2015 was a great year for tiny homes.
This 400 square-foot tiny home was made from two trailers in Austin, Texas.
In the past decade, there has been a shift in real estate towards more efficient living. People are swarming from mainstream living towards smaller, more intelligently-designed living spaces. Some of these tiny homes are eco-friendly with small carbon footprints, while others are glamorous and fancy. Still others are repurposed from all kinds of things from storage containers to old airstream trailers.

2015 was the official year of Tiny Homes if you ask us (you did ask us, right? I mean, you’re here, afterall.), thanks in part to dedicated TV series about tiny homes from networks like HGTV and a bevvy of small, mom and pop bloggers who have documented their experiences moving from ‘normal’ homes to the itty, bitty, micro-size living spaces we featured here.
So without further adieu, here are five amazing examples of efficient tiny home living.
This 160-square-foot micro home was designed to be super zen, and totally minimalist, housing a family of 3. It’s literally called a ‘micro home’ so enjoy that while you look at the pics.
This 319-square-foot home sleeps 8 people, and offers full-size appliances for efficient cooking.
This futuristic Ecocapsule is solar and wind-powered, and is only 67-square-feet.
At 140-square-feet, the Toy Box Tiny Home actually has room for a king-size bed, if you can believe it.[ via ]
