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

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.

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 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.

Studiomama used custom-made plywood furniture to pack a fold-out bed, a standing desk and extendable dining benches into this 13-square-metre residence – which lays claim to the title of London’s smallest house.

A wood stove, anchored by a hearth made of local beach stones, radiates enough warmth for the entire building.

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.

“To fit in a budget, the activities required to fulfil within the cabin were explicitly simple: a place to eat, sleep and read for two, everything else is to be offset outside,” said the Chilean architects.

Architecture firm BIG has created a small black cabin with an angular roofline in the Hudson Valley, as the first model for prefab-housing startup Klein. More

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

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.

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.

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.

British architect Richard Horden developed the concept for the Micro Compact Home to create a functional and comfortable home within a 2.6 metre-wide cube.

“A tiny space like this has to be designed like one would design the interior of a caravan or boat,” said studio co-founder Nina Tolstrup. “Everything has to be custom designed as there is not room for any off the shelf furniture, which was a great challenge.”

Dubbed the Farallon, this tiny house from Tumbleweed Tiny House Company comes in two sizes (20 feet and 26 feet) and features a stylish farmhouse-style interior. Take a peek inside.

“Depending on the angle it appears small and compact or long and slim,” said Architekturbüro Scheder. “A space continuum with differentiated spatial impressions ranging from narrow and wide, low and high to small and large.”

“I designed a large opening of the same size as the sea side on the road side in order to keep the view passing through the building in the absence of the owner,” said architect Yasutaka Yoshimura.”It stands between land and sea and became a house as a window to see through.”

“The wharf is medieval and assembled with wood,” said the architects, explaining their material choice of recycle wood. “Its identity is kept long beyond the material’s resistance, an identity that allows [it] to change, to replace, keeping all the values.”

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.

To offer a solution for temporary housing, DUS Architects used bio-plastic to 3D print this eight-square-metre cabin. When it is no longer needed, the structure can be destroyed and almost all the materials be reused.
