I love using this in a partial shade setting! And it's very hardy!

Great choice.

I live by myself, am a 63yo male, and couldn't live in a tiny house. I live in an even larger home at this time, but feel that around 2,200 sq.ft. would be optimal. Also, I'd want a large garage/workshop as I like to work on projects. If I did want to live in a tiny space, I'd first check out a used travel trailer. That would be a lot less expensive but admittedly would not have the cute factor.

I totally agree with omanges -- it's a romantic idea that's not doable for most of us. I confess to being totally entranced by the idea of tiny houses and will drop just about anything to look at pictures of them.

However, I'm afraid I just have too many antiques that I love and won't part with at this phase of my life. I don't need 2000 sq ft, but I do need more than 400. Plus, I'm just too much of a homebody to be happy spending the vast majority of my time in community spaces. I agree with the other commenters who said it can work when you're young because you go out with your friends all the time anyway. Maybe the best compromise is to have tiny home for a vacation home when you want to get away from everything anyway.

Mind you, if the stock market tanks again when I'm ready to retire, then I may be building a tiny home for my retirement house and will somehow convince myself that 400 sq feet is plenty if it means I can ditch the corporate world sooner.

A great one-dish meal: steam it, then sautéed with some (cooked) white beans. Clear a spot in the bottom of the pan, and toast a tablespoon of Tomato paste and some fennel seed in that hotspot. Then stir it all up. Great. (a common Italian dish.)
