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.

You could win $5,000 and outfit your kitchen like a Food Network Star!

This treehouse-slash-guest room looks small from the outside, but boasts a living room, office area, and bedroom within. Take a tour.

For DIY pros, the projects that come with home ownership can be a delight. For everyone else, there’s an undeniable appeal to being able to paint the entire house (or pay someone else to paint the entire house) over the course of a single weekend.

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.

Tiny house dwellers are grocery-shopping strategists because they simply can’t store impulse purchases and bulk pantry items. Thinking like they do and limiting yourself to what you need minimizes waste and keeps your wallet from getting too roomy, as it were.

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

9 Times ‘Tiny House Hunters’ Buyers Forgot They Wanted to Downsize

Shipping containers, vintage trailers, trees — if it’s big enough for a welcome mat, it’s big enough to be a tiny house. That really puts “necessities” like walk-in closets in perspective, doesn’t it? (Technically, some walk-in closets are probably big enough to be considered tiny houses.

This tiny house is a musician’s dream: it houses a giant working amp and the deck even doubles as a stage. Take a peek inside.

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 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.

Designed by Derek “Deek” Diedricksen of Relax[link href=”http://www.relaxshacks.blogspot.com” link_updater_label=”external” target=”_blank”]Shacks.com 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

Surround yourself with your favorite stuff (and curb the rest).

Inside this treehouse-inspired tiny cabin, you’ll find salvaged church windows, reclaimed wood, and a funky dining table set crafted from old boats.

You might not be in the market for a Murphy bed that folds up into the wall, but who couldn’t make use of some clever under-the-stairs storage or an ottoman that doubles as a coffee table? 

Tiny houses have been trending longer than we think. Remember Oscar’s trash can or Jeannie’s bottle from I Dream of Jeannie? Reminisce on these famous tiny houses from pop culture past.

It’s far simpler to shuffle furnishings from space to another when the hues you’ve chosen are part of the same family; wildly differing colors and motifs, on the other hand, can make your home feel disjointed (and perhaps a wee bit like a hotel with room themes.


These Tiny Houses Give Luxurious Living a Whole New Meaning 36 Photos

Whether you share one room or twelve, going to bed angry is a lose-lose proposition. Of course, the stakes are a little higher in a tiny house, since getting kicked out of the sleeping loft means having to curl up on the kitchen floor.

Since hidden storage is at a premium, many tiny house dwellers keep things like dishes out in the open — and choose pieces that brighten the corners they occupy. Bigger-house dwellers should follow their lead, no?

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.

Tiny house dwellers treasure details like rooftop decks and front porches because their interior spaces are limited — but those spots are just as lovely for those of us who don’t eat breakfast three feet from where we sleep.

Outdoor living room, anyone?

Living small doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice design details.

An insulated glass garage door opens to a small deck, connecting the interior space to the landscape beyond.

An interior that’s stuffed to the gills can be more than a little exhausting. Unoccupied areas, on the other hand, are a breath of fresh air.

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.

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

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.

Wouldn’t it be lovely to have a room of one’s own, à la Virginia Woolf, for producing art (or, you know, taking luxurious bubble baths, or assembling complicated model train sets)? In close quarters, your home office or reading nook might have to do double duty as the kitchen table or guest bedroom — but with a good pair of noise-cancelling headphones or a favorite throw blanket, you can make it yours.

In only 100 square feet, this tiny house known as the Nugget fits a kitchen, bathroom, and sleeping area. Take a peek inside.

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?

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.

Like Marie Kondo, the bestselling author of The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, tiny house dwellers limit themselves to possessions that “spark joy.” Take a page from their books, so to speak: If your stuff isn’t serving a purpose or making you smile, is there really room for it in your life? Sorry, dusty old bowling trophies.

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.

Whether you’re in a downtown studio apartment or a one-room cabin in Montana, your home’s footprint doesn’t have to prevent you from living large; with a bit of strategic thinking (and a well-constructed loft bed, of course), any space can feel like a palace.

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.

With an attachable greenhouse and porch, the Elsa by Olive Nest Tiny Homes proves that you can still have it all in a small space. Take a peek inside.

Most of us spend between a third and half of our income just putting a roof over our heads; 68% of tiny-house dwellers, on the other hand, have no mortgage at all. It’s easy to get sucked into believing you need the biggest home you can afford, but thinking small can free up funds for other priorities (like that backpacking trip you’ve always wanted to take.

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.

Bedrooms are often the last places we bother to furnish; after all, who’s going to see them? Even if you don’t live in a space where your sleeping spot is visible to one and all (or even just dinner guests who need somewhere to stash their coats), you owe it to yourself to furnish it with care; after all, you see it all the time.
