Tiny House Owner Looks To Make Boston Home

BOSTON (CBS) -- Wanted: A place to park a tiny house in the metro-Boston area.

The residence in question is a 200-square-foot house, which Chris Page built with his father last year on an 11-by-22-foot trailer.

"It's actually a little big for a tiny house," Page told WBZ NewsRadio 1030. "I have plumbing, a shower and a bed -- all the things that a standard house would have."

Now the Andover man is looking for a place to park his home, but the task seems to be harder to do, especially in tight residential neighborhoods, like in Cambridge and Somerville.

"I visited with some people in the city and they have a big enough backyard, but the driveway is too narrow," Page said. "So there's no way to actually get the house into the backyard."

Once the house is in place, it would need to be hooked up to electricity and water. Page says the house has what's called an incinerating toilet, and he's happy to help pay for rent and utilities.
