I think if I built a tiny home, I would also build a substantial greenhouse next to it and connect the two with an enclosed breezeway. That way the greenhouse could be used for additional living space if it had a small table and chairs or a comfortable chair or two.

The greenhouse wouldn't need to be fancy although it could be if you wanted. I'd be happy with something simple like this with a couple of small folding chairs for the table. I might tuck a reading chair somewhere. And I'd always have flowers growing.

These are all delightful JennyPenny. Just passively taking them in. I think the connected greenhouse is a great idea. I interned on an organic vegetable farm a few years ago and being in the warm greenhouse during the cool and damp May that year was lovely.

Cottage housing or bungalow court is a possible way to concentrate small houses together. They are typically around 500 Sq ft each. All the similar set ups I've seen have six houses on one lot. https://goo.gl/images/2OgcK8
