move everything-including their three

A family-of-five say they have never been happier after selling their five-bedroom house and everything in it - in order to move into a 180sq ft trailer. Renovator Dino Petrone, 36, blogger Ashley, 32 and sons Gabe, 8, Gavin, 7 and daughter Quinn, 4, from Ventura County, had what many would consider an ´ordinary´ life in California. However when the family stumbled across a piece of land they described as ´perfect´, they decided to downsize in order to make it their own, swapping their family home for the $8,000 (£5,900) trailer, which they´ve turned into a luxurious abode to rival

this would appear to be part of the tiny house movement. When I was a youngster, 5 of us spent 4 months in a 24´ travel trailer waiting for on base housing at Keesler AFB. That experience has imprinted on my psyche NO TINY HOUSE. No way. No how.

Dad used to say we had to go outside to change our minds. My sister´s turtle had it best - he lived in the bathtub...

As many commenters say, it’s an Instagram project. They are reliant on neighbors for electrical hookup. Where does their sewage go (normally the loo in a trailer - and this is a 5th wheel trailer, not an RV - empties into a container in the trailer and has to be dumped at a place designated for that. No mention here of a permanent hookup to a sewer system or ?


In years past we have very much enjoyed having a large RV with all the amenities. They are lovely, one can live in one for extended times, but long term? She must go to the grocery store somewhere every day as refrigeration space is very limited. Bijou bath is a new euphemism for a very tiny bath, tiny toilet, tiny everything. Not included in her photos.

Been there, done that, would not enjoy as a permanent home.

There is nothing unusual nor "special" about living in a 180 sft trailer or "tiny house". When we lived in San Diego, we had many Navy friends who were raising families in similar sized mobile homes. They didn´t seem to think they deserved newspaper writeups or special attention.

This is something everyone should try once in their life as a life lesson. Just as everyone should have to wait tables or work with the public at sometime in their life. Nothing like living the life, to learn what is and isn´t important. As I sit in my house with all the bells and whistles, I often think that homeless people have the right idea, if you can´t carry it you don´t need it. That would be a little simplistic, but this change in their lifestyle is very doable and even if they go modern tomorrow, I would imagine all their lives will have changed forever.

People live on boats around that size and do quite well. If it works for them and makes their life simple, go for it.

I remember years ago, a lady who lives in Kansas was being interviewed by ABC News and they asked her what it was like having all of her belongings swept away from a direct hit by a tornado.. She said it was "liberating". I get that...

I love cozy cabins, tiny spaces, even tents. Yes, actually I could live in something like that permanently. Alone! Let me have my internet and my books, I am a very happy camper.

But, the second you put in another human I start needing more space, more privacy. My wife and I have always been better in our home than out in bigger spaces. Even if we became billionaires, we would still live in a small space.

Now, add our two boys and right away, we needed much more space. They loved their musical instruments- electric guitars and brass (anything brass!). What a racket! But, what about when friends came over? What about relatives at Holidays? Sleep overs? Entertaining anyone?

Life requires two things that seem incompatible- privacy and space. These folks are obviously experiencing a temporary adventure. I guarantee you, three kids in a closet is not going to work out well in 8 years!

Re #3, it’s the Instagram Era rather than the late 50s.

As young newlyweds, we lived in a tiny trailer - not even a mobile home - in Barstow in the early 50s (no kids) while waiting for an apartment to be available. A mobile home would have been a mansion to us!

Marines had to go and scramble for civilian housing in Barstow and thereabouts while civilian base employees were entitled to cut-rate housing on the base. As a relatively new civilian employee I’d eventually have qualified ahead of my wounded Korean War veteran husband, a lowly Sergeant.

I believe this woman’s Instagram Moment won’t last too long.

I sure wouldn´t want to do it with Kids... Or a wife, come to think of it.

Just me, Yeah, no problem. 20 years ago, I realized that 90% of my ´at home´ life was spent in my bedroom, with TV and computer over on one side, with an occasional visit to the bathroom and kitchen. So when I built my new place out at ´the gulch´ that is all I built for living space; Been lots happier here, and the greatest day in the last two decades was the day I got rid of my 2500 Sq Ft house in town.

It´s what the elite/liberals/environmentalists all dream as to what OUR lives should be. They want us to live in barracks, next to the work place, no need to have a car, no need to travel more than a quarter mile your whole life. Just like 150 years ago living in the factory village and shopping at the factory store. Huge energy savings. But we would live joyless lives. And their cost of supporting us would be minimal and the elite would have all the money and live luxurious lives.

After the Rodney King riot we decided to buy property far away from Los Angeles. In 1993 we bought forty forested acres nestled in the Coastal Mountain range in the middle of Mendocino County. We put up a barn shaped storage shed, 12x16, and TK built up the interior with a separate bedroom with two sets of bunk beds, a dry kitchen area and small table. Even a small closet and a storage area. For six years we spent every vacation “luxury camping” at the homestead, Fort Serenity. In 1999 we decided to pull the pin and leave LA. I was only 45.

It took nine months (June-March) for the permanent house and I loved every minute living in our “cabinette” – it doesn’t make full “cabin” status. Our neighbor had put in electricity for his vacation trailer and let us hook up to his juice. He sent us a photocopy of the bill every month and we sent him a check. It only took 10 minutes to clean and two minutes to sweep out the outhouse. I had my “town day” when I ran errands and went to the laundromat where I read books under a shade tree behind the building. The land was paid off and we had no mortgage. We lived on TK’s $2,000 a month police retirement. It was wonderful.

When the house was finished the new mortgage kicked in and we had to return to full time employment. We’ve been free from the workplace for eight years. I clear trails through the forest for walks with the dogs and the cabinette is a regular stop. It no longer has the electrical connection, but its my cozy place. It’s my “hide-out.”

I lived in my RV for three years. Only thing I didn´t like about it was that everything starts breaking after that much use. Nothing in an RV is designed for continuous use. Refrigerator, toilet, water heater, movable bed, awning, etc all gave out on me, and everything else was in bad shape.

Give her 10 years. When the cramps and hormones kick, she might want a few square feet of privacy.
When I was married, there was the house and all the problems.
Now, I´m in a one bedroom apartment with central air, Dishwasher and washer and dryer in about 700 square feet. Life is good.

I never have understood the compulsion to cast aspersions at every thought that differs from one’s own. You need to compete with pretentious neighbors for the Mostest award, fine. You think megacruises to one shopping port to the next, that’s cool. Your religious persuasion is the only worthy one, shrug, whatever.
I’ve shared space with six others in a 17-foot trailer for weeks at a time. It was snug, with no privacy and simple fare, but a way for a big family to see a big country, affordably. And I dare say, we had more fun than the high-rise hoity-toities did. My big house is wonderful for the couple times a year all the kids and theirs show up for a week. Otherwise, there’s a lot of work for just two. I’d be as content living aboard our adorable homemade boat, finding new friends at every port and a new view every morning. Someday, we will toss the docklines off, and do it. And you all may wrinkle your patrician noses at us shantyboat trash as we glide past your McMansions, but we love having that option to live, at least temporarily, much smaller and simpler. So did poor Marie Antoinette.
Chac’un á sôn gout, y’all.

Breitbart Big Government, by Sean Moran    Original Article

Former House Freedom Caucus Chairman Jim Jordan (R-OH) told Breitbart News Daily on Tuesday that the Paul Ryan amnesty bill is inconsistent with the mandate of the 2016 election for Donald Trump’s promised border wall and reform immigration. The Donald Trump administration has faced increasing leftist and establishment attacks over their strict border enforcement policies, in which all illegal border-crossers are detained and charged with crimes, while their children are moved to shelters operated by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). Officials hope that the strict enforcement will serve as a deterrent for aliens attempting to cross the

Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz confirmed Tuesday that he is investigating whether FBI official Peter Strzok’s anti-Trump bias factored into the launch of the bureau’s Russia probe. During a joint hearing before the House Oversight and Judiciary committees, Horowitz testified that his office was reviewing Strzok’s anti-Trump text messages as part of a separate probe related to the Russia investigation. “It clearly shows a biased state of mind,” Horowitz said, referring to text messages written as the FBI probe of Hillary Clinton´s private email use was wrapping up and the Russia probe was getting underway.

His request: treat abortion "like an act of murder."

Trump had spoken to the National Federation of Independent Businesses, during which he addressed issues such as immigration and small business policies, before he made the embrace.

Starbucks shares fell as much as 3% in after-hours trading Tuesday after the coffeehouse chain provided a weak sales forecast for its upcoming quarter and said it would shutter 150 stores in fiscal 2019. The Seattle-based company said it would close underperforming stores in “densely penetrated markets” and slow its rate of store growth. Starbucks said it traditionally closes about 50 underperforming locations annually. Starbucks said it expects same-store sales to grow 1% in its third fiscal quarter of 2017. Analysts had expected same-store sales to grow 3% in that period. “While certain demand headwinds are transitory, and some of

As with so many other things involving Trump, there´s plenty of emotion but precious little in the way of facts. The furor reached critical mass after the Department of Homeland Security said on Friday that 1,995 children had been separated from their illegal border crossing parents from mid-April through May. That number included, DHS said, cases where the adults were arrested for illegal entry, immigration violations, or possible criminal conduct. The practice has generated a rising storm of protests,

Roseanne Barr has become untouchable due to the "Valerie Jarrett/Ambien/Planet of the Apes" controversy, irrevocably contaminated by racism. This presents a problem for ABC, which canceled her revived show but wants the show to return in some form because it had high ratings. The apparent solution is to create a new show focused on the daughter character "Darlene," which would exclude Roseanne. Unfortunately, Roseanne Barr owns a chunk of the show, and ABC doesn´t want to be seen letting Barr profit from it, so ABC is in talks to buy the show from Barr so she would not technically profit

The Justice Department’s tepid OIG report, with its risible assertion that there was no political bias in the FBI’s Clinton email probe, suggests that it was written by people afraid to tell the unvarnished truth about the conduct of the federal government’s police apparatus, an agency that openly defies congressional oversight and has participated in a vendetta against a sitting president. The FBI’s leadership clearly hopes that the Democrats will win majorities in Congress and put a halt to the investigations into its multifarious abuses of power. The OIG is loath to face the ruthless reprisals that would inevitably follow

FBI Director Wray has said nothing to reassure Americans that he understands the serious corruption highlighted in the IG report. The FBI´s cover-ups and stonewalling on Wray´s watch add to his credibility problems. Both in is his press conference after the IG report was released, and in his testimony Monday before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Director Wray demonstrated he was more concerned about protecting the reputation of the institution of the FBI than about the astonishing corruption of top FBI officials detailed in the IG report. During today’s hearing we heard about FBI agents who aren’t corrupt and how the Clinton email

Monday at a border patrol facility in McAllen, TX on “CBS This Morning,” co-host Gayle King said the Statue of Liberty is “weeping right now” over the separating of immigrant children from their families. King said “We arrived yesterday afternoon. We went straight to the facility, the location where kids and their parents were reunited. All I can say after talking to the people, watching the people, listening to the people, that the Statue of Liberty I think is weeping right now. It’s unbelievable the stories we’ve heard.” She added, “We’re standing in front of a converted warehouse. This is

Fired FBI Director James Comey refused to appear before Congress on Monday to talk about his handling of the Clinton email investigation, and his fired deputy, Andrew McCabe, asserted his Fifth Amendment rights against self-incrimination. Former Attorney General Loretta Lynch also declined to show up for a major hearing where the Senate Judiciary Committee was looking into the inspector general’s report detailing major bungles in Mr. Comey’s handling of the Clinton investigation. Mr. Comey’s lawyer said he was out of the country — though Sen. Charles E. Grassley, committee chairman, said he saw Mr. Comey
