Do you think you could live in a tiny house? I mean, really tiny, like a few hundred square feet or less? I’m always amazed by people who choose to live in tiny houses. Yes, the homes are cute but I need a little bit of space. It might be fun to transport one of the smaller ones around America for a year’s adventure though. I thought it’d be fun to feature some of these tiny houses on Houzz that are growing in popularity.

A cute little bungalow in Chicago has oodles of charm with plenty of detailing!
An even tinier house is the Ynez model from Timbercraft. You can cart this one from spot to spot.
I love this little brick house that I photographed in Galena, Illinois. The town was home to Ulysses S. Grant and its hills are dotted with historic homes. A charming town with lots of shopping and sight-seeing if you’re looking for a quaint place to visit!
This pretty home is called the tree house!
Not all tiny houses are transportable. The larger ones have a permanent residence. All this blue house needs is a white picket fence!

Tiny House Interiors
Making great use of space is critical in tiny houses. Bedrooms are often found in lofts, and if you’re lucky, you’ll have a stairway to the loft instead of a ladder. This tiny home interior makes perfect use of light with white walls and ceiling, along with skylights and windows.
On the other hand, a small house gets a cozy cabin look with loads of natural wood.
A mix of wall and ceiling finishes add interest to small space living.
To keep the loft area of tiny houses from becoming claustrophobic, paint the wall and ceiling white.
Just because a house is tiny doesn’t mean it has to be plain. Custom cabinetry in the small kitchen lends a rich feel to the space.
You have to learn to be creative when decorating small spaces. The owner of this bathroom exceeded expectations by using an old barrel as the base of the tiny home’s bathroom. So adorable!
I’ve seen people on television purchase tiny houses around 200 square feet in size. I’m claustrophobic and don’t think I could live in a house that small. Maybe 800 square feet is the smallest I could go. How about you? Could you live in a teeny tiny house?
