10/13 Mark Burton’s Tiny House and the Dream of Affordable Home Ownership

Mark Burton’s tiny house on wheels has caused quite a stir online and in the UK press — compact, ergonomic and ecological, you can take it anywhere! From the wilds of Scotland to London Town, this portable cabin can find a home (and even become your home, albeit a small one).

Burton also builds and designs customized static tiny houses [at Tiny House UK]. The tiny house movement is big in the US and Canada and Burton sees a real need for economy of living space in the UK as a solution to the housing crisis — in particular, with regard to the inaccessibility of the property ladder and the seemingly unreachable goal of young people becoming first-time home buyers…

Cheap to run, fully insulated and capable of being positioned in a small space (someone’s garden, perhaps) Burton’s tiny house provides all of life’s interior essentials. With a shower room, a loft-built double bed, a lounge and a kitchen area, there’s not a lot to mess up, and there’s just enough space to feel cozy and comfortable.

When positioned by a main, fully hooked up building, the tiny house need not be off-grid, as all its water and energy needs can be supplied by a system of connecting cables. (Keep in mind that currently you still need planning permission to erect a small dwelling in your garden or on land in the UK.)

If Burton’s vision of widely available compact living comes to pass, for the price of a deposit on a conventional property, you could have your own tiny home!
