A more feasible idea is to let those in Mulnomah County who want to be supporting landlords, purchase a large tract of land and place a number of tiny homes and make a tiny home village.  It would eliminate having to impose on your neighbor living next to a tiny home and it would provide a community rather than a 'squatters' environment. Most importantly there needs to be some kind of incentive for those in the tiny home to become self-supporting.  Giving people homes and supporting them for five years does little to encourage them to become self sufficient. 

Has anyone given any thought as to what's going to happen at the end of 5 years?  What happens to those that haven't become self-sufficient?  Kick them to the curb?  Let them stay another 5 years?  What if the inhabitants of the tiny homes are loud and disorderly?
Chicago has those, they're known as the projects. Yeah, that worked out well. :biggrin:

LOL...brings new meaning to the term Slum Lord.  Way too many issues with this "solution".  What happens to the resale  value in the neighborhood.  What happens after 5 years and the people won't leave the tiny home.

Perhaps they need to do a test run, build a few tiny houses and put them in the Mayor's (?) back yard for a couple years.

That's the thing, in many cases, it can take years to evict people.

Let see....  75.000$ tiny house.   :lol: 

3.000$ for a building permit.

25.000$ for all the utility hook ups

5.000$ for sidewalks and parking area in back.

So you get a 45.000$ house.   :rolleyes:

Have you seen this shit, they claim to be a house? No way would I want that crap on my property, even if they gave it to me free and I never had to let people live in it, I still wouldn't want this crap.



They all appear to be about 8'x8', or at most 12'x12', barely big enough for storage, let alone a fridge, toilet, sink/shower heater/AC water heater, table, bed and one chair. You'd have to step outside just to change your mind.

Only a prog government project could manage to spend $75,000 on this, and call it a savings over other ideas.

That could be a 35.000$ safe door.   :lol:

OK, but just don't walk around in the backyard.

Usually they have long hair, so it will be easier to grab them and rub their nose in it.....

They just need some encouragement.  I have plenty at the end of my shoe.

Yep, typical Prog program, the problem in search of a program.
My 16' travel trailer had more room than this thing and cost pennies comparatively.
