We interview and photograph real people living in tiny homes, most less than 200 square feet. That’s smaller than the average primary 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. With tiny kitchens, minuscule bathrooms lofted bedrooms, and multi-purpose furniture, tiny houses redefine the American Dream and question what material objects you need to be happy.
