Turn on HGTV today and chances are you might see one of the popular tiny home shows. Before the economic downfall, the housing trend was leaning toward McMansions and then around 2009 a movement toward small house living was launched. You’ve probably seen those tiny houses that are less than 500 square feet in size. While that’s a little small for my liking (I have claustrophobia), I can see the attraction toward cozier cottages.
How adorable is this house? It has quality features like you see in larger homes, like a nice front porch, attractive wooden door, brick walkway, and more. I could see myself living here.
This tudor style cottage reminds me of something out of a fairytale. It has a lot of charm and curb appeal.
While this home is small, it’s definitely more expansive than most tiny houses you see today.
The small house living movement got its start with the book Not So Big House written by Sarah Susanka. Smaller houses mean less cleaning and upkeep, which is really attractive to some people who are looking to simplify life.
If you don’t feel you could live in a small or tiny house, perhaps you could have one for a vacation home.
I just adore this Southern charmer! Small houses don’t have to be a boring box.
My first home was a little bungalow like this, and I would move back into it in a heartbeat. Every corner of that house inside and out oozed charm.
Here’s a cool little house in the woods!
Now this house is truly tiny! Could you live here?
Do you think you could live in a small or tiny home?
