Since it's my dream home, of course my UFO houseboat will have an elevator

I drove by the old Toyota headquarters yesterday on my way to Sam's Club and noticed all the Toyota signs and logos gone, and their huge lot empty. When I drove by just a week ago business seemed normal. It's a huge facility taking up an entire city block.

By 'tiny home' I prefer one with a permanent foundation, and much larger than those built on a trailer platform.

There are four floors! Surely we can find space! (I need my books around me, too )

I don't mind the house-on-wheels idea. Think about it. If you really didn't like your neighbors, you could simply take your house and move it to a new neighborhood.

I would go batty in a house that was only 80 sq ft, though. I need more room than that for my wine collection alone.
