Housing really really is needed for the disabled–

Come on, folks, tiny houses should be an option for everyone!!!! But most especially for the disabled. I can only speak for us (mobility and fatigue problems mostly) in saying that a tiny house would solve so many of our problems. But I wish someone would look into how a tiny house could help solve the needs of others with disabilities.

New York finally got some sense thanks to the Disability Advocates. HOORAY!!! Finally a judge says that yes, indeed, after well over 50 years, we really honestly did mean that mentally ill people should have a choice of living on their own. I have not asked, but I’ll bet that a lot of folks, given the choice between a 150 square foot room they never can leave in a squalid “group home” or an actual 200 square foot house that they OWN and can manage on their own would choose the latter in a heartbeat.

And this is an affordable house–with all of the amenities and a lot less of the stress of a larger place.

So come on disability advocates–first the right to live independantly and then the right to build tiny houses to let us live independantly!!!!!

  1. Yes, we need more options and choices in housing for the disabled/elderly. Also need to make them safe and not a target for would-be thugs/vandals if these were blocked in a small community- maybe utilize fencing. lighting, location and neighborhood watch activists.
