Fox News - Evan and Gabby Coulson have always loved the idea of just living with what you need, and nothing more. The two of them now live at Camp Ondessonk in Illinois, where Evan works. While they already had a very sustainable lifestyle, about a year ago Gabby was inspired by a story about tiny homes she read on Tumbleweed Tiny Homes. The story stuck with her, and she decided that she wanted to downsize dramatically. At about 117 square feet, the home has everything they need — and nothing more. After they finish their home, Evan and Gabby will register it as a custom-built RV. Since it's on wheels and was built to be adaptable to an RV park or even a friend's backyard, it's completely portable.
Let me go on record as saying I think this house is actually pretty awesome, the interior is really cool, and looks like something I'd totally be into...when I was 10 and wanted a clubhouse in my backyard.
Guys, it's looks really nice, but at the end of the day, you made a Ski Chalet of a trailer. A really nice one, will definitely be the best in the trailer park, but its a trailer all the same. It can be pulled on wheels and has no foundation. No need to sell it to me as anything else. It's not a little house, its a little house on wheels. End of story.
And have you guys fully thought this through? Who gets this when you end up divorced in 6 months? You both spent a lot of time and effort building this, it'll be a shame to see you guys try and split it up...and you will split it up. I need more than 117 sq feet just to brush my teeth in the morning (I require a lot of elbow room), can't imagine living with someone on top of you 24-7. That's insane. Just picture the first time you're both trying to cook, she's elbowing you, you just hit her in the head with a cabinet door (by accident *wink)...now extrapolate that to every day for a few months. Miserable, right? You guys are either ordering out every night or ending in a murder-suicide.
But hey, great work on the trailer, looks really nice.
