No One-Size-Fits-All Community Model

Life in 120 Square Feet - 0014

I was just looking back on some posts I had written about a year ago and this one stood out to me specifically to remind you about again. Please take a look! Alternative Living Solutions: Tiny Homes, Pocket Neighborhoods, and More!

I thought about it quite a bit because so many people look at the Golden Girls-style household and think that is what we mean by community living as we age. And while that is a more than viable option, there are so many more. Your choice of community should reflect your personality, your desires, your hobbies, and your interests.

In this post I discussed Tiny Homes, which are making even bigger waves this year. About 4 different television shows on all the home improvement cable networks have surfaced over the last few months. I shared the story of Bette Presley who believes that by downsizing her life drastically she can keep her children from having to deal with a house-load of possessions when she becomes unable to take care of herself.

I also wrote about pocket neighborhoods, living with family, and Dr. Bill Thomas’s The Green House.

Now, I want to know what you think?

What are your thoughts on tiny homes, pocket neighborhoods, and other alternatives to shared housing? What other alternatives would you add?
