Simply put it is a social movement where people are downsizing the space that they live in. The typical American home is around 2600 square feet, while the typical small or tiny house is around 100-400 square feet. Tiny Houses come in all shapes, sizes and forms but they focus on smaller spaces and simplified living.
While some people sprawl out in their homes or apartments, plenty of humans live in rather small spaces: mobile home trailers, RVs, Hong Kong's cramped 40-foot square apartments. Some designers are looking into new ways to make small spaces more habitable with rooms and furniture that shift around, and using every inch of available storages space. Some of these are free-standing houses while others are more mobile homes, but all of them contain bathrooms, cooking space, and living quarters, and all of them are very, very small.
Could you live in a tiny house?
