Design Happens is full of home decorating, DIY, places to shop, freebies, and renovation tips and ideas; but what is intriguing me most right now is an article about tiny houses. A house can qualify as "tiny" if it under 500 square feet and is fully functional (it must have a kitchen, bathroom, bedroom, and living area). I believe I know people who have closets bigger than this.
Here is an example of a tiny house, built by The Tumbleweed Tiny House Company. It's so darling, but so little.
By living in a tiny house, not only would you clearly save on utilities bills, but you also don't have a mortgage! Amazing! Tiny houses typically cost between $12,000 and $90,000. You pay for the house upfront and thats it! Uh hello, why didn't I know about this before!?
I wonder where tiny houses are located, I'd really like to actually go into one, maybe even stay in one. By myself. I mean, can you imagine if I brought Elvis with me? Unpretty picture.
HGTV held a contest between 3 designers who were each responsible for creating a tiny house. Check out the pictures, it is truly unbelievable what these people can do! Tiny Little Houses.
