From the inside, these cleverly designed abodes don't feel so teeny. Plus, check out our 50 favorite tiny houses.
The 1,000-square-foot cabin in Washington state, designed by Olson Kundig, features sleek wood-and-steel interiors.
The outside is made largely from steel, and three-story structure sits on a petite 200 x 200-square-foot frame.
While the main residence at this Floridian home is of standard size, the guest house, designed by Sweet Sparkman Architects, is just 1,600 square feet. Natural wood paneling lines the interiors, and floor-to-ceiling windows offer picturesque water views.
Outside, the home is nestled among trees.
It might only be 11 feet wide in some areas, but Dubbeldam Architecture and Design's Contrast House doesn't lack in style. Built-in bookshelves and a sleek kitchen counter make smart use of the small space.
The house narrows at the back before leading out to a small courtyard. While the home isn't exposed to a great deal of natural light, the firm incorporated windows where possible to enhance the flow of sunlight throughout the space.
Christopher Kilbridge Architects packed two sleek stories into just 1,500 square feet for this home in Turo, Massachusetts, a popular summer destination on Cape Cod. With flexible walls, the interiors can be converted into one large open space or sectioned off into smaller rooms to fit the family's changing needs.
Though Turo is a summer hot spot, the home can easily be lived in year-round. The screened open-air porch can be transformed into a mudroom when the days cool down.
Though it has ample living space, 2,000 square feet of it, Redaction House is much smaller than the average U.S. home. Found in Wisconsin and devised by Johnson Schmaling Architects, the residence was built for an artist and her young family.
The wood and brick materials for the home's exterior were sourced locally from Northern Wisconsin and Illinois. Dark-stained cedar between the upper-level's windows add a pop of color to the façade.
Another tiny home from Olson Kundig, this cabin in Canada's Gulf Islands is a humble 191 square feet. Despite only having one room, there is plenty of space for style. Simple wood-finished surfaces create a rustic-meets-modern look, and large windows allow for sunlight to fill the retreat.
An outdoor shower sits just outside the sleeping area. The petite lodge requires virtually no maintenance, and is the perfect retreat for a true nature lover.
