The one after that was 200sf and $95k. No land.

That's crazy. To me the biggest draw is that they can be cheap. You could even build your own for a really low cost. Sounds like these people have more money than sense.

I know Japanese people are used to living in small homes, especially in major cities, but 165 sq ft is ridiculous.

That reminds me of the Seinfeld episode where Kramer tucks his Japanese visitors into a chest of drawers for the night.

For $95,000 you could build a small, cozy, simple cottage, with fireplace and wine bar.  If you're going to build it on #5 at Pebble Beach you'll have to talk to Charles Schwab about buying a small piece of his land.  Personally, I have a small piece of land from #18... a wedge divot I saved, priced about $100 at the current values.  For some reason the Carmel City Assessor has never made me pay property taxes on it.

Have you curated this divot and kept it alive and healthy?

Yes, it is planted in my front yard along with divots from Bandon Dunes, Chambers Bay and Medinah Country Club.  On occasion I will chip from it...

The secret to "divot collecting" is to carry a seal-able sandwich bag (to which you'll add a few drops of water back at the hotel/lodge) and ask your caddie to look the other way for a moment.

The first time I did this my caddie kinda freaked out.  But mind you, it was on the 18th hole and close to tip time so he stopped chirping after a few seconds.  I had also bought him a gin & tonic on the 10th hole and promised not to share that info with the caddie master.

No way I could do this with kids. My Colorado house had 5k+ sqft and I still felt crammed. Like Erik asked I’d like to hear from these people 2-3 years into it and see what they think.

My wife was into them. We went to the Boston Home Show last year where they had a few set up. I pointed out to her there were three places to sit, if you counted the toilet. That seemed to end that, now she wants a mobile home...sigh.

Has she seen the movie RV?

272 square feet isn’t a home.  It’s barely a moderately sized bedroom!

That's 1/2 the size of my living room!  I couldn't be cooped up with another person in that space especially if you threw up toilets, beds, stoves, cupboards, etc.   I bet the actual living space would close to 100 sq ft.  

for that...

I'm out!

    • “Very dangerous. You go first” - Raiders of the Lost Ark
    • My observations from being there on Friday.... 1.  What a beautiful course.  I'd love to get back and play it someday.  The Irish course looked great too, just inland of the straits course.   2.   If you love golf and get the chance to go, I'd highly recommend it.  The buzz of being there is hard to describe.  I'm looking forward to the next time at Bethpage already. 3.  I wish there would have been more European fans there,  That would make for a different feel.  4.  People always seem to write about fan behavior at Ryder Cups, I didn't personally see anything that was out of line.  I think it's overblown a little bit.   5.  We walked around most of the morning session to see a lot of the course.  In the afternoon, we went ahead of the groups and sat in the grandstands on the par 3 twelfth.  Pic below.  This was my favorite part of watching the action.  The pin moved from where you see it to the front and there were a lot of close shots on the short hole.    
    • Ah, I like the BDC hat.    DING There's a phrase about counting unhatched chickens. I think it applies here. 
    • Trip to Oregon was no good, hit the driver terrible so I was basically scrambling every hole. Slowly working my way through my left misses off the tee. Mostly mechanics but also part mental with trusting it on the course. Can't reproduce the miss on the range. Finished one shot out of playoff for US Mid Am and US FourBall qualifiers.  Got a decent lead in our points race. Noticed that as I've been trying to improve rib cage and hip depth that the right ankle and foot would get unstable. Asked my trainer/pt about it and this is what he recommended. He just got certified in a foot program. Fingers crossed but for the first time I can really feel myself winding up the upper torso over a solid lower body. But doing it athletically not just faking it by not moving stuff around. It's the most rib cage rotation I've had going back without trying to force it. I like that I’m doing more work at the joint and that the joint is inside my right ankle at 4. I think the key for me with this foot tripod thing is to keep the right knee over the foot, not letting it rotate towards the middle of my stance. I can feel the "spiraling" effect. I have high arches and when I go into my backswing the foot supinates incorrectly losing the big toe joint contact. Ideally you would want to "build" more of an arch of the foot on the backswing and use that "ramp" on the downswing. This would be another way of explaining it. If the arch of the foot collapses then you basically lose access to the deep front line.  
    • Day 211.  Played 18 today, and really came to life in the second nine.  3 pars, bogey, 3 pars, closed out with two bogeys.   Shot a 39 for the second nine, something I'm not sure I've done at that course before (Hansen Dam).  I've had days where I hit a bunch of GIRs on that second nine, one day it was 7 GIR + 2 near, but I think I shot 40 or 41 on the second nine that day.
