If you wanted a simply but fully functional home, you must use this one as a big inspiration.

The 280 square feet home built by Chris Heininge is probably the best and literal example of “tiny living”. Chris belongs to a family of craftsman, artists and designers who also sometimes do logo printing for safety helmets. His family already built over a hundred of homes around the United States.

Influenced by his family and his experience as a Christian missionary in Asian countries, he embraced the principle of tiny or simple living. He loved this Japanese tradition of a simpler life without unnecessary material objects crowding it.

At year of 1999, Chris began building the first in his series of tiny homes. It immediately gained a lot of attention from the family’s past and new clients. Aside from being cheaper to build, it also doesn’t cost a lot to maintain.

Below is a set of image that feature’s one of Chris’ tiny homes.

So if ever you wanted a simple home, you can try building your own. Although renting and buying a new house is still the most practical way, building a home the way you wanted it will surely offer the best satisfaction.

    I’d really like this place for a beach or lake vacation property. Thanks for sharing the pictures this is a really nifty space.

  3. Crystal says:

    I love this idea! It would be perfect for someone that is single.

  4. I love this!! I am obsessed with the Tiny House movement and this is a gorgeous example! It doesn’t feel small and uses it’s space so wisely!

    I LOVE this house! the decor is amazingly beautiful and love how they maximize the space without sacrificing the look of the house. So pretty an comfy.:)

  6. […] all heard about small space apartments. We also heard about tiny houses with multifunctional spaces. But have you heard about micro-tiny apartments? If not, then the video below will explain it […]

    My sister & her hubby rent and I always tell them that they are wasting their money. For the same amount they pay in rent each month, they could have their own place and invest in something that’s theirs.

  8. Jenn says:

    This tiny home is awesome! The decor is beautiful and I love the colors. Not sure I could handle a tiny home, but i love the thought of it. So much less to clean and care for.

  9. I love the looks of a tiny house on the inside and out. I often think about living in one and how much simplier and enjoyable life would be without all the “stuff” that surrounds you!

    I definitely feel this is something that should be looked into for the homeless. With four stepdaughters, two lizards, my husband, me, a bee hive, acres of land and a new dog coming soon (along with some chickens and possibly a pig) this isn’t quite practical for us, but I definitely feel it could help a lot of people. Thanks for sharing!

    I just think these are so cool. It’s crazy how inefficient we can be with space in our larger homes.

  12. Nikki says:

  13. wow, that’s pretty impressive! It’s very organized and no clutter…what a better way to downsize!

  14. Elizabeth O. says:

    This is such a cute home. It’s tiny, but it’s complete with everything you will ever need.

  15. Melissa Smith says:

    These tiny homes blow my mind!!! Especially this one since it is by far, the nicest, most modern design I have seen yet!

  16. Rosey says:

    I think it’s put together so nicely. It’s really visually appealing!

  17. Marjorie Uy says:

    Wow! Small house but functional and I love the interiors. But I don’t think it will work on me. I have favorite things collected over the years. But this is inspiring.
