Would-be buyers test out tiny houses

CROYDON, N.H. — Hilary and Shane Lentz were hooked on the idea of a tiny house, but they weren't sure the reality would be so appealing.
Their curiosity led them to the hills of New Hampshire, where a business that started at Harvard University rents out tiny houses for $99 a night. The company, Getaway, has drawn visitors from afar who come to sample life in a 160-square-foot house before they dive headlong into the lifestyle.
“It's a way to test-drive tiny house living,” said Jon Staff, the founder and CEO of Getaway. “We operate them a little bit like hotel rooms in the woods.”
Across the country, more businesses are letting the curious try out tiny living. Caravan, a hotel in Portland, Ore., offers six tiny houses ranging from 84 to 170 square feet, for $145 a night. Dozens of tiny houses are available through vacation rental websites, posted by their owners.

This could be a viable way for someone to dodge zoning laws, and turn a tiny mobile house into a daily rental.
.........
I could build a small house and then offer it for sale at the farm. Offer test drives for $100. Potential buyers could haul it somewhere or use it at the farm. The majority will not have a suitable vehicle or a suitable spot to take it. An extra insurance cost, when travelling, could encourage customers to not move the house. If a house sells, build another.
 
please buy this thing and then I get a fat cut of the action:
