Livin' small

America, it's time to say a (less than) fond farewell to the McMansion.

This NPR story includes a video by a living-space innovator, and also covers Tumbleweed Tiny House Company, that sells plans and kits for very small dwellings (some on wheels).

Yours truly gets by fine in 500 square feet (plus access to the basement) and thinks he could manage in a 300-500 sq. ft. house-- in the right setting!
