You know pint-sized homes have hit the big time when thieves start nabbing the mobile ones. These charmers show off the allure of small-space living.
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.
