Small and efficient homes, whether in the city, out in the country or even on the road, are becoming more and more popular. Interior design innovations are helping more and more people realize that, sometimes, less can be more!

As more people move into cities (and tiny apartments), efficient interior design has been driven by necessity, but many have been applying these clever and inspiring innovations to create comfortable and tiny homes elsewhere as well. The environmentally-minded love them for their efficiency (low heating and lighting costs). The philosophical or spiritual might appreciate them for the way they encourage us to forgo all but the most necessary worldly possessions.

In some cases, like with the story of Jenna and Guillaume, these tiny houses can even be pulled across the country on wheels!

This is an art car at Burning Man, not a tiny home. Still cool, but not habitable.

Many of these have no bathroom and are not proper houses. Loads of tiny houses are fully equipped but you missed many brilliant ones.
