If you just want to hoax, you wouldnt put that picture in there.

It wasnt a hoax and it wasnt an over sight. They are just in there to make money and dont give a **** how.

Tiny homes are one thing, but throwing a roof over the side entrance of your house and calling it a home is a completely different thing.

I don't actually think 'tiny homes' as a concept is that bad - as long as they aren't a literal shed and meet all the housing / rental requirements, it really just means a prefab / modular house that is on the smaller side. The tiny homes 'movement' is meant to show that you don't need a 1/2 bed expensive house to live happily.

In quite a few large European cities, most of the population rents long-term rather than ever saving for their own house, in Ireland the opposite is true but one way we could go in future is that the younger generations save for / buy smaller houses and then live there while saving to afford a house to raise a family in. The mortgage on a 40-45sq.m 'tiny house' would be a fraction of what you'd pay to rent a place in Dublin right now.

This is a 45sq.m (min size for a 1-bed in Ireland) 'tiny house' by a Canadian company that I wouldn't mind living in. Nice interior styling and at <€90K would actually be affordable to people in their early 20s.









Ireland just has problems with studios getting a bad name because every studio here seems to be created when a landlord has a spare room with just enough space to squeze a bed and kitchen in with the bed facing the microwave which is stacked on top of the TV which are blocking the oven.. That shouldn't be the case, in other cities, studios are a very practical while cheaper way to live, perfect for the younger generations & students who don't have any children.

If it does go up on daft it would have to meet regs whereby the BER is listed in the advert. That place won't get a BER rating, so its clearly illegal and would quite quickly be removed.

From your link :

Typically around 16 to 40 square metres in floor area these mini houses are insulated to near zero energy standards; are complete homes; are quick to build in sustainable materials; have LED lighting; cost virtually nothing to heat; and are double-glazed. They’re also cheap to build, at about £1,100 / €1,250 per square metre plus VAT; are frequently off-grid; and are designed to last a lifetime.

None of that applies to throwing a corrugated iron roof over a side passage.

i hear you; what I was meaning was a cheap copy of a good idea.. If you google images "tiny homes" I think you will see what I mean. Mimicry. ( working on a very dodgy internet connection)

They are the rage in the US and some are as shoddy as this one.

This ad popped up as I was browsing another thread. It was gone after I took the screenshot so I couldn't find it again.
But anyway it's got all the mod cons.

Doesn't look that bad compared to the shed and some other things on here. €950 is fairly steep for one room but at least it's a nice house. Another Spotahome property checked by Veronica too.

Plenty of illegal places and places without a BER Rating have been up on Daft before, only ever been removed when places like this thread pointed them out and Daft/LL got some flak over it.

Oh dear, Veronica is looking a bit rough in the pictures on the site. When did she grow that beard?

Also is it just me or does the window in that room look very odd? Looks like the stud wall is coming into the middle of it. Have the owners just divided up a room to rent it out? And the house owners renting that box room for €950 are disgraceful.

Seems like it. The floorplan shows the house has 10-bedrooms yet it's meant to be a 6-bed.. At €950/month each they're raking in a small fortune.
