Small Houses Now
If you're looking for an organization dedicated to small house
plans, designs and photos then you've come to the right place.
Small houses, as you probably already know, needn't be lacking
in style, luxury or technology.

Tiny houses are what you make of them. Small house plans and
designs help many realize their dreams of homeownership. This
is why our organization has decided to cram so many small house
photos on this website, to show off the possibilities of what
a tiny dwelling can pack inside.
Good things come in smaller
packages, as they say, so if you plan your home
design properly and the building of the property goes well then
the whole family will fit fine and enjoy the efficiency of modest
living. One doesn't need to be a fan of Little House on
the Prairie in order to be a fan of tiny homes.
One needn't be a troll, a goblin, a gopher or a groundhog either
to enjoy building a modest house (or buying if that's for you).
If fact, just looking at photos or doing a walkthrough of a tiny
property is enough to satisfy many people's curiosity.
Olden New ...
It is a true statement that a fair number of smaller houses happen
to be older homes. This is because people in olden times didn't
need a bedroom for every child, a separate TV room, game room,
kitchen, dining room, garage, basement, attic, loft, patio and
other rooms for relatives and guests.
So, architects back then created small
house plans with modest living in mind, limited materials
and labor. As you cruise through this site looking at all the
tiny home photos be sure to take note of the age, location, design
and style of living. You'll notice a revival and many tiny homes
are new constructions.
Camel Through the Eye of a Needle
This is why tiny houses are so fascinating to many. On one extreme
there are mansions and palaces for those who insist on grandiose
lifestyles. At the other extreme are homeowners of little houses
who have planned on living a modest, modern, evironmentally-friendly
and minimalist lifestyle.
Small home designs are eco-friendly in that they provide a tinier
carbon footprint, use less trees to build, use less energy in
the summer and winter months and generally consumer fewer materials
in building and maintaining.
A person doesn't
have to live in a world famous tree house in order to appreciate
nature and a smaller environmental impact.
One only has to have the desire for buying or building a small
house and plan the interior design for the most efficient, effective
and yet stylish way possible and this will create an immense sense
