    I would have thought the most efficient way of living would be lots of tiny apartments in a single well-built building, so that it's easier to maintain temperature across all the living spaces.

    Yeah, that's a major part of what I meant with how inefficient the typical tiny house seems. They are a very individualistic, or selfish if you want to be mean, way of going about the problem.

    Granted, but a single family looking to downsize can't build an apartment block.

    On a semi-related note, show me an affordable apartment building where all of the units get adequate natural light. I am never living in a space with only one exterior wall again, if I can avoid it.

    Well, yeah not being able to cross ventilate sucks. But shitty design is shitty design indepently from the style of dwelling.

    To the first point: a smal group of of people and families can though. It's not always easy, but I know at least of a few cities that actively try to help such private groups to build their own apartment buildings indepently from large investors.

    I'm actively involved in a land trust that pushes for affordable and sustainable housing development in the local area and we've successfully got the ear of local politicians and the developer. It can be done but requires effort.
