The Tumbleweed Tiny House Company sells minuscule prefab dwellings with themed appearances -- New England manor, Gypsy caravan, artsy mid-century modern, etc. They're small enough to put up without a permit in most jurisdictions, but large enough to live (humbly) in them.

and some other tiny house companies that was published in the Chicago Tribune, Providence Journal, Arizona Republic, and some other papers. There's a woman who's building them as temporary homes for people whose houses were destroyed during Katrina."
