Interesting responses...I think its more a generational thing...those suggesting its not the way to go being over 45 and those more open to it being under (?)

I actually think this is the way to go..under 45's are fundamentally more adept to change than those over and as such are happy to look at 'alternative' solutions to what's been the perceived 'norm' these last 40years.

Also, as we've moved from a largely paper based era to a digital one with less clutter it would seem to fit better. How many of us with a spare room and/or garage actually use it for anything else other than to hid s*** away that we cant bear to get rid of?

Today's generations are less protective about such things as all their mementos are on Facebook or the cloud.

It is all fine and good those decrying his as a backward step. If you have a nice house you may well feel that. But many people - and there are more and more single people of all ages now - would much prefer such a place of their own, that they could afford, to the alternative - which is? There are many different possible solutions to the housing problem and this could be one of the more practical ones.

PS: Lyons550 - and I am well over 45 !

I have been banging the tiny house drum for years now.

Anything that can break the obscene rental costs we now face has to be a good thing.

Minimum wage before tax sits at just over 1000 a month, rent is about 800 a month in Croydon now, factor in living expenses & bills and you pay out more than you earn.

Tiny homes and other alternative accommodation is the only way out of this unsustainable mess.

It wouldn't. People would end up paying the same but for less floor space.
Personally i'd raise taxes on second(+) property ownership but this wouldn't happen as it would affect far too many further up 'the food chain'.
Renting is a fine option (when at a reasonable price) for many but over several years now the disease of becoming a landlord (letting those less fortunate than you pay your mortgage) has taken hold.
Sadly it's ruined the lives/futures of at least one generation. Probably more.
