Harvard Tiny Houses Turn Into A Big Hit

Unless you've been living under a rock, chances are you've heard of the tiny house movement -- people ditching their indulgent lives and significantly reducing their square footage.

For those unsure if they're cut out for confined living, a Harvard startup project has built two opportunities to try the lifestyle on for size.

About two hours outside of Boston, on secluded land, Getaway is renting out 160 sq. ft. cabins for people looking to escape their larger living quarters and disconnect.

"Part of the attraction is the digital detox and affordable opportunity to recharge and reconnect with people rather than things," founder Jon Staff of the Harvard Business School told the Huffington Post.

There are now two tiny houses available for the public to book for about a hundred bucks a night. Each is designed by Harvard Graduate School of Design students and include a comfy queen bed, a stove, a toilet, a shower, classic books and board games -- all while being completely off-grid.

The second cabin and newest addition "the Lorraine" sold out five months of weekends in a day.

Staff says there has been tremendous interest from all over the world and Getaway is working on expanding further.
