We interview and photograph real people who live in tiny homes, most being less than 200 square feet. That’s smaller than the average master bedroom in the United States – a country where 2,600 square foot homes are commonplace.

These customized handcrafted tiny dwellings grant their owners financial freedom with a minimalist lifestyle and a small footprint. Armed with tiny kitchens, minuscule bathrooms, lofted bedrooms and multi-purpose furniture, tiny houses are redefining the American Dream and questioning what material objects you really need to be happy. You can check our tiny house here.
