A Great Concept But ...

Read with interest the article "Supes Pass Housing Plan" (Aug. 29).

Several years ago, we tried to go the "tiny house" route for a family member in Brainard, Minnesota, as Brainard had passed zoning changes allowing tiny homes to be built on substandard lots to help with housing issues. The problem was, we couldn't find a contractor to take on the project as we were told there wasn't enough money in it for them. Why build a tiny house for around $50,000 when they could build a standard size one for around $250,000 (in Minnesota)?

Tiny houses are a great concept but not sure if it'll really work unless it's a "do it yourself" project.
