49 Tiny House Designs

From Charitable Micro-Homes to Mini DIY Homes

— June 25, 2016 — Autos
These tiny house designs demonstrate a few of the ways that creative people are becoming homeowners in markets around the world where buying a home is simply unfeasible. Since most tiny home structures are required to be built on wheels due to regulations, this gives people the freedom to temporarily park these structures on a convenient lot and simply pick up and move when needed. Beyond just inhabiting in a small space, people who challenge themselves to reside in a tiny house tend to be highly interested in living that's environmentally friendly, minimalist and mortgage-free.

Some of the most dynamic tiny house designs include ones that look like modern pieces of architecture or ultra-small rustic cabins. Individuals, couples, entire families and seniors looking to re-live the freedom of their youth are a few of the groups that are most interested in this alternative kind of living.

The tiny house movement has become so widespread, there are entire villages, festivals and dating sites devoted to enthusiasts of small-space living.
