The owner of this Austin abode turned two mobile trailers into one 400-square-foot home that’s connected only by a deck.

The sleek design by New Frontier Tiny Homes features a farmhouse sink, shiplap and subway tile squeezed into 200 square feet. Best of all, though, a sliding glass garage door reveals a deck that pops out from the home, making al fresco dining a cinch.

Visitors enter into the Retreat’s living room, which joins to a U-shaped kitchen with lots of cabinet space and full-size appliances. The bathroom has a full-size bath/shower. There are three bedrooms in the Retreat. The first is the master bedroom and has enough headroom to stand upright, while the second and third bedrooms are standard tiny house-style lofts reached by ladder.

This darling red-roofed cottage sits in a grove of leafy trees near the water’s edge in Freeport, Maine. Designed by Mac Lloyd of Creative Cottages, the environmentally sensitive abode packs in a full kitchen, bathroom, living space, sleeping quarters, gas fireplace, laundry, and a loft space, while still managing to seem airy and spacious.

This 550-square-foot Maine cottage has solar panels on the southeast-facing porch to collect energy (auxiliary batteries can store at least a week’s worth) to power the refrigerator and heat shower water. A wood stove, anchored by a hearth made of local beach stones, radiates enough warmth for the entire building.

The Escher reaches a length of 33 ft (10 m) and has an attractive exterior partly clad in Shou Sugi Ban-treated cedar, the Japanese method of charring wood to preserve it. It has a garage-like door and awning that lift upwards to open the home to the outside. The interior looks very luxurious and measures around 300 sq ft (27.8 sq m). There’s a lot going on in here but the most interesting piece of furniture is a custom dining table hidden under the stairs that’s pulled out to seat up to 12 adults.

The cold is kept at bay with hydronic radiant underfloor heating, an air-conditioning unit, and a ventilation system with heat exchangers.

Believe it or not, the owners of the Tiny Canal Cottage got married on the stoop of their Venice Beach home with 60 (!) people in attendance. Of course, the equally tiny backyard helped squeeze everybody in.

The chic, modern 250-square-foot structure is delivered and assembled on-site, and includes a sleeping loft, an expandable kitchen wall, a bathroom, and living room. An insulated glass garage door opens to a small deck, connecting the interior space to the landscape beyond.

This floating 240-square-foot cabin is an off-the-grid summer escape for Maine couple Foy and Louisa Brown. Assembled onshore, a foundation of plastic floatation tubs, Styrofoam, and pontoons was then towed to sea, and the cottage was built above it, using mostly pine shiplap. Louisa carries water out daily via canoe for a tank that fills the shower and kitchen; at night, candles, oil lamps, and solar lights illuminate the home.

Dallas designer Paige Morse renovated two 100-year-old sheds in her backyard to create a cozy home away from home. With just two rooms and 250 square feet, her space is remarkably stylish and space-efficient.

Considering most tiny houses are a similar size and shape, you’d think firms would run out of ideas to make their models stand out from the crowd, but that doesn’t seem to be the case. This year has seen many unique takes on downsizing, including an expandable tiny house, a cardboard tiny house, and another towable dwelling that sleeps up to 10 people. Here’s our pick for the best tiny houses of 2017.

The Sakura is clad in white cedar and topped by a small rooftop terrace. Its living room has a coffee table that can be unfolded to serve as a dining table. The nearby kitchenette offers access to the bathroom via a pocket door, which has a full-size bathtub and a composting toilet.

Spend every waking moment on Alpha Tiny Home’s fold-down porch. And the inside isn’t too shabby, either. A fully-equipped kitchen can whip up alfresco meals for warm summer nights.

The Pequod, named for the ship in Moby Dick, is a marvel of modern amenities and upscale materials, all cleverly maneuvered into one tight squeeze. It measures 26 feet long and weighs 11,500 pounds.

This is the Olympia, Washington home of tiny house pioneer Dee Williams, author of The Big Tiny, a memoir that details her decision to downsize to an 84-square-foot house that she built from the ground up after a near-death experience. Constructed atop a metal truck trailer, the super-small pine-and-cedar bungalow houses a kitchen counter with a propane one-burner, a sleeping loft, solar-powered lights, a composting toilet, and a sink (but no running water). To help others realize their tiny house dreams, Dee also founded Portland Alternative Dwellings, a tiny house education, resource, and consulting company.

This renovated, 100-year-old cottage sits behind the Winchester Manor outside of Huntsville, Alabama. Although it’s small, the romantic home is equipped with brick floors and a jacuzzi tub.

New Frontier Tiny Homes impressed us before with the Alpha tiny house and its successor, the Escher, sports a similar overall design, but with some additional touches to make it suitable for a family.

The Cedar Mountain Tiny House, built by Nashville-based New Frontier Tiny Homes, might look small on the outside, but inside, it’s big on farmhouse-style design. With repurposed accessories, shiplap walls, subway tile, and rich hardwood floors, it’s the perfect combination of rustic-chic and modern simplicity.

As soon as you walk inside this tiny 250-square-foot home, a tidy and warm escape full of country character greets you. Natural light swims throughout the space, and farmhouse-inspired wood accents (most of which are made from salvaged and reclaimed wood) give it a rustic yet modern touch.

Don’t rule out a strong color for a small space. The Indigo Tiny Home by Driftwood Homes USA proves brave design choices like navy cabinets and dark barn wood can pay off in a big way.

Tiny homes aren’t just about looking cute — they’re part of a growing movement that promotes sustainable living. Many designers have figured out innovative ways to make these small homes amazingly well-equipped and, yeah, pretty adorable too.

This 196-square-foot house near Boise, Idaho, is home to Macy Miller, her partner James, their daughter Hazel, and their Great Dane, Denver. A 27-year-old architect, Macy designed the home from scratch and built it on a 24-foot flatbed with help from friends and family. Clad in siding made of recycled pallet wood, the minimalist home is flooded with light and feels spacious despite its size. Hidden storage under the bed, above the pantry, and behind the fridge are contrasted with open shelving in the kitchen to make the space feel bigger. In total, Macy spent about $11,000 on her tiny house and is now able to live rent- and mortgage-free. Take a peek inside. —Ellen Sturm Niz

The bedroom is at the far-end of the home and has enough space for a double bed. The home gets its power from a standard RV-style hookup, though that large flat sloping roof looks well-suited to an aftermarket solar power array.

Talk about a picture perfect country getaway: This custom built 336-square-foot cabin sits on 24 sprawling acres in West Point, Texas—just steps from its own four-acre constant flow lake, tiny lake house, and wooden pier. The rustic wood-paneled interior features a living space, full kitchen, bathroom, and two lofted bedrooms, all housed under a corrugated metal roof.

Tiny Heirloom’s sleek design is a minimalist-inspired masterpiece with a genius rooftop balcony to boot.

This 280-square-foot tiny house is here to prove anyone who claims you can’t use dark colors in a small room wrong. Instead of going light and airy, the Indigo Tiny Home by Driftwood Homes USA is decorated with pops of dark, moody colors.

Build Tiny offers the Millennial Tiny House in three stages: Stage 1 costs NZD59,750 (roughly $43,000) and is a watertight shell. Stage 2 costs NZD90,995 ($65,500) and adds wiring, plumbing, insulation, etc. You’ll need to shell out NZD120,500 ($86,700) for a full turnkey version.

The Sealander Canada does just what it says, using all-electric power to go from land to sea. It’s like you’re living in an actual spy movie.

Each Wikkelhouse is modular and consists of multiple segments measuring 5 sq m (53 sq ft) each, so it can be easily configured to serve as an office or a weekend cabin, for example. It runs from grid-based power as standard, though solar panels and a composting toilet can be added at extra cost for those who want to cut the cord.

Wind River Tiny Homes hid tons of sneaky spots in the Triton for the stuff you can’t downsize. Sure, there’s your basic staircase storage, but the clever layout includes something even bigger apartments don’t always have: a walk-in closet.

The Millennial Tiny House, by Build Tiny, has some great space-saving ideas that we haven’t seen elsewhere. It measures 7.2 x 2.4 m (23 x 7.8 ft) and its center is taken up by a large living area with underfloor storage. Two French doors are positioned opposite each other to promote airflow.

Its interior comprises an office that turns into a bedroom with a Murphy-style drop-down bed, a living room with sofa, as well as a dining area and a bathroom with shower.

The Open Concept Rustic Modern Tiny House stands out from the crowd with an elevating bed that makes the interior seem more spacious. The impetus for the idea came from a client wanting as spacious an interior as possible. Self-taught tiny house builder Ana White designed and built the system by modifying off-the-shelf sliding door parts and a garage storage lift’s electric pulley system.

At first glance, the 400-square-foot Wedge, designed by Wheelhaus, appears to be a tiny luxury cabin but it’s actually a mobile Park Model RV. Lofty 17-foot ceilings and a large sliding glass window at the front give an open feel to the rustic yet modern dwelling, which features a bedroom, bathroom, and combined kitchen/living room area. A 100-square-foot deck offers additional entertaining space. The Wedge is one of six turn-key models offered by Wheelhaus that start from $82,000. Not looking to buy? The Wedge is also available to rent at Fireside Resort at Jackson Hole Campground.

This “Silo Studio” cottage sits on four acres of land in the Berkshires. But make sure you bring food: the tiny accommodation doesn’t have a kitchen, as it was formerly a sculptor’s summer studio.

This tiny home located in Sag Harbor, New York, is just 600 square feet — but if you’re an artist, it just might be your dream come true: There’s a separate studio that is basically everything a writer or painter could ever want for crafting their masterpieces.

Go ahead and invite guests for an overnight stay at the Hikari Box Tiny House made by Shelter Wise. The two “bedrooms” can host more people than its mere 184 square feet implies. The large suite accommodates a luxuriously-wide queen bed, and the second loft fits a twin mattress.

Zero Squared drew inspiration from the RV scene with its novel Aurora tiny house, which features large slide-outs – sections of walls that push outwards to increase living space. In the Aurora’s case they grow the total width from 8.6 ft (2.6 m) when towing, to 15.10 ft (4.6 m) when parked up.

On entering, visitors are greeted with a kitchen to one side and a large dining area with two bench seats on the other. Elsewhere in the home is a bathroom with a corner soaking tub/shower.

Not only is the European bohemian style of the Gypsy Mermaid totally alluring (you have to see the exposed beams inside), but the kitchen even has a fireplace that can be used as a pizza oven. Genius.

The 204-square-foot “Wind River Bungalow” is the Chattanooga, Tennessee, home of tiny house enthusiasts Travis and Brittany Pyke, who started Wind River Custom Homes to help others fulfill their dreams of living simply in mini dream homes. Constructed of rain-screen cedar and hardy siding for extreme durability, the bungalow is full of custom features, including a pine and cedar interior, polymer concrete counters, and a loft ladder integrated into the shelving system. —ESN

The kitchen provides access to a loft office area above. This seems a bit awkward compared to the cool slide-out staircase and must be accessed by climbing some steps onto the kitchen counter and then ascending a ladder attached to the wall.

Tiny houses are popping up around the country as more people decide to downsize their lives. While the structures often measure less than 300 square feet, the tiny house movement isn’t necessarily about sacrifice. With thoughtful, innovative designs, some homeowners have discovered a small house actually leads to a simpler yet fuller life, connecting them with family, friends, and nature while freeing them from mortgages and an urge to keep up with the Joneses.

The Millennial Tiny House’s most standout feature is its slide-out staircase. It’s pulled out from the wall manually and locks into place to offer access to a sleeping loft above. An adjacent door leads to a bathroom with shower, sink, laundry area, and composting toilet.

Four couples in Texas created “Bestie Row,” a mini neighborhood where they could all live in houses lined right up next to each other. Each tiny house boasts a bedroom, living room, and bathroom, and was constructed with a minimalist motif—think concrete floors, grained plywood, and a metal exterior.

Japanese-style Shoji paper doors separate the high-end kitchen and the Escher’s main bedroom. Over on the other side of the home is a small office, child’s room up in the loft, and a bathroom with walk-in closet.

This means that when being towed, the home remains narrow enough to be road-legal, but in its expanded state, residents can enjoy increased living space that wouldn’t otherwise be possible. Indeed, despite measuring a compact 26 ft (8 m)-long, the Aurora offers a relatively generous total floorspace of 374 sq ft (34.7 sq m).

The Tiny Adventure Home has two lofts, both accessed with a movable ladder. The first, which lies over the dining area, is a snug lounge/office space with a small desk, chair, and cushions, while the second, atop the bathroom, serves as bedroom.

We’re bending the rules with this one as we covered it at the end of 2016, but it’s too interesting to let slip through the cracks. The Tiny Adventure Home, by Tiny Heirloom, was built for a couple of climbers who wanted to downsize but keep pursuing their shared hobby and has a real rock climbing wall on its exterior.

Designed by Derek “Deek” Diedricksen of Relax[link href=”” link_updater_label=”external” target=”_blank”] and built by Joe Everson of Tennessee Tiny Homes, this transforming micro A-frame cost only $1,200 to construct. One roof/wall is made of Tuftex polycarbonate roofing: Not only is it translucent to allow in natural light, the lightweight material is attached to the structure with hinges so it easily can be raised and propped on legs to expand the space from 80 square feet to 110. On the other side of the A, the purlins supporting the roof sheathing are placed horizontally to serve double duty as shelves. Two daybeds offer additional storage, a kitchen wall features a sink and space for a mini fridge, and a micro loft has a hinged “sunroof” for ventilation. Architect duo David and Jeanie Stiles drafted the build-it-yourself plans for this A-frame, which are on sale for $30. —ESN

Just one of the homes in Oregon’s Mt. Hood Tiny House Village, “Savannah” features yellow cedar plank siding with red shutters and white trim. So welcoming!

The ground floor is arranged around a living area and the kitchenette has full-size appliances, including a range cooker and sink, and there’s a 5 ft (1.5 m)-long bathtub and shower in the bathroom. The Traveler XL Limited comes with two bedrooms as standard: a master bedroom on the ground floor and a loft bedroom upstairs. If you add an optional second loft bedroom that has room for a couple of beds, plus the sofa bed, there is space for 10 people to sleep.

Circular cedar shingles, a delightful curved door and window, and copper accents throughout this abode (right down to the freezer) underscore a playful “lucky penny” theme that would probably be overkill in a bigger home.

An off-the-grid home, dubbed the Floatwing by the Portuguese firm Friday, is both the ideal home base for people who love water activities (swimming, fishing) or just find floating supremely relaxing.

The Retreat, by Timbercraft Tiny Homes, is an attractive-looking tiny house that sleeps a family of six. It measures 33 ft (10 m)-long and has a total floorspace of 416 sq ft (38.6 sq m), which is very spacious for a road-legal tiny house.
