  1. Tiny slum houses will be the only hope of U.S. home ownership in our current economy which is now at the lowest level (67%) since 1995. I’m not feelin’ the “hope and change”.

  2. really – tiny houses affordable to slum dwellers – i dont know many slum dwellers who have upwards of $8000 laying around….maybe im not hanging around in the right slums….

    cute house though….which is why i checked out the pricing….i – not a slum dweller yet – wouldnt purchase this product for that much dough…gracious. oh and figure in options and shipping.

    • Of course–sorry to put you next to giant rats! Looking forward to following Bread.

  3. Although I found this article whilst looking for other information on gardening, I cant help but say that although the economy is not great, the west always finds a way out and I am confident things will look up soon.

    As for giant rats, in my job I heave to deal with them on a day to day basis :)
