Here is a story from one of my favorite sites ” Tent City Urbanism ” on America’s housing crisis:
Housing is a human necessity and not a luxury. The cost to rent a small apartment has become way out of the reach of the average wage earner and is causing social problems and contributing to homelessness. That is why I support the small house movement. A small modest house powered with safe renewable energy can be built for under 20,000.00 . There needs to be affordable housing and small houses as an option to anyone who wants it.
