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.
