The Surprising Number Of Americans Open To Tiny House Living


A new survey of just over 2,000 Americans reveals over half would be willing to live in a tiny home. According to Business Insider, such interest in tiny homes has been on the rise since the start of the coronavirus pandemic. Source: Getty Images What's more, 72% said they would consider using a tiny home as an investment property. Affordability, efficiency, eco-friendliness, and minimalism were cited, in that order, as the four most attractive factors that the tiny home lifestyle has to offer. Privacy and mobility, however, fell lower on the list.

  • VP Pence Open To Invoking 25th Amendment As Trump's Behavior Deteriorates

    It's no secret that President Donald Trump has been very unhappy indeed with Vice President Mike Pence's refusal to halt the Electoral College Count. According to Business Insider, Pence is said to be disappointed and saddened by Trump's public and private attacks on him. However, sources say Pence isn't ruling out the option of invoking the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from office. Still, sources say Pence and his team are reportedly worried that Trump may descend into even more mental instability. They fear that by invoking the amendment or starting an impeachment process, Trump will be triggered into action and put the nation at risk.

  • How The Pandemic Is Giving 'Box Office' A Whole New Meaning

    The pandemic shows no sign of abating in the US, and thus, neither has remote working nor remote learning. And according to Business Insider, that's led to a boom in the 'office in a box' market, in which people install minuscule 'home' offices in the backyard. In a recent survey of just over 2000 American consumers, 54% of respondents said they would buy a tiny office. Among them, 62% said they'd purchase a backyard unit. 30%, reported that the ideal tiny office would fall between 200 to 299 square feet. In terms of pricing, 26% said they'd spend less than $8,000 on a backyard office unit, while 23% said they'd fork out between $10,000 to $19,999.

  • Les éthylotests disponibles dans les commerces qui vendent de l'alcool dès juillet

    Jusque-là, seules les discothèques et les épiceries de nuit devaient proposer des éthylotests à leurs clients. Cette obligation va bientôt s'étendre à tous les magasins qui vendent de l'alcool. Mais Julien Chivé, caviste bordelais, n'est pas vraiment convaincu. "Je trouve que ça ne sert pas à grand-chose. Les gens savent bien qu'après deux verres, il faut s'arrêter si on veut reprendre la voiture. Et les clients rencontrés ce jeudi matin ne voient pas non plus l'intérêt d'en acheter. "Ca me semble absurde", lance l'un d'eux. "De toute façon, après deux verres, on sera positif, donc c'est à chacun de se gérer", explique un autre.Dans l'épicerie de Virgine Matheron, à Talence (Gironde), il est difficile de trouver une place pour les éthylotests. La gérante doit enlever des produits et envisage surtout des coûts supplémentaires. En effet, dans le supermarché Carrefour City, qui en commercialise depuis un an, ces produits ne sont pas très populaires. "On en a vendu trois en un an", confie le gérant. Près de 50 000 commerçants devraient proposer des éthylotests à partir du 1er juillet, sous peine d'une amende de 675 euros.
