Small homes have gotten so hot, thieves are lifting them.

In recent months, bandits have made off with a 200-square-foot cabin in Canada’s Yukon woods and a tiny house in Texas. The latter was recovered, and its owner now recommends a boot and a hitch lock for other owners of tiny homes.

Here’s a look at some homes measuring 600 square feet or less that aren’t on wheels.
