Bigger isn't always better. Increasingly, homeowners are choosing to live in close quarters where the traditional three-bedroom house is traded in for something much, much smaller. Tiny homes are typically 100 to 400 square feet, but anything under 600 square feet is considered small. Some are modern works of art; others are rustic cabins in the woods. Here's a look at a few for-sale listings that fit the bill.
For Sale: Homes Under 600 Square Feet
For Sale: Tiny Homes for Those Looking to Downsize
In the heart of downtown Seattle, this one-bedroom, one-bath condo was well-designed considering its small size. A galley-style kitchen with granite countertops and stainless steel appliances leads into an open dining and living room.
Meanwhile, privacy is preserved in the bedroom with a sleek, sliding door.
Described as a “vintage, storybook ’30s cabin,” this log home measures 534 square feet.
The living space doubles as a second bedroom with a Murphy bed that can be folded down when overnight guests are in town. A porch and patio also provide additional living space next to a landscaped garden.
