There’s no denying the fascination we have with tiny houses. The existence of at least four tiny house television shows (including a House Hunters series dedicated to the topic), countless listings on AirBnb, and a flourishing Pinterest community all point toward a trend turned legitimate movement. Perhaps it’s a resurgence in manifest destiny, or maybe it’s an aspiration toward a simpler, more Scandi-style of living, but it’s got us hooked.
An exercise in extreme Konmari, tiny homes force their owners to pare down strictly to essentials, which in turn, can lead to a more sustainable lifestyle.

Perhaps the best feature of any tiny home is the ceiling—beautifully stained wood, smart pendant and recessed lighting, and well-placed skylights. This giant tiny (ha!) is no exception, only made more desirable by the huge kitchen.
