Sure, big houses scream luxury, but a project like the Casa Grove I by Mateu Architecture affords its inhabitants all of the essential domestic pleasures without all of the wasted space. The tiny one-bedroom dwelling sits on a long lot surrounded in protective old oak trees.

Constructed with an overwhelmingly industrial aesthetic, the home's sheet-metal siding balances the lush greenery of the Florida property, embodying a collection of gray hues from the patio to walls. The Casa Grove I by Mateu finds itself matching the contemporary architectural language of shipping-container houses. Stats for Charming Corrugated Cabanas Trending: Older & Warm
