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.

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!

    • Leslie is on the northside of AA. Welcome to the group. Come out and play (as soon as this is over)  
    • i guess for me I'm thinking more in terms of longer-term data analysis...I haven't spent time testing it, but I'd be willing to bet that the distribution curve of a random set of data (with certain parameters) and somebody's individual golf scores would be virtually indistinguishable. Now of course I could have a day where I'm struggling with something very specific that I know I'm doing wrong...a problem I sometimes have is keeping my weight back and hitting behind the ball with my irons. I might have a day where I'm struggling with that, and plus maybe I'm really tense when I'm putting and missing short putts, etc. So my bad score that day isn't random, I know what the problem was. But I know I'm just going to have days where I struggle with something like that, and I'm going to have days when it seems more effortless. Which day is which to me is what is more random. And if I know, statistically, to expect to have days like that, I can just understand it's just a part of the game, and still enjoy myself. For me often if I've had a couple really good rounds in a row, I'll start expecting to continue to do that well, and get really angry and discouraged when the bad round I should have been EXPECTING finally comes around. I guess this all comes down to having realistic expectations for me. How happy we are is usually a measure of how reality played out relative to our expectations. That's not to say you don't continue to learn, practice, work hard to improve, take responsibility, etc. Back to the casino analogy...you're working to improve your edge! But, the edge plays itself out over the long term and, to me, it's not the best idea to put too much weight on any individual result. And obviously it's not random if a pro scores a 65 and beginner scores 120...this is more about just our own personal one set of data/scores. But hopefully I've gotten my idea across, and I understand some will disagree.
    • I think if you study your game carefully you will see that your rounds/shots are not really as random as you might think.  
    • I think the randomness comes from the variables that conditions bring into play.  Beyond that, it's up to me to steer the car.  If the wheels come off, it's due to my own lack of skill and/or preparation.  This is why I am putting in work to get better.
    • I just liked seeing the pictures, and comparing them with a really poor video I made of myself hitting a couple of shots.  Immediately, I noticed that my hip rotation going back is good, but that I seem to stop close to square at impact, instead of being open. I know... I know... I need to post a video.  I need to get a set-up that will let me record it properly.
