I guess that's the part I wasn't putting together. These "tiny houses", unless you build them yourself, are every bit as expensive as some normal small houses, and... You probably can't get a loan for a "tiny house". There's usually a minimum square footage for it to qualify as a "house".

I've always maintained there's a market for 1,200 to 1,500 sq ft houses that have the amenities and niceties of a 3,000 sq ft house.
