Going to a sports car race tomorrow and was looking for inexpensive sun shade options for my daughter and this popped up. How in the hell could this be worth $999.99? This website is like IKEA for the idle rich...

This shed could be yours for only $1,050 per month...which is roughly my mortgage on a 3 bedroom ranch in suburban Milwaukee.

Yeah, but the water is included, which is pretty sweet.

It's actually pretty cool how they crammed so much into a shed. I've always been a little intrigued by the tiny house thing. I don't think I'd ever want to live in one - I have too much stuff, but I like looking at them for some reason.

Certainly not to justify the price for that tiny space, but we've internalized a "need" for more and more space over the decades. Those original Levittown houses in the late 40s, early 50s were tiny mouse houses, but people raised families in them. But it is tied in with the notion of our primary identities as consumers. Consumers acquire stuff and keep on acquiring stuff, and need a place for that. Before that ideological/psychological transformation in the post-war period, that level of acquisition was reserved for the elite, and so most of us didn't need that much. We're all on the treadmill and we're making it go faster.

We live in 850 square feet which is the biggest place I've lived in 10 years. New York City cured me of hoarding any stuff.
