    isn’t that something…

    glad to see it is preserved, hope maybe it can be used to bring more awareness to the Tiny Home Movement.

    I suspect (no idea) that back when it was his family home, it was a poverty driven measure, and the family was most likely “looked down on.”

    how nice it is now becoming fashionable and culturally acceptable to CHOOSE a Tiny Home.

    a little more on this…
    apparently a fellow was living in it. Group raised funds to build the fellow a new home, in exchange to give it up.
