Tiny houses are popping up all over the country as more and more people are downsizing and simplifying their lives. Small houses have a charm all their own, no matter what the style. They’re smartly designed to make the most of every square inch of space. If you’re interested in small house living, you’ll enjoy this collection of 10 tiny houses I found at Houzz.
Tiny houses don’t have to be plain and boring. Porches, shutters, and other architectural elements can be added to any house with a small footprint.
A charming red cottage has an expansive screened-in porch to enjoy lazy summer evenings. Large rocks mix with flowering shrubs in the nearby landscape, adding to this home’s appeal.
This two-story charmer reminds me of a cottage straight out of a fairy tale.
A rustic cottage in the woods is called the “bird house.” Rustic logs provide the railway for the upper deck.
This tiny house enjoys pretty views as well as an outdoor campfire area complete with Adirondack chairs and a rustic bench painted blue.
Nantucket style wraps this cozy cottage in nautical style. I think the main advantage of living in tiny houses is having less home to clean! Every time I sweep and mop our floors, I wish we lived some place smaller. I don’t think I’d mind cleaning this coastal home.
Tiny houses look good in craftsman style! I don’t know if you’ve heard or not, but the DIY cable channel has a new show starting October 24th. It’s called “Tiny House, Big Living.” I definitely want to watch it and see how people adapt to small space living.
I think this cozy cottage might be my favorite. I love the porch, the uniform windows, the metal roof, and the flagstone walkway. My current home has a metal roof and it’s one of the many features that attracted me to it.
How about this stone charmer with its simple lines?
Finally, here’s a true tiny house complete with kitty to greet you at the front door. I think my claustrophobia would prohibit me from living in a house as small as this, but it might be fun to vacation in one for a few days.
Earlier this year I wrote about the Return to Small House Living where you can see more tiny homes!
