I could see multigenerational or group housing arrangements where there are multiple tiny homes on a plot of shared land. That would keep people together in group settings but might eliminate most of the 'stabby' problem as Wheaton puts it when it comes to getting along with people when cohabitating.

Yeah, I know. I was being a bit silly, but also projecting the feelings of alienation I would likely experience living alone in a McMansion parked on a bit of carpet sod.

True, but it wouldn't help with the stabby problem people get when they share land or garden space...or pretty much anything at all.

Living now on 12 square meters plus bathroom, i can definitely relate to the feeling

also, to be fair, your mentioned fact at least proves that it is possible indeed for all of the population of that era to be happy with little housing space, which is something important that often is forgotten

I just moved out of 950 SF and into 1600 SF. Plus garage. I’m much happier.

That house looks like crap. I think you'd be better off buying a couple used shipping containers and combining them into a living space. I have seen people on Airbnb do it, and I am thinking about doing something similar. However, all the locations that I would like to live have extreme weather, so it would require additional planning. There is a great YT channel on tiny homes called Living Big in a Tiny Home: https://www.youtube.com/user/livingbigtinyhouse
