The small house movement also known as the tiny house movement, is a famous description for the architectural and social movement that advocates living simply in small homes. In the United States the average size of new single family homes grew from 1,780 square feet in 1978 to 2,479 square feet in 2007, and to 2,662 square feet in 2013, despite a decrease in the actual size of the average family. Reasons for this include increased material wealth and prestige. The tiny house movement is a return to houses of less than 1,000 square feet. Frequently the distinction is made between small between 400 square feet and 1,000 square feet, and tiny houses that are less than 400 square feet, with some houses as small as 80 square feet. Downsizing to a tiny house is a great way to do away with large mortgages, and a way to live a more sustainable lifestyle.

Some of the tiny house designs you will find include teardrop campers, bicycles, sheds, pod houses, tree houses, car camping, van dwelling, gypsy vardo caravan, backyard offices; small living, small houses, apartments, cottages, park models, house boats, yurts, house boats, cob cottages, dome home, house trucks, buses, RVs, travel trailers, cargo trailers, no loft tiny houses, tiny house vacations, gingerbread cottages, beach shacks and more.
