Tiny Homes Under 400 Square Feet

These small spaces offer lots to love, and what they lack in floor space, they make up for in charm.

Tiny footprints can make a big impact — on the environment, your wallet, and your quality of life. These micro homes obliterate the notion that living small means living with less.

Indeed, several of these listings are offering a lifestyle, not merely a new house. Whether you fancy acres of secluded woods, a waterfront dock, or a novel aesthetic, the following homes offer a glimpse into a redefined standard of living.
