Dutch Woman's Modern Tiny House Gets Approval from Local Council

dutch1

Though they are by no means mainstream, tiny houses are emerging as quite the cultural phenomenon, with entire television shows and blogs being built around this architectural genre, lifestyle and philosophy. While regulations in many places have yet to recognize them as legal places to live in full-time, some municipalities are catching up.

Another case in point is Dutch tiny houser Marjolein Jonker, the resident of this lovely tiny dwelling, who is also a “tiny house ambassador” and advocate. Jonker now has her home parked on a small plot of land on an “industrial estate,” actually provided by the council of the town of Alkmaar, in the Netherlands. She’s the first person in the area to have her tiny home given the legal go-ahead.

    Good to hear it was approved. It allows some financial freedom to live more simply and utilize natural resources
