This House Looks A Little Plain, But Wait Until You See What’s Inside

A lot of homeowners today still think that bigger is better, but there’s a growing trend out there of tiny home-ownership. These houses have minimal square footage, but what they lack in space, they make up for in character and brilliant design. In fact, when you step inside these homes, you tend to forget how small they really are.

Chris Heininge is a brilliant craftsman and designer who is at the forefront of the tiny home revolution. Back in 1999, he was living in Aurora, Oregon, and noticed how people were abandoning their McMansions in favor of smaller homes with a lot more personality. Since then, he’s built dozens of tiny homes that not only cost less to build, but are actually cheaper for homeowners to maintain.

Just take a look at one of his mobile tiny homes:
