Kena, I understand for a family staying all at home (in quarantine) you don't think of a tiny house. But for a single person it might be the opposite.
Someone who likes being alone, who can work from home / at home, who doesn't need a lot of stuff or large things ... and if there's a garden around the tiny house to grow the needed food ... then being in quarantine in a tiny house can be an ideal situation.

As a partner of someone whose work shifted to work-from-home and Zoom meetings, I'll say that discrete space for WFH is going to become more important. Her desk got hurriedly setup in our living room, which is adjacent to kitchen, and the hallway to bath and bedrooms. During calls/classes/meetings use of kitchen was not possible save for quiet tasks, and transit to bath or bedrooms was in view of camera, and therefore off limits.
Our house has openings between kitchen, dining, living rooms, but by no means "open-plan". Luckily we have a second bath in finished basement, so it's not a total disaster. If my job was possible from home, we could operate on separate levels and do fine. My coworker's spouse is WFH and their condo IS open-plan, so she either has to retreat to bedroom or go outside while he is on calls.
Thankfully we have plenty of outside space as well, and plenty to be done in it!!
i was wondering the same thing. I suppose the good thing about tiny houses is that they generally have some sort of access to the outdoors, and are probably way less limiting than a small apartment with no balcony, for example.
My house is quite small (about 500 square feet), and we are pretty careful about clutter and organization, but for me it has always been 100% worth it to have my own work space that is separate from where I sleep and relax. I am seeing colleagues have a real hard time working from their bedroom or sofa or kitchen table and I`m glad that I insisted on having separate office space (if tiny-- 2.5x just under 3m- same size as my bathroom) from the beginning. This in a tiny house could probably just as easily be something involving a folding screen or something, but I know for me I want my work life separate from everything else.
Our outdoor covered porch is getting a workout, as it always does, as a work/garden/animal/brewing/pantry/etc space.
