Could you live in a Tiny House?
Could you live like a mouse?
Could you live in a bus
without much space
and little fuss?
Could you live like a roach
in an old western stage coach?
I could keep going on and on  .....


So put me on a highway and show me a sign
And take it to the limit one more time. . .

Ha! I would only need wheels to get me where I want to be!

Though most tiny homes are being built on trailers so they can be  relocated at will.

Hahahaha!  It would be like spending the night in an MRI machine.

Was running a fuck-up of a construction project a few years ago, and had a knee playing up so got an MRI on both....it was the most relaxed I had been in 3 months, in that tube! Loved it.....

If you know, you don't have a choice you can do it!
It's knowing that there are choices, the mind refuses to accept.

Awareness is body oriented ;

Consciousness is mind oriented...

One may be able to deal with a space such as that...

Awareness , may not be able to integrate that spatial reality...

Just perception of programming

Right. Like, I'm actually torn between a treehouse ( they make beautiful ones ) and a tiny house on wheels.  I think I could live in a tree comfortably; however, the thought of living in a tiny house that wasn't portable is unappealing to me.  Unless, perhaps,  there was lots of glass and a spectacular view.

@Ahavati,
I think if we had the smallest space, the tiniest that one can imagine.  We can do it as long as we have access to outside, nature, parks or wandering the streets, they will all compensate to give us that room to 'breathe'.  
The question is, what if for some duration of time we don't have access to outside, how much room is enough for anyone to live mentally and emotionally well.
One room, studio?
Two room apartment?
a house with no backyard?
a house with backyard?
ofcourse the sky's the limit..but how little can we manage to maintain our mental well being?

I'm almost certain that psychologists studying the effects of isolation amongst prisoners would probably have those answers.

Any zoo will answer this for you too, with the exception of a few worldwide who offer fenceless zoos and real habitats.

If you really want to push it, watch Blackfish, and see where intelligence and isolation will get you. Hint: you will start eating people.

Some tidbits.


An 8 1/2 foot width is standard in tiny houses because that's the maximum width that can safely travel down roads without an oversize permit.



In most U.S. states this maximum size is 13.5-feet tall, 8.5-feet wide, and 40-feet long 65-feet maximum including the tow vehicle.
