as someone looking for housing under 100,000 i don't find this very helpful: > I will say again: We do NOT have an ?affordable housing? problem. What we > have is a serious income inequality problem. Trying to create affordable > housing by cheapening the product ? and cheapening it within the paradigm of > the stand-alone single family dwelling ? simply leads us further into the > dead ends of the unsatisfactory (?mobile? homes) and the absurd (tiny > houses). If we combined more multi-family zoning with the progressive tax > structure that served America so well in the ?50?s and ?60?s, the affordable > housing problem would pretty much solve itself." the income inequality problem is a lot longer term issue than the immediate need for community that is affordable. i don't find tiny houses or mobile homes absurd at all. i would not consider these 'cheapening the product'. i have seen beautiful mobile homes and would consider living in one if they would allow me to continue working in my home. i am a 75 year old mental health counselor. and as someone who has been looking for affordably community for many years, these remarks feel like snobbery to me. i saw not too long ago a group of small if not tiny homes built by a group of friends, a cluster of 8-10 homes, so they could form their own community. i admit i am not educated about the cost of buying land and building but if they can do it, it can be done.
