House Building – smaller is better

HOUSE BUILDING

I’ve always thought that that manufacturer who can build a modular one or two bedroom home that can virtually be droped from the sky anywhere – would become as big and successful as any major car manufacturer.

Through this period of excessive house building that led to the economic crisis we are all now in, I was saying, why are these houses so big and so expensive? Then the housing bubble burst and we are still collectively paying for the housing/banking crisis.

But in the future, why not a small one or two bedroom, well designed, not cookie cutter, $30,000 cottage with basics. Then let the homeowner add on as he moves up. Washer/dryer, garage instead of carport, etc. There seem to be many architects that love to design the small house. Even modular housing could be made that is artistic and distinctive – why not support these architects and help people get homes again?

Time to remember what happened to baby carriages. They got bigger and bigger. Then one person invented one so small it could be carried in the car. That soon wiped out the competition. Smart builders could learn a lesson from baby carriages.
