A Tiny Home Takes Shape in Brooklyn, but It May Not Stay

Post by MotherLodeBeth » Mon Apr 11, 2016 10:02 pm

NYTimes has a nice article on Tiny Houses in todays paper and noted 'Ms. Mercer is building her house in Brooklyn, but probably will not live in it there. It’s on a trailer, and when she is done, she will tow it away, possibly upstate, where a tiny house colony for techie types and a left-leaning tiny house collective have appeared.'

Since Troy and Melanie live in upstate NY I thought they might be interested along with others who question whether Tiny Houses on wheels were ok in NY state.

Tiny House should be a right.
I know I will be living in one soon enough

The ex mayor of NY, Bloomberg, was pushing to make tiny homes legal in NYC. I am considering using some of that power as a backing to legalize them out here.
