Livin’ Tiny in Texas

At this point, it’s a good thing that we’re getting used to the greening trend in development, as well as in land-use planning, that encourages more energy and economically efficient ways of living.

Not so in Texas: a big state where some folks are thinking little.

The Luling, Texas-based Tiny Texas Houses takes a “Salvage Building” concept and creates, well, really little houses, ranging anywhere from 12-foot by 16-foot to 12-foot by 28-foot. Our question is, with those little houses, is placing a shed on your property considered a subdivision?
