  1. STOP with the STUPID hype here, and calling out Texas as THE place for tiny homes. Texas has regulations also.

    Just because this guy can’t live exactly where he wants to in DC doesn’t mean he has to move to Texas!

    He needs to do a much better job of promoting his vision and finding the right lobby group to get the regulations changed.
