Hey it's definitely real, I know somebody who got one of the tiny houses.
Also on the "what if... occupy" tip I was once involved with a community garden in the south bronx that kept getting bulldozed and rebuilt over and over. Kicking off one of the re-occupations we built a little cassita in pieces in another garden around the corner and then carried it all over and screwed it together one night to announce the rebirth of the encampment.
Best moment was dude from the city the first morning talking into his cell phone: "They have a house. I repeat a HOUSE. They're more organized than we thought they were..."
I'm not calling shenanigans, but...I haven't seen any of these around, and I spend a lot of time in WSO. Should I call that number and volunteer my services? Assuming the article's legit and not just a puff piece, this sounds like a project that sudo should be working with.-chrisbee
Even if it's BS, I recall someone- quite possibly from sudo- mentioning a bike trailer/Conestoga wagon type thing that sounded pretty cool. I don't remember whether they built it or were planning to build it...anyone?
