for $80,000. Aesthetically, they are an improvement over travel trailers, but obviously you pay a premium for that, which no doubt appeals to SWPLs who desperately wish to believe that they aren’t buying a trailer.

    Years ago, an architect friend of mine was commissioned by a manufactured home company to do some brainstorming on how they could improve their products. He was given price points, square footage requirements, and the like, and asked to come up with any ideas that might make the homes nicer. After fiddling with the inevitable design trade-offs, he concluded that in every case they were already making the best decision with regard to use of materials, allocation of space, bathroom fixtures, etc. He came away very impressed with the degree of sophistication in the design of these homes, even though he acknowledged that these were not things of beauty.

      • That was my point, that tiny homes aren’t comparable to mobile homes because mobile homes are generally much bigger, although some single-wides might be comparable. When I say “travel trailer,” I’m referring to a towable RV.

  9. I once watched a documentary about hipsters creating off grid houses from shipping crates. Instead of toilets they used charcoal-filled buckets which they then used as compost for organic vegetables (shudder). I had to wonder while watching it, why not just get a mobile home? At least then you’d have plumbing.

    The hipsters did have one good point however: shipping crates are designed to withstand vicious weather at sea so in that respect are hurricane and possibly even earthquake proof.

  12. Every modern idea can be looked at from the sociological view of white class battle; SWPL vs prole white vs TOOS

    Prole whites would live in trailers.
    Prole SWPLs who are poor and in danger of becoming proles, call their trailers “Tiny Homes”, and rich swpls and toos laugh at them, prole SWPLs are doomed to be left behind. No SWPL with any self respect would live in a tiny home, simply because that low level of square footage means humidity and sweat and SMELL. But maybe a yuppie like me is not a SWPL.

  13. A young friend of mine is going to get married and wants to purchase a tiny house. They plan to live on their parent’s land, in this tiny home, for a few years.

    I immediately said that they should look into manufactured (trailer) homes and we did some quick google searches on tiny homes and their cost vs. a nice trailer. There isn’t that much difference. However, neither option is very “cheap” if you want to own.

    The cost easily ran up over twenty thousand dollars for a nice ones and some are significantly more expensive. In my opinion, that money would be better spent on a down payment for a condo or small house, especially for a young couple with no plans for children in the near future.


    December 29, 2015 at 4:40 PM

  14. And thanks to immigration from every crap hole on earth, sometimes you get the opposite problem of too big houses built by tacky immigrants who don’t care a fig about ruining the neighborhood:

    Meanwhile in New York City, SIXTY THOUSAND people have applied for FOURTEEN micro-apartments. I’m no economist, but I think this suggests a market for them.

  15. In Vancouver they have started building “laneway” homes. These are basically houses the size of a garage.

    They show examples of “cute” lane way houses. But in the end allowing this will produce crowded slums. Turning Vancouver into Bangalore. We can add “Van-galore” to “Hong-couver” in the list of new names for Vancouver. UBC, the University of British Columbia, is known as “the university of a billion Chinese”.

    Yes, I’m an old bitter white person who was born in Vancouver in the 50’s when it was (almost) all white, and a quiet, safe , affordable city. I am a UBC grad as were my parents. Now my children can’t afford to live there. The city is now three times the size it was when I grew up there. 2 million people from China and India have moved in. Nobody asked Vancouver residents if they wanted this to happen. It was imposed by the federal government.

  17. The tiny house movement is annoying, but I’ll admit that I’ve seen (not in person) more than a few tiny houses that look pretty cool. If there’s a single realistic dream that I have, it’s to own something like a tiny house in the middle of nowhere and use it as a vacation home that I occasionally visit by myself once my kid has grown up and moved out. I’ll probably do something with a cargo container that’s similar to the video that slithy toves posted above . . . although I’d at least need a working shower if not something that functions like indoor plumbing. Ideally, I’d also like my little vacation home to be underground.

    I’ve had this dream for close to a decade. I spent some time in prison during my misguided 20s and while day-to-day prison life was always a grind, I don’t think I’ve ever felt more relaxed than I did at night for three or four months when I had a cell to myself and was locked down alone from 7PM till 7AM with a crappy 10″ TV and a bunch of books.

  19. With the rise of DINKS, more single-person households, couples with only 1 kid I’m surprised there aren’t more middle to upper-class small single-family home developments (1-2 bedrooms with 1-2 bathrooms). 1-3 people don’t need 2000+ sq ft, and not all of us like apartments.


    December 29, 2015 at 5:54 PM

    • DINKS live in upscale condos, patio homes, or urban apartments. Renovating a smaller older home is an option, too, although why have to take care of the external features when you are busy with work all the time.


      December 31, 2015 at 7:01 AM

    • Shaniqua and her 5 kids ain’t likely to move into a tiny house. giving low rent SWPLs some of the advantage of economic racial segregation their richer friends enjoy. Unless these small single family homes are situated somewhere where the land value makes their price high (thereby cancelling part of their reason for existing) they won’t fulfill that function. The only city places these small homes/condos are likely to take off is in places like Manhattan or San Francisco, where, even though tiny their high price will keep blacks out. This is the unspoken component – Americans of all types spend trillions every year paying for houses they really can’t afford and paying for long commutes they make simply to avoid the black plague. Affordable housing, green if you want it, would be abundant without this factor. Tiny houses in the city = “for the good schools.”


      January 3, 2016 at 2:20 AM

  20. I did some research on tiny homes for a research paper I wrote in undergrad. I can tell you a few things:

    1. No one wants tiny housing outside of a few SWPL hotspots like Portland, San Francisco, and New York City. Most Americans still prefer their McMansions.
    2. Tiny housing crusaders believe that draconian zoning/building codes prevent them from building their tiny houses, which usually isn’t the case; most cities have reduced minimum square footage requirements to allow for tiny homes (which are usually 100-500 sq. ft.).
    3. To the extent that there’s anything preventing tiny houses from being built, it’s the property owners who live near potential tiny housing developments, who usually try to go out of their way to prevent them from being built, since they don’t believe tiny houses will fit in with the “character” of their neighborhoods.
    4. As others have mentioned, many cities already have specific zoning districts for trailer parks or communal housing, which are just tiny houses/apartments by a different name.
    5. Once one takes into account building materials and energy costs, tiny houses aren’t any cheaper than much larger houses on a per square foot basis.

    So yeah, this is just another WEIRDO movement for WEIRDO white people.

  21. Not exactly a “tiny house,” but when my father retired in the mid ’90s at age 55 he had what’s called a “manufactured house” built on a quarter-acre lot in southwest Florida, two blocks from the Gulf – 950 sq. feet for a total of $50K including the land. One rectangular box delivered in two pieces on a flat bed and mounted ten feet in the air on pilings. He sold it fifteen years later for $250K.

  22. Call it a graduate school with ‘on campus’ housing. Translation, a highly segregated trailer park with a fraternity-style admissions policy. That would probably pass muster if it stayed low profile. Maybe have a seminar series once a year.

  23. Tiny house are generally aesthetically more pleasing than trailers. They are also built to better standards (better insulation, better roofs, etc essentially the comforts of normal houses but in a smaller package) than trailers. But land in SWPL zones are expensive and condos are better for increasing density and creating walkable communities. A tiny house in SWPL land is a luxury.

  24. Watching these tiny house shows, you will see many young couples but few with children. This suggests a fad without much staying power.

  25. Like the rise of the hipster, it’s about some middle class kids coming to terms with now being poor. Trailer trash with college degrees.


    December 29, 2015 at 7:25 PM

    • Maybe you’re right to a certain degree, but I perceive the plurality of hipsters to be upper middle class people living off mom and dad (or grand-dad’s trust fund).

  26. Jesus, where is the call for population control?! There are too many people in America! Too many people in the world! Sterilize the 3rd world and/or cut-off aid, deport the 3rd worlders, and close the borders!

    This massive population density is a dystopic nightmare! Everything is insanely expensive, wages are stagnant, ecological conservation is impossible, and only the rich profit!

    • In some parts of Africa women have an average of 6 to 8 kids each.

    • part of the reason why gentrification is taking place in whitetopia’s like Seattle or Portland is because white SWPLs are tired of NAMs ruining hoods and causing over-crowding in CA. Ironically, the same SWPLs are pro-immigration and would welcome an influx of Muslims from Syria or Mexico because they believe it would bring about positive diversity in the form of delicious food and innocuous cultural exchanges. But if illegals didn’t flock to California, fewer displaced Californians would migrate to Whitetopias and the anti-CA sentiment wouldn’t be so strong in the PacNW. It’s like they bypass cognitive dissonance and believe in some fairytale world where millions of third worlders with homophobic, patriarchal, and sexist beliefs would bring about about a positive welcome change when the opposite is true.

  27. I consider tiny houses a welcome alternative to the trend of bigger and bigger houses, which often are far beyond what the owners actually need. Note that houses have gotten bigger even as families have gotten smaller.

  28. Two tiny house girls go ’round the outside, round the outside…


    December 29, 2015 at 9:12 PM

  29. Not that I would actually live there, but there’s some pretty decent mobile home parks on the Western side of Florida. They have pretty active HOA’s and everything. It’s where the gentiles with less money go to retire…

  30. And I’m sure everybody saw the article about the entry-level Google employee who lives in a truck in the company parking lot:

    • For $10,000 he good have bought a used pickup truck with a camper on the back. It would have a toilet (that would have to be emptied but not very often if just used at night for number 1), windows, ventilation , lights, a kitchen, built in bed, etc. It would be be much more comfortable.

    • There is a trailer park right next to the googleplex (Santiago villa) that is being gentrified by an influx of Googlers. Rents for 3Br start over $3000. Slumlord getting rich off Googlers desperate to avoid the soul crushing commute and willing to take on the stigma of becoming trailer trash.

      Not so desperate Googler

      December 29, 2015 at 11:04 PM

      • “Googlers … willing to take on the stigma of becoming trailer trash.”

        Heh, are we back in the gilded age or what? This is a sentence I’ll savour and unpack for a long time. So much goodness.


        December 30, 2015 at 5:27 AM

      • Well, it’s Silicon Valley and there’s no women around, so you don’t have to deal with the stigma of trying to get laid when you have to bring the chick back to a trailer.

  31. Hollywood director Tom Shadyac made a documentary called I AM where he talks about downsizing his lifestyle. He made millions in the 90s and moved into a mansion, but said he wasn’t happy. Now he lives in a trailer park. In Malibu. Where each unit runs over a million dollars.

    My grandmother lived in a mobile home in Camarillo, CA. It was nice! Almost anywhere you live you’re basically paying to have good neighbors (or no neighbors).

  32. Airstreams are the king of travel trailers. They’re very well made. They have there own funky cool look and there are tons that are available used at a reasonable price.
    Why bother to to do all the work converting shipping containers when you can buy a used Airstream?

  33. Is this the “new” normal? Cause it kind of sucks. Remember when you lived in a place that was so big you didn’t know what to do with all the space? No? Neither does anyone else. Why don’t these people go live in a Van by the River? What’s convenient about having a bed you have to set up? Do you want to move furniture around all the time because you don’t have the space to leave it there? If you want to move furniture, then get a job as a mover.
    What on Earth is wrong with these people? We live in one of the largest countries in the World and they want to live in a tiny box. I can just imagine one of these idiots meeting the girl of his dreams and taking her home to see his tiny shack. Well doggies! Where’s Granny and Jethro?
