« Turns Out Obama's "All Of The Above" Plan For Energy Comes Down To The "One of the Above" He So Favors: Higher Taxes on Energy Companies | Main | Ryan Budget Passes House; 10 Republicans Defect To Vote Against It »
March 29, 2012

The Smug. Oh God, The Smug.

The music. It's so precious.

The breathy college-radio voices.

The houses which are absurdly small.

News account here.

With grand designs on minimizing their housing footprint, Christopher Smith and Merete Mueller have spent the last 10 months building the tiny home of their dreams.

"It's 19 feet long wall to wall,” Smith said. “The interior square-footage is about 125 square feet.”

The interior layout consists of a sitting area, kitchen and bathroom. A vaulted ceiling makes room for a sleeping loft that can accommodate a queen-size mattress.

“The interior looks a lot bigger than the exterior,” Mueller said.

A house with 125 square feet.

This isn't a lifestyle; it's a hobby. You can own a Chevy Volt... if you're rich enough to have a couple of other cars. Sure, you can then designate the Volt as the Car For Quick Jaunts To The Post Office.

Other people, who don't view cars as toys or luxury goods, will need more robust cars.

And that's what I suspect with these guys. It's a cute stunt, trying to outdo each other's fashion choices -- your house is 125 square feet? I'll make mine 89 square feet! I win! -- but I strongly suspect these guys have a lot of money, and do not need to fear a large chunk of their net wealth being tied up in a silly property that they might have to unload in a hurry if they realize they can't live in 89 square feet.

By the way, I note these guys don't seem to have children.


Thanks to krakatoa.
