    I presume that you use the term tiny house based on the cheap ass USA show of the same name. Everything that I've seen from the show is a caravan that you need a truck to move -They have the bizzare concept that you can build a "tiny house" and get it certified. The only readson to do such is that its in your parents backyard and its got wheels so bypasses any planning regulations. otherwhise you have a 2+tonne caravan and don't own land where you can plant it. SOME councils will give you leeway whilst you build a certified house. most common thing is people live in a (insulated niceish shed whilst building council approved dwelling. Any of the like from the show would be moved on after a year or so (if the council knows about it of course -neighbors can be pricks) But the MORONIC concept is that building anything is the problem - NEED to OWN land first -then see what you can get away with.

    Really the obvious thing is to build something -To the maximum width onto a tri axle semi trailer would be bigger than the crap on the show and have standard shipping rates. Could also go pop out like the modern campers too.

    Botanically, the banana is the largest herb. It is difficult to put on weight just eating fruit; Not quite the same case with bananas. Not that that is a technical distinction.

    So could one survive on bananas alone? Clearly we need a banana plantation on the commune.

    A "Banana Republic" perhaps?

    I can see the defence budget being a significant portfolio in your cabinet. You will have to post full details in the section for Furniture, Joinery and Cabinet Making as it will be far too political to escape censorship in the "Nothing to do with Woodwork" section where such topics would naturally fall, but are strictly forbidden.

    Good point, but with our start-up budget going on infrastructure like sewerage and electricity we're left with $3.65 for defence. I propose we spend this on bananas which we'll put in our pockets and pretend they're guns. Should work for a while.
