We mean really, really tiny houses.
How you would feel about living in a house that is only 300 square feet? 125 square feet? Even 60?
Cozy, or just cramped?
For some perspective: in cities like New York and L.A. the average apartment is likely to be about 600 square feet. In the Midland community, most 1-bedroom apartments are roughly 700 square feet.
This concept of tiny living may seem a bit far fetched, but there are a growing number of people that say it isn't too tough at all. Many site the economical and environmental benefits- a 400 square foot house doesn't cost a whole lot to heat.

For the brave of heart, these tiny dwellings can certainly function as full-time homes. Manufacturers offer them with full (albeit limited) kitchens, bathrooms complete with showers, and sleeping areas that accommodate up to a queen sized bed.
For those that prefer their castles a bit larger, you can use a tiny house as an addition to your current home. One can easily be placed in your back yard for guests, studio or office space, your recent college graduate who is moving back home, or just for as a mini vacation spot when you need a little “me time”.

Tiny houses are often cheaper to build than a mother-in-law suite above the garage or an addition to an existing home; and they are easily moved if you decide to sell.
