    I can't speak for anyone else but this is all I need and I'm good :

    "The stress of nature never ends, but at a certain level still other driving forces originate which put the whip to the creative power of man with a multiplied force... The new relations are detected first by a few (with the finest moral tentacles), afterwards by more, then they are consolidated in rules which begin to push aside the earlier moral code and in the end eliminate it."

    "They who decry the loss of masculinity the loudest, are certain of it in themselves the least."

    I think it's really more about the things you have in your Home to provide you the Comfort you want in your Life. The basics like bed, fridge, toilet etc.. along with a few other things that you personally enjoy like maybe a bookshelf, musical instruments, art supplies, music collection etc..

    You can fit all you need in these Tiny Homes so I too would be pretty relaxed in one of them. After having what you want in your Home, I think the location of it also plays an important part while Size of the Home being less important.

    My Drums and Keyboards would likely take up half that space ...not to mention the wife's Guitars....

    TBH; That's a bit smaller than our current home (750 SF), and doesn't include our 'music/utility room' which is also small but practicable at 400 SF........all on a first floor (NO STAIRS!!! for this Old man)....but we've got acreage to expand 'if' we ever decide too....

    Tiny homes are great (we've built and lived in some).....but I think 'small homes' are more practical, especially for 2 or more persons....and would suit more people, for longer periods than the tiny ones.....just an opinion...

    Glad this came up about utility room.

    If we're talking about a city design, based of the Fresco design, then there is no need to worry about a utility room. a segment of the city/small town/ community can be allocated to those things like music and other arts and crafts

    look at it from an object oriented design approach. living space is segmented away from creative space or agricultural space or academic space.

    Not everyone wants to live in cities....We currently have 10 acres, but five would work for our NEEDS.....Gardens, small Home, Woods, Bees and Goats..on a pond, surrounded by forest..

    Here's what's in our Utility Room....'Accessible' Plumbing and manifolds for radiant 'in floor' heating/cooling, Hot Water Tank, Shower, Washer/dryer, some storage on one side....Musical instruments on the other side ....this works pretty well for us....I built 'moveable walls' (walls on wheels) for whenever we have a party and need to expand the music side...

    Wow...That's impressive and equates to the size of most peoples bathrooms!!!..(You must've had an Outhouse too, right?)...

    Few among us could manage even a night in such small quarters, much less a decade....

    Our Tepee is about that size (100SF), which will soon to be hitting the Pow-Wow/Sundance Highway for the summer....Once the gardens are planted.....
